Tuesday 21st July 2021 – CARLOS LÓPEZ with Mike Smith
Xàbia Council has announced a public tender process to seek a construction company to take on a number of projects in the area of Urbanización Mar Azul (in the vicinity of Calle La Barraca in the Portitxol zone), works which must be undertaken in compliance with a court ruling that dates way back to 1991.
According to information published this Tuesday on the official contract bulletin platform, the total project has an estimated cost of just over 1.2 million euros (including IVA) with a maximum execution period of seven months. This investment will be funded by money provided by the promoter responsible for the Integrated Action Plan (PAI) at the time, a well-known Benitatxell company.
The project has been drawn up by local architect Vicente Castelló and includes creating kerbs and pavements on secondary roads, installing 173 lampposts to provide lighting in the area, and the construction of a sewage network which was provided for in the Partial Plan.
As in all tender assessment processes, a maximum of 90 of the 100 points available will be determined by the price offered to complete the works whilst the remaining 10 points will be determined by a reduction in the execution period of the project.
No local company has bid for social centre bathroom reform
The contract award committee has proposed that the Valencian construction company Blue Dec S.L. be awarded the contract to reform the bathrooms at the social centre, a project that went out to tender with an initial budget of 27,000 euros (including IVA), with the winning bid offering a reduction of 7,000 euros of this price.
Only three companies bid for the project – and none of them were from Xàbia or the surrounding region.
