Peel is looking for a contractor to build a £35m manufacturing facility at the Wirral Waters site, in a scheme called Project Perch.
According to tender documents, the warehouse will be used for the manufacturing of large components within the energy sector.
The wider Wirral Waters project proposed by Peel Group on 500 acres of Birkenhead dockland, was granted outline planning permission in 2012. The development of a new Wirral Metropolitan College Campus is currently on site as the first phase.
The deadline for receipt of tenders is 8 December at noon. Walker Sime is managing the project on behalf of Peel. Further upstream on the River Mersey, Peel owns a majority stake in shiprepairer and engineering business Cammell Laird, which makes parts for the offshore wind and nuclear industries.
Peel declined to comment.
