THREE firms are waiting for a result on an office deal in Manchester worth up to £60 million.
Bovis Lend Lease, Laing O'Rourke and InteriorExterior have priced the deal for the first phase of a four-block development for Allied London.
The trio have submitted initial estimates based on a number of variations to the Hardman Square scheme, part of the developer's Spinningfields project.The most expensive options, which include fit-out, are thought to top £60 million.
The second phase is understood to cover the larger buildings within the scheme, including a 35-storey tower.The winner of the first stage is likely to be in pole position for the larger packages. A decision is expected before Christmas.
