Battle on for MoD deal


TWO TEAMS are going into battle for Defence Estates' £500 million Eastern Regional Prime contract.

Mowlem faces a shoot-out with a joint venture consortium of Babcock and support services firm Dyncorp.The news spells disappointment for two interested outfits - a Balfour Beatty/WS Atkins team and a Carillion/Enterprise tie-up.

The deal, which is the last of five regional contracts let by Defence Estates, covers capital works, maintenance and facilities management at around 50 Ministry of Defence sites in the east of England.The contract will run for seven years, with the MoD retaining an option to extend the deal by up to three years.
