Interested companies should therefore note that the proposed framework agreements will only be entered into in the event that the transfer of ownership takes place.
Plymouth Community Homes are seeking expressions of interest from suitably qualified and highly experienced contractors for the delivery of their major investment works programme. Interested companies should have a strong track record of delivering best practice on similar contracts and be able to pro-actively help Plymouth Community Homes in delivering its "green agenda" within the communities in which it will operate. The works programme will comprise the installation of replacement kitchens and bathrooms and will include all associated wiring, plumbing, services, decoration, general repairs and refurbishment as necessary Plymouth Community Homes are seeking to appoint up to four (4) framework contractors to a five (5) year framework agreement.
Contractors should note that call-offs may last beyond the length of the framework agreement itself.
