Brown picks up biggest ever deal

Perth civil engineering firm I&H Brown has won an £11.75 million land remediation contract to prepare the ground for a key venue that needs to be built to host the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.

The deal is the largest the firm has won in its 44-year-old history and will involve carrying out remediation and enabling works in the city’s East End at a site that will be eventually become the National Indoor Sports Arena and Veoldrome.

As well as site clearance, the company, which also has an office Warrington, Cheshire, will remove redundant services, consolidate and grout mineshafts along with two coal seams.

The managing director of the £40 million turnover company Scott Brown said the job had surpassed an earthworks deal it had picked in Falkirk earlier this year as its largest to date.
