Paint Inspection Ltd awarded 5 year contract with Crossrail for the welding/coating technical services for the western region. Paint Inspection Ltd successful award of the Crossrail welding and coating package for the western region shows how far we have come over the last 3 years.
The PQQ process started back in 2012 and involved a very detailed pre-qualification and review process by Crossrail, at the time just being at this stage alongside some of the major players within the industry meant Paint Inspection has come a long way. Successful completion of the PQQ and confirmation that we were would be invited to the tender process meant that our hard work on our quality and health and safety processes had paid off. Basically we had been whittled into the final six.
The next stage of the process was completion of the ITT along with submission of our project team and rates/prices. This process started in the spring with a tender period of 6 weeks, our final push to submit a complete package was done and the nail biting few weeks began waiting for the final contract award. Finally in July confirmation was received that two companies had been awarded the contract with one having the eastern region and the other western region – Paint Inspection Ltd had been awarded the western region.
After months of hard work all our efforts had paid off and in the process beating off some of the major consultants in the country – we now look forward in working with the Crossrail project team until 2018.
Paint Inspection Ltd awarded the Grade II listed Crook O’Lune bridge to provided full time Coating Inspection. We were awarded this contract back in May with the project starting at the end of July, whilst it is a short programme with completion by October this Grade II listed structure requires experience all round to bring the project within programme and to specification. Paint Inspection Ltd have built up a good working relationship with LCC on the Crook O’Lune and have further picked up other structures with repainting maintenance programmes for Lancashire. We look forward to continuing a working partnership to protect the Councils assets.
