Award of first stage tender for Tewin Road Depot


Exempt report of the Corporate Director (Resources, Environment and Cultural Services) on the appointment of the main contractor for the detailed design of the redevelopment of Tewin Road depot.


(1)        The Decision Taken




That the Cabinet agrees to award the first stage contract (known as the Pre Construction Service Agreement) to RG Carter (Cambridge) Limited at a contract sum of £114,342.50 as unanimously recommended by the Streetscene Mobilisation Board.


(2)        Reasons for the Decision


The Tewin Road depot needed to be upgraded for the new streetscene contracts and the Council was also working with Hertfordshire County Council to co-locate a Household Waste Recycling Centre onsite.  A joint planning application had been submitted at the end of November 2019 to be determined by the County Council in the coming months.


The Streetscence Mobilisation Board agreed to use a two stage procurement process for the appointment of a contractor to design the new Tewin Road depot.  At the last meeting of the Mobilisation Board, it was unanimously agreed to recommend to the Cabinet to appoint RG Carter for the first stage contract as the bidder with the highest scores on both quality and price.
