Waterfront Place tender03/12/19
A KEY PART of the redevelopment of Dundee Waterfront could come a step closer next week as councillors are asked to approve a multi-million pound tender.
Just over £6m worth of work to create Waterfront Place adjacent to the V&A Dundee could start early in the New Year if councillors back the appointment of Morgan Sindall Construction and Infrastructure Limited.
Mark Flynn deputy convener of Dundee City Council’s city development committee said: “This is a very high profile and tangible piece of the waterfront development jigsaw that will be in place by spring of 2021.
“It will offer an interesting and innovative space right next to the estuary for the people of the city and visitors of all ages to use for leisure activities.
“This represents the next element of phased and planned development at the waterfront and I am confident that it will continue in the months and years ahead.”
The work, which is expected to take around 18 months to complete, comprises the construction of hard and soft landscaping areas, an urban beach, decorative water feature and a new active travel/low carbon hub building.
In September the council launched an open design competition looking for initial proposals to develop a unique space that brings art, technology and play together within Waterfront Place.
Open to all interested parties who met the minimum qualification requirements, seven tender submissions were received and early next year a further report is expected to be brought to the committee to approve the appointment of a contractor to develop their detailed design.
The city development committee meets on Monday (December 9).
