Contractors have been invited to bid for the job of regenerating Union Terrace Gardens (UTG) in Aberdeen.

The council has issued a contract notice for the flagship project, which is part of the authority’s masterplan to revive the city centre.

The cost of construction is estimated at £19 million, excluding VAT, and several firms have already expressed an interest in carrying out the work.

Union Terrace Gardens £22million revamp delayed

Masterplan spokeswoman Marie Boulton said: “There has already been significant interest from the construction supply chain in what is a hugely prestigious project and we look forward to seeing the response to the tender invitation.

“The design respects the heritage value of the site and our aspirations for it to be a high-quality inclusive space.

“In selecting a construction company, we will ensure we have the very best people for the job whilst delivering value for money for the public.”

Bids for the work, which is expected to take 18-24 months, will be brought back to the council for consideration.

The design includes a walkway from Union Street, new landscaping and lighting, pavilions on Union Street, Union Terrace and Rosemount Viaduct and the refurbishment of the Union Terrace arches.

The detailed planning application was unanimously approved by the planning committee in March this year.
