By Scunthorpe Telegraph | Posted: 10 Oct 2018
Companies interested in winning a share of £150 million of highways and construction work with North Lincolnshire Council have been invited to a mid-tender supplier event.
The value of the jobs range from under £100 to up to £10 million, and includes disabled adaptations and roofing works, renewal of general building work, repairs and maintenance, plus road improvement works.
Businesses attending should by now have registered an interest to be on the local authority's Highways and Construction framework, following the initial call last month. Those who haven’t yet registered can still do so. They have until October 26, and can register at www.yortender.co.uk.
The drop-in style event, taking place between 9.30am and 3pm tomorrow (Thursday, October 11) at The Baths Hall will give those that have registered the opportunity to:
- Check Constructionline status and discuss Constructionline queries with a knowledgeable representative
- Understand the bidding process
- Ask questions via an enquiry form
There will also be a short presentation, repeated throughout the event that explains the application process.
Those wishing to attend should reserve their place on Eventbrite, indicating a preferred presentation time – 10am, 11am or 1pm.
It is expected that the council will, through a competitive bidding process, award the contracts in December 2018 ready to start work from April 2019.
Cllr Rob Waltham, leader of North Lincolnshire Council, said: “This is a great opportunity for local businesses to be in with a chance of securing low, medium or high value contracts to carry out highways and construction work for the council over the next four to six years.
“With work potentially worth £150 million on offer, this is not to be sniffed at and those lucky enough to be awarded one or more contracts, will be helping bring local jobs and training opportunities.”
