Wates has been chosen to construct the first phase of the £200m ($315.24m) Waterdale scheme in Doncaster, UK.

Cartwright Pickard is the architect for the scheme, which is being developed by UK-based Morgan Sindall's property arm, Muse Developments.

The first phase, worth £20m ($31.52m), comprises council offices and a theatre.

The five-storey, 14,864m² office building will house most of the council's town centre services on one central site and is being built on the former site of Doncaster College.

The entire Waterdale scheme consists of a new public square, public buildings, new civic offices, housing and commercial office space, slated for completion by 2018.

The Waterdale regeneration project is financially supported by the Central Government and the European Union, through the Yorkshire and Humber ERDF Programme.
