Sign up to Government register of construction contractors
Construction companies interested in carrying out work for the council can apply to sign up to be considered for future projects.
Wirral Council will be attending the Constructionline ‘Meet the Buyer Event’ to encourage construction companies to apply to join a register of suppliers.
Constructionline, owned by the Department of Trade and Industry, is the government-approved register of pre-qualified construction contractors. Any invitations to tender for Wirral Council construction contracts are sent to between six and nine firms, chosen from a randomly produced short-list from those businesses registered with Constructionline.
Constructionline has been developed to cutting the amount of duplication in the construction industry pre-qualification process.
By joining Constructionline, construction related companies will have to satisfy the basic pre-qualification requirements. This means accepted companies will only need to submit their Constructionline registration number and any project-specific details to pre-qualify for contracts.
In 2013 Wirral Council is likely to be procuring various construction works in excess of £10m. The council is particularly seeking suppliers with the following trades: Building General; Building Finishes; Civil Engineering.
Meet the Buyer takes place on Tuesday 26th February in the Bridge Suite, Stobart Stadium, Lowerhouse Lane, Widnes, WA8 7DZ, from 9am to 3pm and is free to attend – just drop in.
