Trio eyes teaching block


THREE firms are chasing a £15 million deal to build an extension to Herefordshire College of Technology.

Willmott Dixon, Alfred McAlpine and Laing O'Rourke are all eyeing the deal, which will see a five-storey teaching block built at the college in the middle of Hereford. Tenders go back next Monday.

The development comprises new IT suites, science laboratories and administration space built at the college's Folly Lane campus. The current learning resource centre is also set to be completely refurbished.

The scheme is part of a phased redevelopment of facilities at the college called the Learning Village.

Work on the first phase will start on site in November, with completion planned for summer 2008.
