Approval is granted to award Bloom Demolition & Excavation Ltd. the contract for the Demolition of Various Council Properties at the rates set out in tender ref: NEDDC/00000207/2020
Bloom Demolition & Excavation Ltd. are recommended to be awarded the contract as the most economically advantageous tender as required by PART 4 SECTION 10.1.

Reasons for the decision:

As per Cabinet minute number 78 of 27th June 2018, seven properties at Pine View, Clay Cross were approved for demolition as part of the refurbishment of the site. Cabinet Minute 724 of 9th May 2018 approves the demolition of 14-16 High Street Apperknowle and 10-12 Nether Avenue, Killamarsh. The Council’s AMG agreed, on the 29th October 2019, to the demolition of seven garages at Malthouse Lane, Ashover. All properties were deemed to be beyond economical repair.
In accordance with the Council’s Constitution PART 4 - CONTRACT RULES SECTION 5.5; The contract was advertised as an open tender via the council’s Procurement section. There were five returns.

Alternative options considered:

Award the contract to one of the other companies who submitted a higher priced RFQ. This would result in North East Derbyshire District Council paying more for the Demolition of Various Council Properties and not meeting best value.
Not enter into a contract for the service. This would mean that the demolitions could not be carried out, the redevelopment of Pine View would remain incomplete and the properties would be a further liability to North East Derbyshire District Council.
