Fire safety system at Mac was just weeks from completion


It has now been reported in the press that the contractor has claimed that there were extensive security and safety precautions in place as part of the reconstruction project. It can surely be only a matter of time before there are questions asked about the competence of this contractor (Kier), given the disastrous history of their new-build Dumfries Leisure Centre since completion in 2008. I wonder how they can have been pre-qualified for the Mac reconstruction - and can have £181m of public building work in progress in Scotland?
