Construction sector battles for Games gold
August 15 2008
The village is intended to represent an exemplar in ecological development with 1,000 homes for 7,000 athletes nestling in 40 hectares of verdant previously abandoned landscape at the Clyde Gateway. Housing stock will comprise a mix of apartments, townhouses, detached and semi detached houses which will be marketed for sale and rent in the games aftermath.
Steve Inch, the council's executive director of development and regeneration, said: "The intention is to evaluate these expressions of interest and by the third week in September, we hope to be able to recommend which companies should be taken forward.
"That will be narrowed down to four or five and we will get into what is called a competitive dialogue towards the end of the year. We will then be in a position early next year to recommend who the preferred developer should be.
"I would hope that by Spring next year we will have all the contractual arrangements in place."
