Media Release: Construction businesses wanted for housing projects with Aberdeenshire Council and Supplier Development Programme
Aberdeenshire Council is inviting local micro, small and medium sized businesses, including supported businesses and third sector organisations, to attend a free webinar with the Supplier Development Programme on Thursday, 30 June, to discuss upcoming contracts related to housing projects and its on-going Housing Improvement Programme (HIP).
Construction businesses can meet the "real" buyers at Aberdeenshire Council in the Housing Section, Property and Facilities Management Section, and the Shared Procurement Service during the online engagement event.
Housing improvement works will comprise of external and internal upgrades and energy efficient measures to council-owned homes as well as building new homes.
The main types of improvement works sought during HIP are upgrades to kitchens, bathrooms, heating systems, doors, windows, wall insulation (cavity and external), rewiring, re-roofing, dormer windows, communal door entry, and solar photovoltaic (PV) roof panels.
Open to all, the webinar will be of particular interest of businesses that provide joinery, plumbing, electrical or specialist services. Businesses will be able to ask the questions they have, and have them fully answered, during the online event.
Amanda Goncalves, Development Officer for the Supplier Development Programme, said:
"No business is too small to get involved in works related to the housing projects led by Aberdeenshire Council; sole traders are particularly welcome to come along to learn how they can do business locally.
"The Supplier Development Programme is working with our partners at Aberdeenshire Council to break down the tendering process into manageable steps, to ensure that bidding for contracts is as simple and straightforward as possible."
Talking Tenders with Aberdeenshire Council takes place on Thursday, 30 June, from 2:00pm-3:30pm.
