OD/17/81 Appoint B W for trenching

Ipswich Borough Council require to procure a contractor to undertake trench and cable ducting works along Princes St in preparation for a UKPN connection. This will facilitate the increased power demand for the Cornhill redevelopment.


Three companies were asked to quote for the works against the specification. Two companies declined to tender for the works. Brooks and Wood provided a quote to the value of £37,110.00. This price has been checked by an independent Quantity Surveyor and is deemed good value for money.
