Tender price well under ORC estimate

Lund South Construction has won the tender to build the Otago Regional Council's new council chamber and civil defence headquarters.

The company was involved in the construction of the Forsyth Barr Stadium, redevelopment of Toitu Otago Settlers Museum entrance and the new South Dunedin Countdown.

Chairman Stephen Woodhead said the $615,000 tender price was significantly under the council's estimate of nearly $1 million.

Corporate Services director Wayne Scott said five tenders had been received and all were competitive.

The lowest conforming tender was accepted for the project, he said.

Lund would soon take possession of the site with the aim of completing the project by March 31.

The company also won the contract for the flood protection work on the Water of the Leith which had begun.
