MORE than £44 million worth of further work for trade contractors is up for grabs on the Millennium Dome site in Greenwich, south-east London.
Groundworks, structural work and finishing packages will be let to trade contractors in works totalling £24 million in total.
Another tranche of work comprises constructing an enclosed 600-seat show arena which may be awarded to more than one trade contractor.
A third deal involves prefabricating and installing various support and ancillary buildings
