Bovis appointed to build Scotland arena

Bovis Lend Lease will build the £125M Scottish National Arena in Glasgow, with construction beginning in February.

The Harrow-based firm has been appointed to construct the 12,000-capacity arena, which will open in 2013, a year before the Commonwealth Games.

Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre (SECC) is leading the project, after architecture company Foster + Partners provided designs. Scottish Enterprise and Glasgow City Council are also partners on the project.

SECC chief executive John Sharkey hailed the partnership with Bovis Lend Lease, saying that they had made a commitment to only work with the best in the business to make the arena one of the best in the world.

“Bovis Lend Lease has a proven track record of delivering our requirements on schedule and with their experience and capabilities, they will help us make our vision a reality,” he said.

  • It is strange, to say the least ,that on receiving a "Structures Alert" from NCE that when you read the article there is no mention of who the Structural Engineer is! Once again the Architect seems to be the "designer" with no mention of the Engineering aspects - "come on" NCE and promote the Engineer. If you can't do it what hope do the rest of us have!!
