Four contractors have made it through from 19 interested bidders to the final tender stage to become Hull’s Green Deal, ECO and energy efficiency works partner.

Bullock Construction, Henry Boot Construction, Wates Living Space and Willmott Dixon Energy Services will go through to the final tender stage to win the contract.

The deal, estimated to be worth between £20m and £60m, includes delivering solid wall insulation and structural improvement to around 3,600 Hull council homes plus more homes on the boundary with East Riding of Yorkshire Council and improvements to private homes paid for through loans or private funding.

The council said 19 firms had initially expressed an interest in the deal.

Final stage tenders will be submitted in early 2014, and the contract is expected to be awarded in March 2014.

Councillor Martin Mancey, Hull City Council’s portfolio holder for Energy City, said: “This is an exciting time for Hull with the recently announced City Plan with the primary aim of creating 7,500 new jobs, improving income levels, health and skills as well as becoming an Energy City . 

“We hope the four companies will submit high quality tenders and we look forward to awarding the contract next spring to a business that will to deliver energy efficiency improvements to many homes to enable residents to save money at a time of price increases; as well as working for a city that has recently won the bid to be UK City of Culture 2017.”

Councillor Fraser, East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s portfolio holder for housing, environment and planning, said: “Not only will this proposal help to reduce carbon emissions from our homes, helping to cut energy bills and making our homes more comfortable, but it will also be a great boost to the local economy.”
