North Lincolnshire Council invites tenders for contracts worth £20m

Cllr Rob Waltham

North Lincolnshire Council is inviting tenders for work worth over £20m on a series of major construction and highways contracts.

The council has published a tender inviting businesses to be on the framework of approved contractors for when highways and construction jobs come up.

Project values range from £1m to £10m, and the work will range from general building and highway maintenance work such as road resurfacing and repairs, disabled adaptations to private sector homes, and other building work. There will be specific lots for disabled facilities and roofing works.

The work will be for a four-year period, with a possible two-year extension. Businesses have six weeks to apply to be on the list through www.yortender.co.uk.

It is expected that the council will, through a competitive bidding process, award the contracts in December this year ready to start work from next April.

North Lincolnshire Council leader Rob Waltham told Business Link: “This is a fantastic opportunity for local businesses to tender for the work. We are not talking about a few million pounds – these are contracts potentially worth in excess of £20m.

“We are talking about boosting economic growth by creating jobs and training opportunities and improving buildings to make them more accessible and well maintained.

“We want to build long-term partnerships with key contractors who will help deliver first-class public services to the people of North Lincolnshire.

“Providing value for money is key and the tender process will enable a robust and fair way to determine who wins these crucial contracts for council work.”
