Eversheds wins town hall extension contract

Law firm Eversheds has won a competitive tender with Manchester City Council to provide strategic construction legal advice in connection with the council's project to transform the Town Hall extension, Central Library and St Peter's Square.

The programme will see the Town Hall extension and Central Library extensively refurbished by 2014 to deliver state-of-the-art services and to preserve both Grade II*-listed buildings for future generations. It also involves an international design competition to ensure St Peter’s Square provides a world-class setting for both historic buildings.

Eversheds has a long standing relationship with the council having advised on the Brunswick social housing PFI scheme and the North West Urban Investment Fund in the past, however the refurbishment of the two Grade II listed buildings is the first construction appointment.

Partner in the construction team, Simon Chamberlain, said: “We are pleased to have won this tender with Manchester City Council. This is one of the largest projects in the North at the moment and we are looking forward to continuing our long standing relationship with the Council in new areas of business.”
