Dundee House Works


4th March 2020

MORE THAN £300,000 worth of work to replace part of the roof at Dundee House is set to be discussed by councillors next week.

The city development committee, which meets on Monday (March 9) will be asked to agree the works totalling £327,692 and award the tender to Dundee City Council’s construction services division.

Dundee House opened in 2011 and has won two prestigious architecture awards, including a Royal Institute of British Architects award for architectural excellence.

The works which comprise the renewal of existing brown roof coverings and repairs at fifth floor level are expected to start in spring.


Dundee City Council

Dundee draws skilled workers from a 60-minute catchment population of 640,000 and has a local population of over 140,000. The availability of a large pool of highly skilled labour is a key feature in the Dundee economy. Flexibility in the labour force is currently more prevalent in Dundee than in Scotland as a whole. All forms of labour market flexibility - part-time, temporary employment, self-employment and shift work - are widely operational within the city. Labour force stability in the city is excellent, enabling companies to plan with confidence. Labour turnover levels are less than 5% and absenteeism averages 2%.
