The National Exhibition Centre Group is seeking a contractor to undertake a comprehensive refurbishment of the National Indoor Arena in Birmingham, a job expected to be worth £20 million.
Up to five firms will be invited to tender for the two stage design and build contract.
The successful contractor will be tasked with upgrading the public areas of the NIA as NEC Group looks to bring in more revenue from food, drinks and merchandise.
The company hopes the upgrade will enable it to sell the arena title rights and bring in more money from sponsorship and general advertising
The arena floor, concourse and both mezzanine floors will be upgraded during the project.
But the Arena Bowl will not be included.
Contractors will have to manage the complex project alongside an “exhaustive” programme of live events attended by up to 14,000 people which will require “complex phasing”.
Extensive M&E works will be included in the project.
PQQs should be submitted by 20 January and invitations to tender will be dispatched on 24 February 2012.
