Local Sub-Contractors Interested in £80m PFI Project to Final Meet the Buyer event Welcomed by Blue Light Partnership

As part of the Blue Light Partnership consortium, Miller Construction and Cofley, is extending a final invitation to subcontractors based in the Somerset and Avon area to an open day to find out more about becoming involved in the £80 million Avon and Somerset Police Accommodation PFI Project, following the success of the last three events.

Subcontractors with experience working on medium to large sized projects are invited to attend the Fry Club & Conference Centre, Somerdale, Keynsham, Bristol BS31 2AU on Wednesday 11th July, 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 1pm there will be an opportunity for suppliers to speak with representatives from the Blue Light Partnership to get more information about the construction and facilities management project.

Kevin Dickson of Miller Construction, said: “This is our final Meet the Buyer event and we are pleased to welcome local subcontractors, who have an interest in working with us on the Avon and Somerset PFI Project, to meet with us and find out more about the four contracts within this project.

“The open days have proved to be a huge success and we would like to thank those who have already attended one of our events, the calibre of companies we have met to date has been high. We look forward to welcoming sub-contractors from the area that we are still to meet.”

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.
