Amec leads courts race

AMEC IS emerging as favourite for the management contractor's role on the first phase of a £100 million scheme to redevelop Edinburgh's Scottish Supreme Courts.

The firm is believed to have edged ahead of rivals Sir Robert McAlpine and HBG to manage the £15 million opening phase of the project for client Scottish Courts Administration.

A formal announcement is due later this week.

This phase features the renovation of the Parliament Square building's Exchequer Wing - a three-year job scheduled to begin in May 2001.

Work on the 30,000 sq m scheme will take 12 years to complete and be split into five stages.

Phase 3 will be the largest individual building package, costing £25 million. It comprises construction of four new courts.
