This report presents the tenders received for extension and refurbishment of the changing room at Bath Lane Recreation Ground, together with the demolition of the existing club house facility and replacement of the grounds maintenance store.
As part of the open spaces improvement programme (as approved annually by the Executive) the Council is undertaking a project to improve the built facilities at the Bath Lane Recreation Ground.
Tenders have been received and it is recommended that a contract be awarded to Hampshire Partitioning Contracts in the sum of £464,270.76
The tenders are approximately 4% above the approved budget due to the increasingly buoyant construction market. In addition there is an extra cost of £20,000 which needs to be payable to Network Rail to allow scaffold to be erected on their land to allow work to the northern elevation of the building. Whilst the Council were aware of the need for Network Rail approval, the actual cost is significantly higher than anticipated.
Resolved that the Executive agrees:
(a) to award a contract to Hampshire Partitioning Contracts for the sum of £464,270.76 for the extension and refurbishment of the sports changing rooms at the Bath Lane Recreation Ground; and
(b) that the capital budget for the changing rooms element of the project be increased by £44,000 to a total of £444,000
