VolkerFitzpatrick and Buckingham Group are going head-to-head for an £89m industrial job in Northampton.
The two companies have been listed by construction intelligence provider Glenigan as bidders for the scheme, which is an extension of the Pineham Barns business park on the outskirts of the borough.
The successful firm will construct three new distribution and storage buildings, covering a total of 22 ha for real estate developer Prologis.
Work also includes the construction of associated parking and highways infrastructure, as well as ground, engineering and ancillary works.
Architect Stephen George & Partners is the designer.
Buckingham has worked for Prologis previously after being chosen to design and construct BMW’s £12m Northampton distribution centre in 2011.
It has also completed an £11m warehouse for the client at an industrial park in Coventry.
VolkerFitzpatrick also has a number of Prologis projects in its portfolio.
In 2015, it was chosen as the preferred contractor by the client to build a £37m global roasting facility for tenant, Costa Coffee, in Basildon, Essex.
VolkerFitzpatrick confirmed it was bidding for the Northampton job and Buckingham has been contacted for comment.
Developer Prologis declined to comment.
