Thurrock Council put out tender for £300 million housing contract

THURROCK Council is looking for contractors to carry-out £300m of housing work over the next four years.

The work is a mixture of new-build and refurbishment split into four lots reports ConstructionEnquirer.

The new-build work will be worth around £200m and will range from small “infill” sites of 2-4 properties to major flat developments of 100 units.

Refurbishment work will make up the rest of the contract to bring properties across the region to “beyond decency” standard.

The four lots up for grabs are:

Lot 1a – Main Contractors – Refurbishment Works with a construction value of less than £2m.

Lot 1b – Main Contractors – Refurbishment Works with a construction value of more than £2m

Lot 1c – Main Contractors – New Build Works with a construction value of less than £5m

Lot 1d – Main Contractors – New Build Works with a construction value of more than £5 m.

  1. It would be nice to hear how the council are going to fund nearly £400 million of capital expenditure announced so far this year. How long that is spread over and when they expect all this to begin. It sounds to me like scorched Earth again. Will the comrade be leaving a note, sorry all the money’s gone. Good luck.

  2. Sounds good to me, split work down so a) local firms have a chance at the smaller bundles b) specialists focus on their particular area. Lets hope TC client management is up to it! Business case for more council houses is proven. At long last, we can get building homes again.

  3. Why doesn’t the Council bring this back ‘in house’ so the people doing the work are fully accountable. Why tender things out all the time.
