Overview

Whangarei District Council (Council) is going to the market for:
 CON21060 - Maintenance of playgrounds and skateparks

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.
Whangārei has experienced a rapid rise in population over the past 10 years and sustained growth is likely to continue. At the same time participation in outdoor recreation activities is growing. Being active is increasingly popular and the value activity has on our mental, physical and spiritual well-being is recognised

To support active recreation activities Council has 45 playgrounds, 7 skateparks and 25 shade sails around the district. The Town Basin and soon to be open destination playground at Pohe Island are high profile sites with high use. We also have smaller playgrounds in our suburbs and on the coast such as Ngunguru and Ruakaka.

All of these facilities are valued by the community, and we want them to be well maintained and safe. Once a year an independent playground audit is undertaken, and this can lead to a programme of work that is funded separately to the contract.

The Parks and Recreation department outsources most of the maintenance of the parks and recreation activity through a range of contracts covering the parks and garden, trees, tracks and walkways, coastal and park structures, playgrounds and skateparks, sports parks, litter and custodial services, and public toilets.

We are looking for a suitable experienced contractor to undertake maintenance of playgrounds and skateparks assets.
