We have been awarded the contract to build a new city hall for Sunderland City Council.
The £42m project will see officers and services moving from their existing, crumbling 1970s building on Burdon Road to the former Vaux Brewery site in the heart of the city.
The development will be managed by our North East office in Sunderland which secured the contract in competition with a number of other construction companies. The 190,000 sq ft building, designed by FaulknerBrowns, will be the second building on the former brewery site. The city council has a £500m vision to transform the centre of Sunderland, creating jobs and opportunities for local people.
B+K Project Manager, Paul Anderson, said: “We are delighted to be the main contractor on this important building for the city of Sunderland. This development will herald the regeneration of the city centre and will also encourage further development and investment, boosting the local economy.”
