The package will be let to contractors that prequalify for the South West Wales Contractors Framework, which is mainly being set up for schools construction, but may include other public building and housing work.
The framework is part of Wales’ 21st Century Schools Programme, a joint plan drawn up by the assembly government and the Welsh Local Government Association.
Carmarthenshire County Council is handling the south west region framework on behalf of its local authority partners, Neath Port Talbot County Borough Council, City and County of Swansea and Pembrokeshire County Council. The councils intend to call-off individual school building and refurbishment jobs from the framework.
Lot 1: covering the whole region on project valued at £12m-plus – 3 contractors
Lot 2: covering Neath Port Talbot County Borough Council and City and County of Swansea. Project value £3.5m-£12m – 6 contractors
Lot 3: covering Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire. Project value £3.5m-£12m – 6 contractors
A contractors day will be held on 17 November to detail the councils’s plans.
Interested contractors have until 21 December to complete PQQS, which should be returned to David Phelps at Camarthen Council. Email: [email protected]
Bids for a similar £400m framework covering south east Wales are currently being assessed by Rhondda the Cynon Taf County Borough Council Procurement Unit.
The South East Wales Schools and Public Buildings Contractor Framework (SEWSCAP) has been divided into five lots based on contract size.
