Bwthyn y Ddôl Update

Contract to design and build Children’s Residential Assessment Unit to go out to tender.

Earlier this year, the contractor selected for the project entered into administration.

In September (14/09/21), Conwy’s Cabinet resolved to undertake another design and build procurement, via an open tender on Sell2Wales, to find a new principal contractor for the work.

The Ground Investigation Survey has been carried out and the results used to inform the new tender.

The contract will go out to tender this month (December), enabling a new contractor to start on site in spring 2022.

Cllr Louise Emery, Deputy Leader, said: “I fully support restarting the procurement process with the extended timeline and our own ground investigation report. This will offer best value for the project and hopefully we’ll receive a number of contractors’ bids to get this project moving again.”

Cllr Cheryl Carlisle, Cabinet Member for Social Care and Safeguarding said: “This is such an exciting and worthwhile project, we very much hope we’ll be able to appoint a new contractor as soon as possible in the New Year.”

The Bwthyn y Ddôl project is a partnership between Conwy County Borough Council, Denbighshire County Council and Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board.

The project is funded through the Welsh Government Integrated Care Fund (ICF).

Welsh Government have supported the extension to the spend timescales of March 2023 on the understanding that the contract is awarded by March 2022.
