The Cabinet had before it a * report of the Group Manager for Corporate Property and Commercial Assets requesting the Cabinet to review the results of the Multi Storey Car Park (MSCP) Improvement works tender and to award the JCT minor works Building Contract to a contractor.
The Group Manager for Corporate Property and Commercial Assets outlined the contents of the report stating that the MSCP had had works identified for essential maintenance and improvement works. Some of the works were required for insurance purposes, this included but was not limited to increasing the height of the safety railings to meet current standards and that this work had been prioritised. The Property Services team were aware of the pending Premier Inn Project and given the scope of the works to construct the hotel it was sensible to hold back the improvement scheme until the construction works for the project had been completed. The detailed specification for work had incorporated a range of essential improvements which had gone out to tender; he informed the meeting that there had been 7 tenders returned.
Following consideration of the works to take place it was:
a) The JCT Minor Works Building Contract with Contractor’s Design 2016 Edition for the MSCP improvement works be awarded to supplier B;
b) Delegated authority be given to the Deputy Chief Executive (151) and the Cabinet Member for Housing and Property Services to agree on which Category 2 items as detailed on Part 2 Annex B should be included within the Contract award to supplier B, subject to ongoing budget authority after essential works have been concluded.
c) An additional £50k to the Capital project for 2019/20 as set at item 5.4. be approved.
