This was an initial consultation before any designs have been carried out and the intention was to establish priorities.We looked at:The podium between Crescent House and Great Arthur HouseThe access to the leisure centreThe terrace behind Hatfield HouseThe area around the…See More

"To be fair double glazing was unknown when the Estate was built and didn’t become common practice until the 1980s. The metal frames are similar in size to W20 steel window sections (Crittall  type windows)  that were widely used at…"

Concrete Repairs

I got a notice about the cost of concrete repairs this morning. The letter raises the following issues:1. Why Keepmoat were selected when they were over three times more expensive than the other tender. The letter says that this was based on quality but no indication is given how this was evaluated and provided that the specification was tightly written there should be little difference in quality.2. Why there were only two tenders. When there is such a big disparity in prices this is not…See More

Paul Drinkwater replied to Tim Godsmark's discussion Concrete Repairs
"Agree. I've asked why there has been a failure to get more than two responses, especially if there are such concerns about one of them. I'd certainly not get away with explaining this to my board!"

Paul Lincoln replied to Tim Godsmark's discussion Concrete Repairs
"Their response is not good enough.  There are many companies who can do this work. Keepmoat is now two years behind schedule on Great Arthur House. Keepmoat has on its board a member of common council and should not therefore be invited to…"

Paul Drinkwater replied to Tim Godsmark's discussion Concrete Repairs
"I wrote to Dr Downing expressing concern at the fact there were just two quotes with costs seemingly at extremes, and that the contract is to be awarded to a company quoting 300% higher with whom CoL already has a relationship. His response…"

Charles Humphries replied to Tim Godsmark's discussion Concrete Repairs
"In my experience when you only get two tenders and they are so far apart, you have to go back out and re-tender to establish the correct price. Am I right in thinking that the concrete repair works are being done as part of the (overdue)…"

Paul Lincoln replied to Tim Godsmark's discussion Concrete Repairs
"I am very worried about this.  Not least because this is the first of a series of major costs that we will be facing. I cannot understand why so few firms tendered. It would be usual to long list to six or seven and short list to three or…"

David Graves (your Alderman) replied to Tim Godsmark's discussion Concrete Repairs
