Warwickshire-based AR Demolition is to be awarded the contract to demolish the former Glades Leisure Centre in Kidderminster.
More than 20 bids were submitted to Wyre Forest District Council as part of the legal tendering process. All bids were independently evaluated by Savills on behalf of the council with AR Demolition’s scoring the highest.
The council is now completing legalities to formally appoint them as the contractor to undertake the demolition so work can start on site as quickly as possible.
Cabinet member for Planning and Regeneration Councillor Ian Hardiman said:
“We have run a very competitive tender process which resulted in 20 tender submissions being made. With such a competitive process we can guarantee that the residents of the district have got the best value for money possible.
“We will be working quickly now to complete the paperwork to formally appoint AR Demolition and hope to see them on site very shortly. At the same time we will continue to work with our consultants, Savills, to promote the site as an exciting redevelopment opportunity.”
