Worthing Community Hub Award of Contract OKD12 20/21

Decision Maker: Executive Director Place Services

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: Yes


The Community Hubs Strategy aims to combine services ‘under one community roof’ for the benefit of our residents, safeguarding access to preventive services whilst making the best use of County Council assets to provide existing and new services in fewer, more cost-effective buildings.


This decision paper recommends the Executive Director Place services to award a contract to build a community hub in Worthing Library by integrating registration services, children and family and youth services into the hub following a comprehensive tender process.


This approach builds on the Cabinet Member decision taken in May 2019 (Reference report SSC01 19/20) to approve the allocation of £3.058m from the provision in the Capital Programme to deliver the Worthing Community Hub. This includes the commencement of the procurement for the fit out and maintenance works to the most economically advantageous bid in accordance with the Council’s Standing Orders on Procurement and Contracts.



The Executive Director Place Services has approved:


1)   the award of the construction contract to deliver the Worthing Community Hub to Logan Construction Limited for a contract period of 6 months commencing from June 2020 at a value of £1,441,957; and


2)   reduce the provision in the Capital Programme to deliver the Worthing community hub by £661,711 in line with the variance between the pre-tender estimate for the construction works plus 5% construction contingency and Logan Construction Limited’s tender.
