EOI period set to open for retirement and aged care providers at Philip Street Communities and Families Precinct
EOI period set to open for retirement and aged care providers at Philip Street Communities and Families Precinct.
From Saturday 2 May, retirement and aged care providers will be able to submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) to build, operate and maintain a facility within a portion of the overall site also containing the Philip Street Communities and Families Precinct.
Gladstone Regional Council is seeking Expressions of Interest before inviting written tenders, wishing to identify the facility options available from potential tenderers prior to making any commitment.
The EOI period opens on 2 May and submissions must be lodged electronically via LG Tender Box (www.lgtenderbox.com.au) by 5pm on Tuesday 28 July.
No EOI received by post, facsimile or email will be considered.
Gladstone Region Mayor Matt Burnett said a Development Permit is current over the subject site, including a Preliminary Approval Development Code which sets the development intent and assessment provisions for several precincts over the site.
“This Preliminary Approval allows for the development of a mix of use types within this portion of the site and provides an opportunity for a retirement and aged care facility be developed,” Councillor Burnett said.
“Expressions of Interest must address several evaluation criteria with weighting given in Quality Management, Environmental Management, Work Health and Safety Management, and Financial Capacity.
“We are seeking experienced aged care providers with a demonstrated capability and capacity for project delivery and operation.”
The Philip Street Communities and Families Precinct recently reached its first construction milestone with 14,000 cubic metres of dirt being cut, filled and compacted at the site.
