A variation to the JF Hunt demolition contract is recommended together with an approval to spend £961k on Phase 2 related demolition works.


1.     Recommendations


1.1. This report seeks approval for:

·         A contract variation that enables additional works packages to be delivered under the JF Hunt demolition contract. The details of which are set out in Exempt Appendix 1.;

·         Additional demolition and works spend on Phase 1 totalling £1.652m and bringing total spend to £4.990m on Phase 1 and utilising £683k of project contingency; and

·         Accelerated Phase 2 demolition spend of £961k.



2.     Reasons for Decision 


2.1. The approvals will enable the Council to have the ability for additional site enabling works packages to be commissioned through the demolition contract therefore providing greater flexibility and potential mitigations for any potential delays with the main works provision on future phases and also enabling packages to be priced and competed between JF Hunt and the main works contractor.
