Third call for Somerset & Avon subbies

7 Jun 12 A third open day is being held for Avon and Somerset subcontractors interested in getting involved in the local £80m police accommodation PFI project.

The main contractors on the job, the Blue Light Partnership consortium of Miller Construction and Cofley, are holding the event in Bristol next week. It follows a similar event in Bridgwater last month.

Subcontractors with experience working on medium to large sized projects are invited to attend the Hilton Bristol Hotel, Woodlands Lane, Bradley Stoke, Bristol, BS32 4JF on Wednesday 13 June to find out more about the works. Interested parties are requested to email to register their details.

Kevin Dickson of Miller Construction, said: “We are pleased to be able to welcome local subcontractors to our third Meet the Buyer event, who have an interest in working with us on the Avon and Somerset PFI Project.  Last month’s event in Bridgwater was a huge success and we would like to thank everyone who attended and registered their interest with us.

“The open days are providing us with the opportunity to meet with potential local sub-contractors who will work with us to deliver the four contracts within this project, which is proving to be a worthwhile experience.  Attendance at the events has been high as has the calibre of companies we have met to date.  We look forward to welcoming sub-contractors from the area that we are still to meet.”

The Avon and Somerset police accommodation PFI project includes Somerset’s operations base which will be home to a custody and crime investigation centre, specialist operations and an enquiry office; a custody and crime Investigation centre and Police Station in Patchway; a custody and crime investigation centre in Keynsham and a tri-force indoor firearms training centre for Avon and Somerset, Wiltshire and Gloucestershire police forces, near Portishead.
