Multiplex was pulled days before it was due to start £250m job in February

Qatari Diar is hoping to start work by the end of the year on the phase of the £1bn Chelsea scheme it pulled Multiplex from just days before it was due to start.

Building understands work is now expected to restart by the end of November although it is believed Multiplex is out of the running for the main contractor role.

The 22 Bishopsgate builder had been appointed main contractor on the fourth phase of Chelsea Barracks in a deal worth around £250m. Keltbray had been due to carry out the concrete frame and basement work – which had a pricetag of around £60m.
