Decision Maker: Cabinet Member - Economy & Enterprise (Leader - Councillor Sean Fielding)
Decision status: Recommendations Approved
Is Key decision?: Yes
Is subject to call in?: Yes
The reason for this decision arises from the
need to continue the appointment of EWA architects to enable them:
to complete the design of the new heritage and arts centre (OMA) at
the former library on Union Street; complete the accompanying
off-site store at the Prince of Wales Industrial Estate; and cover
costs incurred in the close down of the Oldham Coliseum project
RESOLVED - That:
The Council appoints EWA via the Construction Impact Framework (CIF), to act as lead designer for the OMA and associated off-site store projects, with an allocated budget.
Option 1 – Do nothing and wait until a
direct appointment can be made by a new contractor.
Option 2 – Tender the OMA architectural services via OJEU.
Option 3 – Appoint EWA via the CIF Framework.
