Construction firms in north Wales invited to tender for £270m schools work

Construction firms in north Wales are being given a glorious opportunity to build a strong portfolio of work over the coming years, after it was announced that some £270 million worth of projects have been put out to tender by local authorities.

The significant sum is being spent on schools in the area and councils are hoping to secure deals with contractors to carry out the projects. Jobs that have been made available for tender range in value from £4.35 million to more than £15 million, indicating there is something for every type of building company operating in the region.

Due to take place over a four-year framework, the £270 million will primarily come through the 21st Century Schools programme, although there will also be other public building developments that contribute to the sum.

A range of councils are involved and all will be hoping to sign deals with contractors at competitive prices. The local authorities that are due to oversee work on their schools include councils in Flintshire, Conwy, Denbighshire, Wrexham, Anglesey and Gwynedd.

Construction Enquirer explained that Lot 1 in the tender process will include projects worth between £4.35 million and £7.5 million, with six firms required to complete these tasks at a total spend of up to £50 million.

Lot 2 will include those jobs that are valued between £7.5 million and £15 million, and will also require six construction companies and attract expenditure in the region of £100 million. Finally, Lot 3 will be made up of those schemes costing more than £15 million, with three contractors required and spending set to go up to £120 million.

All interested firms have until September 27th to complete the initial documents and await an invitation to tender, with these scheduled to be sent out in early October.

Securing any of the contracts up for grabs from councils around north Wales could prove to be a vital step in the progress being made by any construction firm operating in the country at this time.
