BUSINESSES have the chance to work for Carmarthenshire County Council.

The council is offering a tender for businesses which specialise in property and associated works.

The council is looking for these businesses to join its Property Works Framework which will see the council appoint qualified contractors to provide property, maintenance, adaptations, building improvements and other associated works needed for both its housing and non-housing property portfolio.

The framework includes a range of value-banded and geographical lots for property works on housing and commercial properties. This will include responsive and small building works, planned works up to and over £150,000, voids, adaptations, electrical roofing, flooring, fencing and trade-specific lots.

There is also trade-specific lots for smaller contractors who specialise in trades like carpentry, bricklaying, rendering, painting and decorating, door and window installation, property cleaning and clearance and shed installation.

Councillor Alun Lenny, the council’s cabinet member with responsibility for procurement and frameworks, said: “Our property works framework presents a big opportunity for businesses that specialise in property and associated works to gain property, maintenance, adaptations and building improvements contracts with the county council.

“As a council, it was important for us to include a ‘trade-specific’ lot within the framework, as we want to encourage local, small and medium, businesses to apply for the framework as the money we will invest in infrastructure over the next three years would then penetrate deeper into the local economy.”

The Property Works Framework tender is now live, with a deadline of March, 25, 2024 for submissions.
