Help us choose the right contractor for the 'build-only' contract 

We’re looking for two new volunteers to join the Chalcots Resident Procurement Panel to help us choose the best contractor for the 'build-only' major works project. You’ll be a part of evaluating the tenders and the contractor interviews to help us choose a contractor with a strong focus on resident engagement.

This is a really important role and we are looking for team players who can work with the existing panel members to help shape the future of your estate and make sure residents’ voices are heard in the procurement process.

You must be a resident living at the Chalcots Estate to apply, with good communication skills, the commitment to finding the best contractor for the works and able to volunteer an average of two days each month.

To apply, email Oonah (independent resident engagement advisor) at oonah.lacey@involvis.co.uk outlining why you would like to be involved and what experience you would bring to the panel.

Please read the role profile and Terms of Reference below before applying.

John Graham Construction appointed as contractor for the Blashford major works

The Council has appointed John Graham Construction as the contractor for the ‘design and build’ contract at Blashford.

Thank you to the Blashford TRA and the resident procurement panel who gave up their own time to make sure residents’ voices are heard throughout this process, and who have been invaluable in helping us to select the best contractor for Blashford.

John Graham Construction will be sending Blashford residents a letter to introduce themselves, with lots of opportunities for residents to meet the major works team and keep up to date with the progress of the project.

Procurement for Bray, Burnham, Dorney and Taplow

We have invited four contractors to tender for the ‘build-only’ contract for the four towers. The contractors asked the Council to extend the deadline to 8 October which has been agreed – this will make sure contractors have time to submit high quality tenders. The extension will not affect the date the works will start on site.

The chosen contractor will be appointed in December 2021. You may see staff on site with the contractors this month as they visit the estate to finalise their tenders.

You can move home with the Local Lettings Plan (LLP)

Any council tenant with a housing need can search and bid for another council home across Camden, but the LLP gives Chalcots tenants the highest priority to bid for empty homes when they become available on the Chalcots Estate.

Over the last few months, we have started preparing a number of empty properties on the estate, some have already been advertised and more will be available very soon.

We have recently changed how often we advertise homes – it is now twice a week, Monday to Wednesday and Friday to Sunday. There might not always be homes available on the estate but keep checking as we are adding homes as soon as they are ready.
