The Oban Times - - Business -

THE STORNOWAY Trust and Comhairle nan Eilean Siar have pre­pared ten­der doc­u­ments for the cap­i­tal works el­e­ments of the Cas­tle Grounds Re­gen­er­a­tion Project.

A fu­ture con­tract op­por­tu­nity no­tice will be pub­lished and it is an­tic­i­pated ten­der doc­u­men­ta­tion will be pub­lished on the Pub­lic Con­tracts Scot­land web­site this week.

An in­for­ma­tion day and site visit for po­ten­tial con­trac­tors will be held on Thurs­day June 29.

The cap­i­tal works will be split into two con­tracts, one re­lat­ing to the work in the grounds and one for the restora­tion of build­ings.

The ground works have an es­ti­mated value £2.7 mil­lion and will in­clude restora­tion of the for­mer pri­vate gar­dens, his­toric fea­tures and plant­ing schemes, drainage, works to paths and new signs within the grounds.

The build­ing works have an es­ti­mated value of £450,000 and pri­mar­ily com­prise the re­pair and restora­tion of the Boat­man’s Tower and the Porters Lodge.

It is hoped there will be in­ter­est in th­ese con­tracts from lo­cal sup­pli­ers as well as those based fur­ther afield.

Stornoway Trust chair­man Calum Maclean urged busi­nesses to take a close look at the op­por­tu­ni­ties and re­quire­ments.

‘ While there are her­itage el­e­ments to both con­tracts, this can be ef­fec­tively de­liv­ered ei­ther by the main con­trac­tor or through an ef­fec­tive sub- con­tract­ing ar­range­ment.

‘We have framed the ten­der doc­u­men­ta­tion in such a way that ei­ther a spe­cial­ist or gen­er­al­ist con­trac­tor could take the lead and sub­mit a ten­der sub­mis­sion.’
