Decision details

North Magazine Earthworks / Plot Raising (Contract Variation)

Decision Maker: Director of Economy and Place (Historic)

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


The additional works are an extension of existing activities contained within the initial tender brief (i.e. – purchase of material; levelling; compaction). The use of a separate contractor would be highly impractical and inevitably incur additional/duplicate preliminaries, mobilisation and site set up costs. There would also be additional health and safety / project management implications to consider, in attempting to manage / coordinate two contractors within a limited working space.
The opportunity was advertised as an open procurement exercise via pro-contract for a period of three of 3 weeks. Of the responses received, Owen Pell Ltd scored highest against both cost and quality
