Alfred McAlpine wins new construction contracts worth over 100m

Alfred McAlpine, the support services group, have announced new contract wins worth over 100m.

The first win sees Alfred McAlpine awarded a 44m contract to design and build Bluestone, the first of a new generation of eco-friendly destination holiday villages, in Pembrokeshire, West Wales. Construction is scheduled to complete in May 2008.

Separately, Alfred McAlpine has secured a series of other new contracts worth over 60m, including a contract to design, develop and build a new headquarters and operations control facility for Huntingdon District Council and two bridge renovation contracts with Network Rail. Work on the projects will commence in 2007. In addition, Alfred McAlpine has been awarded a 5 year support contract to provide IT desktop and network infrastructure services to one of BAE Systems core businesses and a 5 year managed service contract to run easyJet's voice and data network.

Ian Grice, Group Chief Executive of Alfred McAlpine said: "We have ended the year strongly and these new contract wins again demonstrate that market conditions remain good for all our businesses. We are particularly pleased with the award of the contract to design and build Bluestone, where we have been developing the scheme with the local community for 5 years. This project will draw on our experience of delivering major eco-friendly projects, such as the Eden Project, Powergen's renewable bio-mass facility in Lockerbie and the Braes of Doune wind-farm."
