The project is part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and the contractor will be required to comply with all relevant EU Regulations and specifically the Branding and Publicity Guidelines required of an ERDF funded project.

The pre-offer ERDF conditions have been cleared and at the time of writing the Council is awaiting receipt of the funding agreement.

Works will include foundations, building envelope, internal partitions and fitting out, and MEP. Works to demolish and reconstruct an existing retaining wall will also be required in this area. The project will also deliver the extension and refurbishment of an existing switch room (Building 3) to BREEAM Very Good, with a new roof and solar PVs, totalling circa 4 35 m2 combined GIA. The contractor will need to allow for asbestos surveys, removals, and clearance testing as part of the refurbishment works.
