Kvaerner to refit MoD in £340M PFI agreement

KVAERNER IS to carry out the UK's biggest privately financed government building refurbishment when it starts work on the Ministry of Defence's main building in Whitehall this summer.

The contractor has a £340M construction and refurbishment contract for PFI group Modus whose main shareholder is Hyder, currently the target of a takeover bid from Japanese investment bank Nomura. Other shareholders are Macquarie Bank, Amey Ventures and Innisfree.

The refit involves major structural work to knock out partition walls and remove the labyrinth of corridors to create a modern, open plan office. The contractor will also have to reorganise mechanical and electrical services, many of which line corridor walls.

Amey will take over as facilities manager for the building when refurbishment work is completed in 2004.
