Seymour Centre – Appointment of a Contractor under a Pre-Construction Services Agreement

Decision Maker: Cabinet Member for Finance and Council Reform

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


Summary of Decision

The Cabinet Member has agreed to the contract award appointment of Wilmott Dixon Construction Ltd as the preferred contractor for the Seymour Centre project to deliver pre-contract services in respect of the first stage of a two stage design and build construction works. 


Reason for Decision

A compliant and comprehensive tender process has been completed to test the market and to identify the contractor best suited to deliver the services required.  To take a different approach or not appoint would mean the scheme stalling.  The completion date would be seriously impacted and the cost would increase.  This appointment is therefore critical for maintaining the programme and delivering the project to quality and cost.
