Three battle over Duxford's Air Space exhibition hangar


BIDDERS are engaged in a dogfight over a £21.5 million deal to build a superhangar at the Imperial War Museum Duxford in Cambridgeshire.

Laing, Mowlem and Amec are vying for the contract to build the Air Space, a replacement for the museum's Hangar 1. The 5,000 sq m hangar, which opened in 1986, is to be extended to 7,750 sq m with additional space to suspend large aircraft from the roof. The interior will be twice the size of the great hall in the British Museum.

Tenders will be returned on February 28.
