Alf in the dock


Alfred McAlpine has landed a £68 million deal to build a residential, water sports and business park at Barrow-in-Furness, Cumbria. Construction will start on site in early 2007. The complex is being developed by the West Lakes Renaissance Urban Regeneration Company and will eventually see the whole of the waterfront area of Barrow Dock turned into a marina, complete with housing, restaurants and a water sports centre.
