The focus of this project will be the former Cornish Studies Library level of the Cornwall Centre. The Town Council have commissioned local architects to create plans and drawings for the new layout; copies of which are included as an annex to this Invitation to Tender, along with a simple 2D CAD layout and explanatory notes of the works required. All potential bidders are strongly advised to arrange a site visit prior to final submission.

All submissions should be of sufficient detail, with regard to a breakdown of tasks and costs, to enable a fair and considered comparison of all tenders received. Tenders for specialist tasks e.g. roofing work, electrical works, plumbing etc. will be considered alongside submissions for the entire refurbishment project.

In order to assist with this requirement an outline Schedule of Works should be submitted by bidders to break down the costs and timeline for the project, identifying any issues for each stage and omitting any elements of the project beyond their expertise.

The invitation to quote will close at 1700 on Thursday 31st October 2019, by which time bidders will need to submit their Best and Final Offer for review by the Town Council, with the intention being that all bidders are informed of the decision on or before Friday 8th November 2019. Submissions can be made in hard copy or electronic format with all information kept Confidential until the time of the assessment and marking by the designated Council Member(s) and Officer.
