Multiplex and Mott MacDonald have settled their legal battle over Wembley Stadium.
No details of the agreement have been confirmed, however, in a joint statement, the two firms said: “We can confirm that Brookfield Construction and Mott MacDonald as leader of the Mott Stadium Consoritum consisting of themselves, Sinclair Knight Merz (Europe) and Aurecon Australia Pty have settled the legal proceedings between Brookfield and Mott over the design and construction of Wembley Stadium.”
The £253m row over construction at the North West London stadium is thought to be the biggest ever construction legal case in the UK.
Multiplex took legal action against Mott MacDonald in 2008 claiming that designs for the stadium that it took on when it got the main contractor job in 2002 were inadequate, and left the firm open to legal claims from subcontractors. Mott MacDonald had launched a counter claim against Multiplex with a trial set for next January.
