We anticipate tendering work in Lots that will generally be in the range of £5.000 - £50,000.  The number of Lots is as yet unknown.
Commencement dates will be as soon as possible after contracts are awarded.  Time will be the essence of the contracts with full completion expected by the date agreed with the successful bidder.
