Hampshire County Council invites applications from suitably experienced organisations who wish to be considered for selection to tender for Lock Gates for the Basingstoke Canal.
Please note under Section II 1.2), Type of contract and location of works, place of delivery or of performance — this type of contract is Works however this tender exercise does not follow the EU time-scales designated for Works as the value of this framework agreement is set below the EU threshold for Works.
The Basingstoke Canal Authority (BCA) (a local Authority partnership hosted by Hampshire County Council) (HCC) manages the Basingstoke Canal for HCC and Surrey County Council (SCC) — the owners of the waterway since 1976.
The BCA was formed in 1990 to manage the restored waterway and initially continued to build the lock gates themselves ‘in house’. In the early 1990s changes in staffing and the cessation of the ‘job creation’ Apprentices’ Scheme led to lock gates being procured externally from specialist suppliers.
All lock gates are bespoke, each lock chamber is unique and can vary considerably and is not necessarily symmetrical, or uniform in width, height or batter. As part of the contract, it is the Supplier’s responsibility to visit each site and take full and sufficient measurements to enable them to fabricate the specified pair of gates to fit the chamber, forming a good seal with each other and the cill beam.
The Framework is due to commence 5.9.2016 and will be for a period of 2 years with the option to extend by a further 2 years in annual increments.
