Bidders show interest in Stanmore rebuild
More than 100 interested representatives from the construction industry have attended a bidders open day at the RNOH's Stanmore site.
The event received a flurry of interest following an advertisement for a consortium that can design, build, service and fund the Stanmore Private Finance Initiative (PFI) project.
Steve Turner, PFI project director, said the turnout at the open day, which provided presentations about the PFI project, the services provided, the RNOH's aspirations for redevelopment along with Foundation Trust is very encouraging.
"We are now looking forward to the next stage which involves the bidders participating in a rigorous tendering process," he said.
The deadline for expressions of interest is 21 February 2011.
The Trust plans to select a preferred bidder in January 2013 with construction starting on site in mid 2013.
