Some of the industry’s biggest names are lining up to bid for the chance to build a new Center Parcs holiday development in Woburn Forest.
A formal tendering process has not yet started but CN understands that a number of companies have expressed an interest in the job which is one of the largest leisure schemes on the market outside London.
Balfour Beatty, Kier, Sir Robert McAlpine, Bowmer and Kirkland, Bam Construct and ISG Jackson are all understood to have had initial discussions with Center Parcs about the scheme which is thought to be worth in the region of £90 million.
The site would become the fifth Center Parcs Forest Holiday Village to be built in the UK after it was awarded planning by Central Bedfordshire Council.
A Center Parcs spokesman said the job would be split between three main contracts and that at this stage none of them had been let.
