The Customer

Sutton Housing Partnership (SHP) asked SEC to deliver a compliant and cost effective procurement of their next stage of roofing works.

Solution

We worked with SHP to determine that a direct award from SEC’s Internal and External Building Works framework would be the most suitable and cost affective solution.

SHP had an existing contract with Mulalley for new roof coverings that expired in the 2016/17 financial year.

The top ranked contractor under Lot 1: Major Refurbishments was Mulalley. This provided SHP with an opportunity for a quicker mobilisation period due to the continuity of contractor.

In depth pricing evaluations were developed and used in meetings between SHP and Mulalley to determine the cost comparison between the previous contract and the I&E Building Works framework.

Result

The difference between costs were evaluated as follows:

           Previous Contract:     £1,614,755.82

           New Contract:            £1,510,002.92

           Savings:                        £104,752.90

Following these discussions Sutton Housing Partnership entered into a contract with Mulalley based on a direct award from the I&E framework.
