Commonwealth Games advertise City legacy Homes contracts
The Commonwealth Games business Portal, an online business networking and matching service, has begun advertising contracts for building the Athletes Village in Glasgow, a crucial component of the sporting extravaganza.

Developed by Glasgow City Council in partnership with Glasgow 2014 the portal is advertising for around 50 subcontractors on behalf of developers the City legacy Consortium - for such works as solar cell installation, plumbing and roofing works.

Glasgow 2014’s Head of Procurement, David Brown, said: “Hosting the Commonwealth Games will bring a significant boost to the local economy so it’s vital that we have an open and transparent process for companies to compete for contracts.

“Glasgow 2014 is committed to working with our partners at Glasgow City Council to achieve the maximum efficiency, effectiveness and value for money in the acquisition of goods, services and works.”

In order to be considered for Games related contracts businesses must be pre-registered on the site.

Work has already begun on the site of the RMJM designed village, it is estimated it will cost around £150m to construct 700 homes within the new neighbourhood.

There will be a further 700 homes built after the games - so around £107k each to construct.
