The University of Canterbury (UC) would like to establish preferred partnership arrangements with a small group of carpenters and/or building companies who have a flexible workforce, trusted work groups, proven quality and professional personnel.
Building and carpentry services in this instance refers to ad hoc repairs, maintenance and renovations of on-campus buildings and occasional refurbishments and maintenance of UC campus houses.

The intended panel will consist of:
- ‘One-stop-shop’ companies who have the ability to provide supervised multi trades, including all tools, equipment and product required to do the job
- Carpenters and/or building companies that can provide labour only for minor jobs of which UC can provide supervision and gear
- Carpenters and/or building companies that can complete as-built drawings
- Building companies that are happy to mix and match elements of the job to allow UC to complete certain components in-house

Engagement will be on an as-and-when required basis, some urgent call-outs may be required but this is infrequent in nature.

The University is looking for credible providers who have the capability, experience and infrastructure to deliver building and carpentry services. Respondents must have a team of appropriately qualified and experienced staff, with the capacity to be able to carry out planned and routine work in a timely and expedient manner. The providers must retain a consistent level of service, high quality workmanship, flexibility and value for money. Sustainability and low environmental impact are a key focus for the University.
