North London Waste Authority (NLWA), responsible for the disposal of waste, is seeking up to three contractors for an overhaul of the Edmonton EcoPark infrastructure.
For this infrastructure upgrade, which is worth up to $13.6m (£10m), NLWA is prioritising contractors located in North London or nearby.
The finalised contractors will be tasked with the construction and commissioning of the civil infrastructure, to enable the delivery of the North London Heat and Power Project (NLHPP).
NLHPP will provide a new sustainable waste hub in Edmonton with recycling and waste management facilities.
The project is said to have already created employment opportunities for people living in the region and forms part of Enfield’s ongoing regeneration.
Besides, it is part of Enfield Council’s plans to support high-tech industries in Edmonton.
North London-based contractors having the required experience and expertise have been encouraged to respond to the procurement.
The finalised contractors will be responsible for site investigations to verify the location of services and underground obstructions.
Contractors will also be responsible for improvements to road and pedestrian accesses to allow EcoPark’s functioning.
Furthermore, the scope of work includes landscaping restoration of soft verges and footpaths around the EcoPark.
NLWA will focus on attaining 25% local employment and 10% local expenditure.
