Five bidders have reached the first round of the £1bn Building Schools for the Future (BSF) scheme in Birmingham.
Each of the bidders will now be invited for interviews before they are whittled down to a shortlist of three.
The scheme’s vast size is reflected in the size of each team. Land Securities is working with four contractors, including, Kier and Willmott Dixon, as well as a panel of architects including Building Design Partnership and Birmingham firm Seymour Harris.
Birmingham BSF will be delivered over six phases. Phase one is to start in 2009.
