Safe and Warm Upgrade Scheme - Pattison Street - Scheme Update

Decision Maker: Executive

Decision status: Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: Yes


To consider a request for a number of additional works to be included on properties at Pattison Street above the original tender sum.


Executive considered the report of the Portfolio Holder – Housing regarding pre-contract variations which had increased the contract value for the Safe and Warm Upgrade Scheme at Pattison Street, compared to the tender received which was originally approved by Executive in February 2020.


The works had been awarded to the contractor Matthews & Tannert Ltd. The Client (Housing Services) had requested that identified essential works be undertaken during the scheme in addition to the original tender specification.


Moved by Councillor Sandra Peake and seconded by Councillor Duncan McGregor

RESOLVED - That the Contract entered into with Matthews & Tannert Ltd be for the revised sum of £660,485.70.



The additional works were more cost effective than returning in the near future and ensured that the tenants would not be disrupted again nor would they incur substantial redecoration costs as each room would be affected during the required electrical rewire to the flat.      



The alternative of deferring the rewire works was rejected as it would have incurred additional and repeated costs both to the Council and the tenants, and would have led to tenants enduring substantial disruption and upset twice in a relatively short period.
