Councillor Tony Smith presented a report by the Director of Children’s Services that advised the Cabinet of the outcome of the tender process for works to Somerville Primary School, to remove six poor quality mobile classrooms and re-provide accommodation within the main school building.  The report sought the Cabinet’s agreement to the proposal to accept the lowest tender for the work required, submitted by Conlon Construction Ltd. 


Councillor Tony Smith told the Cabinet that this was a good example of the excellent work carried out by the Council’s Officers.


Councillor Phil Davies warmly welcomed the report and informed that this work would significantly enhance the facilities for the School.




(1)  the contractor who submitted the lowest tender, as detailed above, be accepted as the Council’s ‘preferred contractor’; and


(2)  the Head of Legal and Member Services be authorised to execute an appropriate construction contract with the preferred constructor, in due course, subject to him checking this contactor’s tender submission and the contractor developing a satisfactory Health and Safety Plan.
