The London Borough of Lambeth has increased the estimated value of its recently advertised bathroom adaptation framework by nearly £50 million.
The three year framework was advertised last week with a value of £3.9m but published additional information today suggesting that it could be worth up to £52m.
The Borough cited expressions of interest from other London Boroughs as the reason for the amendment. The framework could now be extended by a further year and to as many as 10 other Boroughs.
A maximum of 20 firms and a minimum of 5 will be appointed to the agreement. The scope of works includes the supply and installation of shower formers, specialist baths, shower doors, shower water heaters, ventilation and lighting systems, and tiling.
The contractors will also have to carry out associated building work such as altering or upgrading plumbing, heating and electrical systems, floors, doors, windows, ceilings and walls.
Firms have until 17 February to submit pre-qualification questionnaires and will be invited to tender on 22 March.
