Wigan Council intends to procure Contractors to complete Improvement works to 7 High Rise Residential Blocks in Scholes Village, Wigan. The Works will include provision for upgrades to water mains, fire detection, lighting and small power additions.

  • Domestic Water Main Replacement
  • Fire Hose Removal
  • Enhancements to Lighting and Small Power additions
  • Fire Detection Upgrades
  • Smoke Ventilation to Stairwells
  • Replacement of internal Rainwater Pipes in Douglas House

It is intended to issue the Tender Documents in early Sept 2022 with a view to commencing the works around April 2023, with completion in April 2024. Contractors are invited to ‘register an interest’ via The Chest in accordance with Wigan Council Requirements.

The purpose of this exercise is to gauge the level of interest in this opportunity and make bidders aware of the contract size and type, so all responses are very much appreciated.

For the avoidance of doubt, this notice is for the purpose of conducting a market testing and does not formally begin a procurement process or constitute any commitment by Wigan Council to undertake any procurement exercise.

Furthermore, potential bidders will not be prejudiced by not responding to this market testing notification. Potential bidders must also note that a response to this notice does not guarantee an invitation to participate in this, or any future procurement that Wigan Council may conduct.


Any information disclosed in this process or any ancillary documentation or otherwise obtained from the Council or its advisers must be treated as confidential information and should not be disclosed to any third party or used in any manner, except as necessary in responding to this process.

The Council will, during this process, hold in as confidential information, commercially sensitive information provided by the Supplier.

Notwithstanding the forgoing provisions of this paragraph the Council shall be entitled to disclose such confidential information to its officers and employees, agents, and advisors as necessary in relation to this process or if required to do so by law.
