Summary of Decision

The Cabinet Member has approved the appointment of T&B (Contractors) Ltd (Companies House registration no, 01667869) to the contract for works to the Tresham Centre for a contract amount of £1,978,734 inclusive of VAT.


Reasons for Decision

The Disabled Resource service operate from part of the Tresham Centre and provide services for disabled children aged 5-18 years of age (the Short Breaks Service).  Up until September 2021, the remainder of the building was leased to another occupier who have terminated their lease.  Demand for the disabled children’s service has been increasing significantly and an opportunity therefore presents itself to expand the service into the entire building following completion of major works.  The service currently operate from several locations and consolidation at the Tresham Centre will provide greater efficiencies and a better service for users.


The second-stage negotiation has used the pricing criteria agreed in the original procurement and first stage agreement.  T&B (Contractors) Ltd have worked with their supply chain to secure quotations for each work package for the completed design.  The council has reviewed these proposals with advice and support from the Faithful + Gould Quantity Surveyor.  This review has concluded that value for money has been achieved and therefore recommended the Council to enter into the second stage Design & Build Agreement with T&B (Contractors) Ltd to deliver the works.
