Four in the blocks for sport event


BIDDERS are warming up for a £28 million scheme to build a sports centre in West Sussex.

HBG, Willmott Dixon, Sir Robert McAlpine and Laing O'Rourke are understood to be due to pick up bid documents for the deal in Tilgate, Crawley, in October.

Crawley Borough Council's scheme comprises a sports hall, 50 m swimming pool, athletics arena and indoor training area.

Plans also include a games area, health and fitness facilities, artificial turf pitch, gymnastics hall and squash courts. The council has called for the rivals to show 'imaginative design and good project management' to secure the design and build deal.

Sources said the authority is due to choose a winner in December ahead of a start on site early next year. Construction is expected to last 18 months.
