BAM has been named preferred main contractor for Dundee’s new £45m branch of the Victoria and Albert (V&A) museum.

Councillors will meet next week to formally make the decision, with officers recommending the London-based company’s proposal.

Council administration leader Ken Guild said the project was "a hugely important investment in the future of the city," that would create a “world-class attraction”, boosting the area.

"This is a major milestone in the project to provide a world-class building to house the V&A museum of design Dundee," he said. "Dundee's ongoing and ambitious regeneration will reach another level when the construction phase begins."

Philip Long, Director of V&A Dundee, said BAM Construction has an "excellent track record" of delivering "prestigious cultural projects in Scotland".

He said: "This is an important step for all of us in building the home of V&A Dundee, a world-class visitor attraction and flagship of the waterfront regeneration."

The new building will be constructed on the banks of the River Tay, and was designed by renowned Japanese architect Kengo Kuma. It is the centrepiece of a £1bn redevelopment of the Dundee waterfront.
