The final two teams are Bovis Lend Lease and Multiplex. Detailed negotiations are to begin October 1. No information yet on process between now and then.
It will be interesting to watch what happens with Wembley. The Carter report will be issued August 20. Whispers have it that the offer of Multiplex to build & finance (on the back of suite sales guarantees from IMG who were doing the Eircom Park marketing)will come out on top. Should Multiplex end up with Wembley (where they displaced Bovis) will they be able to overcome the perception that they do not have the capacity to do both major projects simultaneously? Though a huge construction company, Multiplex is relatively new to Europe.
You can bet the knives are out on this one.
