Meet the Buyer: Open Day for Local Sub-Contractors Interested in £80m PFI Project

Miller Construction and Cofely, as part of the Blue Light Partnership consortium is extending an invitation to subcontractors based in the Somerset and Avon area to an open day to find out more about becoming involved in the £80m Avon and Somerset Police Accommodation PFI Project.

Subcontractors with experience working on medium to large sized projects are invited to attend The Exchange, Express Park, Bristol Road, Bridgwater, TA6 4RR on Wednesday 23rd May, for the opportunity to find out more about the projects. The day will commence at 9.30am with registration and light refreshments and will be followed by a presentation from Blue Light Partnership at 10am. Between 11am and 12.30pm there will be an opportunity for suppliers to speak with representatives from the Blue Light Partnership to get more information on the construction and facilities management project.

For those who are unable to attend the morning session, the afternoon session will commence at 1pm and finish at 3.30pm. Interested parties are requested to  register their details and advise which session they wish to attend.

Kevin Dickson of Miller Construction, said: “This is the second open day we have held in a bid to find local sub-contractors to work with us on the Avon and Somerset PFI Project. We are keen to establish interest from local companies with the capabilities and expertise to work with us to deliver the four contracts within this project.”

The Avon and Somerset Police Accommodation PFI Project includes Somerset’s Operations Base which will be home to a Custody and Crime Investigation Centre, Specialist Operations and an Enquiry Office; a Custody and Crime Investigation Centre and Police Station in Patchway; a Custody and Crime Investigation Centre in Keynsham and a Tri-force Indoor Firearms Training Centre for Avon and Somerset, Wiltshire and Gloucestershire police forces, near Portishead.

The event will enable Blue Light Partnership to identify potential local resources which will in turn deliver economic and sustainable benefits for the local community.
