Five fight for £288m health job

Five consortia are battling to build the £288 million Alder Hey Children’s Health Park in Liverpool.

It is understood that Laing O’Rourke, Taylor Woodrow, Balfour Beatty, Bovis Lend Lease and Carillion were all sizing up the project, although they have not been confirmed as the bidders.

The deadline for pre-qualification questionnaires for the scheme passed yesterday, with five completed forms received.

Project director Richard Glenn said: “We knew from the start our iconic project would generate a lot of interest in the construction and design world, but until today we had no idea how many of those expressions of interest would progress to the next stage, responding to the rigorous and thorough PQQ process.”

Three bidders will be selected to progress to the next stage of the procurement process. A preferred bidder is expected to be chosen by summer 2011, with start on site by spring 2012.
