City of Glasgow College £200m race down to two

Bam and Sir Robert McAlpine-led consortia will battle it out to build a new £200m campus after the shortlist was reduced to two.

A Laing O’Rourke-led consortia has missed out in making it to the final phase of procurement.

Bam PPP and Glasgow Learning Quarter (Sir Robert McAlpine consortia) will now aim to win the race to develop and build new buildings on the college’s land in Glasgow city centre and the banks of the River Clyde.

The project is financially and strategically supported by the Scottish Funding Council and The College Project Team is working closely with the Scottish Futures Trust to deliver the project using the Scottish Government’s NPD procurement model.

A preferred bidder is expected to be appointed early in 2013.

Once planning consent is achieved, construction is expected to commence in the summer of 2013 with the first stages of the new campus opening in 2015 and the final phases in 2016.

The Bam and Sir Robert McAlpine-led consortia are the final two from nine applicants for the scheme in November 2011.
