Momentum builds on Quirindi Library redevelopment

Another momentous step has been taken towards the redevelopment of the Quirindi Library Precinct with Liverpool Plains Shire Council (LPSC) seeking Tender Submissions from construction contractors experienced in renovating commercial and community building facilities to undertake the project.

Tenders, which are being procured by open tender arrangements, are required to be submitted by 10am on Monday 19 October 2020 in accordance with the documents provided on Council’s Tenderlink portal which can be found at https://www.tenderlink.com/lpsc/,” said LPSC’s Mayor, Councillor Andrew Hope.

“A compulsory pre-tender briefing for interested contractors will be held on Thursday 1 October commencing at 9am at the Quirindi Library site. Council is encouraging local licensed tradies and local sub-contractors to attend the library at 9.45am to offer their trade services and to meet and greet with prospective principal contractors for the project.

“The project includes alterations, additions and refurbishment that require trade works such as earthworks, structural steel works, concreting, carpentry, roofing, flooring, plastering, glazing, landscaping plus the upgrade of electrical, mechanical, hydraulic and fire services,” he said.

“To get to this milestone, a team of engineers and technicians have worked tirelessly developing the plans to ensure the library redevelopment is well engineered utilising sustainable architecture to ensure it is more user friendly. In this regard, Council acknowledges the contribution of Hill Lockart Architects, W.J.Bryan Engineering, Marline Newcastle, G.J.Seib Pty Ltd and Council’s own staff.

“Council successfully secured funding through the NSW State Library, the Federal Government’s Drought Communities Program and the NSW Government’s Stronger Country Communities Program,” he continued.

For further information on this project contact Council’s engineering services on 02 6746 1755 during business hours or via email lpsc@lpsc.nsw.gov.au.

“The Tender contract will be awarded in November. The redevelopment is focused on attracting more users of all age groups. When completed the Quirindi Library Precinct will be an important community hub serving as a contemporary multi-purpose area with modern facilities and improved activity spaces,” Councillor Hope concluded.
