EOI period for retirement and aged care providers at Philip Street Communities and Families Precinct is closing soon
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 Expression of Interest (EOI) period for retirement and aged care providers to build, operate and maintain a facility within a portion of the overall site also containing the Philip Street Communities and Families Precinct, will close later this month.
The EOI period opened 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 Acting Mayor Kahn Goodluck said a Development Permit is current over the subject site, including a Preliminary Approval 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 Goodluck 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.”
Construction at the Philip Street Communities and Families Precinct commenced in January 2020, with the first ‘cut to fill’ milestone completed in April.
The Precinct passed another milestone last month with the competition of the ‘stormwater culverts and structures’ milestone.
The first stage of the Philip Street Communities and Families Precinct is due for completion by June 2021.
