Awarded Status

No Winner We received no response to the RFT but did have advise that one contractor was pricing the project but withdrew near the end because they never got responses from some key subcontractors. We sought and were granted a procurement exemption to negotiate direct with the supplier (MB Brown Ltd) to negotiate a price. The price was evaluated by an independent QS and deemed to be a fair price reflective of the current market. We have awarded the contract to MB Brown. The price was in the $150 - $180 k price range as expected
