Whangarei District Council (Council) is going to the market for:
- Pensioner Housing Grounds Maintenance
The process will be a two-staged open market process:
- Registration of Interest (ROI)
- Request for Proposal (RFP)
This ROI is the first formal step in the process and is intended to be of minimal effort for respondents and allow the Council to create a short list of suppliers to invite to enter the RFP process.
This procurement is for 3-year maintenance contract for all grounds at the Whangarei District Council’s 16 Pensioner Housing Villages. Currently a contractor maintains the grounds, these include:
• Lawn mowing,
• Litter removal,
• Weed management,
• Garden maintenance,
• Hedge and shrub maintenance and
• Any other ground works as required.
Having an experienced team to maintain the grounds offers a number of benefits. These services reduce litter and unwanted landscaping debris while preserving the property and increasing visual appeal for residents and general public.
The presence of litter on the grounds have a tendency to attract unwanted pests like rats and cockroaches along with scavengers like rats. These pests will wreak havoc on the interior and exterior of the pensioner villagers. Felled trees and hedges not only are unattractive safety risks to persons, but they can cause roof and siding damage when not attended to properly. Experienced grounds service staff can also help spot any potential hazards before they become major issues, making their services invaluable. A grounds maintenance service keeps the pensioner villagers looking tidy year-round. This helps promote positive reputation for the Council.
