Enabling works for Glasgow 2014 to start this month

Enabling contracts were awarded this week for the Glasgow 2014 commonwealth games national indoor sports arena and velodrome, with work due to start at the end of June

I & H Brown will be carrying out infrastructure, remediation and enabling works in Glasgow’s East End.

They will be stabilising and clearing the site, which has had both an industrial and residential use, ready for major redevelopment of the area.

Expected to start work on site towards the end of June 2008, I & H Brown will carry out site clearance, remove redundant services, consolidate and grout mineshafts as well as two coal seams across the building footprint and remediate contaminated areas of the site.

They will also deliver the first phase of the Camlachie Burn Surface Water Relief Scheme providing a new outfall for surface water drainage to the River Clyde some 600m from the site.

Managing Director of I & H Brown, Scott Brown said:"We are delighted to have secured this major contract which is set to completely revitalise this part of Glasgow’s East End, bringing with it huge economic and social gain. Carrying out these important enabling works on time and on budget are the first steps towards preparing the area for the Commonwealth Games and the future redevelopment and construction of buildings such as the Velodrome which is set to follow."

The Commonwealth Athletes Village will also feature at a later stage adjacent to this location.
