Subbies sought for south west police projects

The winners of a Somerset police PFI are holding an event for subcontractors that want to take part in the project.

Miller Construction and Cofley, which are part of the Blue Light Partnership consortium, want to meet subcontractors interested in working on the £80 million Avon and Somerset Police Accommodation PFI project.

Subcontractors with experience working on medium to large sized projects are invited to the event at Hilton Bristol Hotel, Woodlands Lane, Bradley Stoke, Bristol starting at 9.30am on 13 June. To register email

This will be the third event the PFI consortium has held to find local subcontractors.

Kevin Dickson, south west area director of Miller Construction, said:  “The open days are providing us with the opportunity to meet with potential local sub-contractors who will work with us to deliver the four contracts within this project, which is proving to be a worthwhile experience. 

“Attendance at the events has been high as has the calibre of companies we have met to date.  We look forward to welcoming sub-contractors from the area that we are still to meet.”

The PFI covers new buildings in Patchway, Keynsham, and Portishead including a firearms training centre, custody and crime investigation centres, a police station and enquiry centre.
