In September 2019 Cabinet approved concept
designs and project proposals for the Starlings site in Dovercourt
Town Centre and the demolition of the two storey decked carpark on
Milton Road (the site to be used subsequently for residential
development), and allocated funding to secure delivery.
In March 2020 it was determined that the necessary site investigations had been concluded to the Council's satisfaction and that the project could proceed to delivery.
In July 2020 officers determined to issue an Invitation to Tender (ITT) in order to secure the professional services required to progress the design and demolition methodology for the Starlings site and Milton Road Car Park sites, and to oversee the construction and demolition associated with these sites through to completion.
The closing date for tenders was 5th August 2020. The ITT was posted on Contracts Finder and in addition seven potential contractors were alerted to the work.
This ITT process yielded three tender submissions.
These tenders were assessed and evaluated in accordance with the published ITT criteria, and points awarded for each tender (against each of the criterion).
The Tender evaluation resulted in the selection and appointment (subject to contract) of Richard Jackson Ltd.
