Builders’ bids opened for Big Build


A KEY milestone was reached on 6 September for the £2 million Big Build project when tenders for the work submitted by construction firms were opened at the home.

Professionals from quantity surveyors Colin Smith Partnership and BDK Architects were joined by the home’s chairman Jim Hopley and general manager David Lord to open the bids for work that will extend and refurbish the home. The 52 week contact is due to start soon and successful tenderers will be announced within days.

There will be regular updates on the work as the project progresses.
