Google is planning to re-tender its King’s Cross HQ contract due to radical design changes.
The move will be a blow for BAM Construct who were named preferred bidder on the £300m contract last March after beating-off competition from Skanska and Carillion. The value of the contract could more than double as architects Allford Hall Monaghan Morris rework the scheme. Construction information specialist Glenigan said: “BAM are no longer involved on this project.
“It is expected that the redesign will be significantly bigger. It is expected that this may lead to more than one main contractor being appointed when re-tendered.”
