Four firms run off with joined-up leisure deals


FOUR contractors are set to win projects under the first joined-up Private Finance Initiative leisure centre package.

Seddon has picked up a £6.7 million contract to build a leisure centre at Dereham for Breckland Council in Norfolk while Kier has won a £6 million deal to build a swimming pool at Penzance in Cornwall for Penwith Council.

And Mowlem and Bowmer & Kirkland will be told this month which of them has scooped a £15 million deal to rebuild the Alfreton, Ripley and Heanor leisure centres for Amber Valley Borough Council in Derbyshire.

Alfred McAlpine and Dutch leisure specialist PeliKaan are bidding for a leisure centre, library and health centre worth £12 million for Lewisham Borough Council in south London.

The contracts were procured through local government PFI agency 4Ps to save the councils money by banding together to pay legal and contract fees.
