Tender launch to boost Green Deal contractors

Hull CouncilHull City Council has launched the procurement process to appoint Green Deal partners to deliver energy efficiency improvements to thousands of properties across Hull.

Businesses are invited to become a partner that will deliver structural improvements and external solid wall insulation to approximately 3,250 council properties, alongside improvements to private sector properties either fully funded or through the use of a loan product.

Hull has recently launched a new, exciting and ambitious City Plan with the primary aim of creating 7,500 new jobs and improving income levels, health and skills.

This is an exciting opportunity for organisations to work with a City recently shortlisted as one of four contenders for the 2017 City of Culture.

Councillor Martin Mancey, Portfolio Holder for Energy City, said: “The procurement of the partner is part of the city’s wider City Plan objectives to become a green city as well as creating employment and learning opportunities.

“This is an excellent opportunity for a company to provide significant energy efficient improvements to homes that will reduce energy bills for residents, which in turn helps to tackle fuel poverty.”

The procurement opportunity is published in the Official Journal of the European Union Website TED (Tenders Electronic Daily) and YORtender website, the procurement portal of the Yorkshire and Humber regions.

Hull City Council has an agreement with the East Riding of Yorkshire Council which allows them to access the procured partner. This will widen the geographical area in which the Green Deal Partner could potentially deliver Green Deal measures.

The deadline to submit a completed Pre-Qualification Questionnaire is Wednesday 7 August at 5pm.

To support the process a Market Day for interested parties will take place on Wednesday 17 July at the Hull City Hall. Places are strictly limited and any interested contractors and building organisations should email regenerationteam@hullcc.gov.uk with name, job title, company address and contact telephone number.
