why not get facilities for putting a digital clock and power for score board . these positions get good sponsorship and would pay for themselves in no time.

I would think the BoD will look at all tenders in detail, as they have had support in a number of ways to raise the money so far.

There was a number of tenders for the work some more detailed than others, quotes were varied in price all from the same spec sheet.

I,m sure the BoD will make the right decision for the club knowing how the money has been raised and the financial position of the club.

It wouldn't be hard to under cut that price. Why cable round the ground when you can go straight across ? Re building of pitch wall why ? Design of base columns you have the design in the columns you already have. ? Why upgrade heads your using new columns. ? How much are you charging for civils ? There is not much civil work to do if you go straight across pitch ? Seems very costly

 

Your post is a little puzzling ?  you say we already have the design in the columns we already have ? even if we did (but we don't) the design of the below ground civil structure is based on ground conditions and wind loading which has to be calculated on the ground conditions were they are planned to be installed, and therefore a design is required from an Engineer following trial holes.

If you read my post  you will see that we have 4 second hand columns and 1 new one within the quotation

You sound like you have knowledge in this area of work ? If so you will understand that the columns will be installed near to the pitch side wall and in doing so a section of the wall will need to come down to cast a large reinforced concrete base.

Cabling straight across the pitch is not the cheapest option as i am sure you will already understand as the shortest route to each column would save on the price of the cable and prevent voltage drop  but the columns will be in the four corners of the pitch with one opposite the grandstand.

 

It may be a good idea for you to offer your services to the BoD if you can undercut the quotation supplied by Agrilek at the same time carry out the design,calculations and certification required ?

I never can understand people hiding behind pseudonyms. I think the most helpful thing would be for you to make contact with the BOD. No reason why this contact should be made public.

We already have. And also no were the columns are going and what is involved. So I no it seems very expensive

if you know it seems very expensive and you have experience in this field why don't you contact the club to say that  your company can do it cheaper rather than coming on here to ridicule the price?

 

or are you just talking out of your bumhole?

If you can do this for the club great and save us xxx amount of pounds that's fantastic and we would thank you, however I get a little suspicious when people just suddenly announce that they can produce the same installation at a cheaper price on a forum without even saying who you are! 

Quote acceptance should never be considered on price alone but should be judged on many assets that the firm brings to the table. Turnkey operation of a suitably managed installation would be my preference to some one offering an anonymous cold called price on a forum for a part of the project.

I was involved with the sub committee looking at the floodlight requirements at CP and there is more than one quotation for the work required! As I said previously some are more expensive some are cheaper, some are very well detailed on what they provide for the money some are not, what I say is have faith in the committee and there decision, I'm sure they will have all the requirements needed at hand, as well as details of guarantees ect for after the work is done.

All I can see on this post is that one tender is quite happy letting everyone know what price they have put in for the job.

If someone thinks this is a high price to pay I'm sure the committee would be interested to hear from you a.s.a.p., but in the meantime they do have more than one quote for the job lets wait an see what they decide to go with before getting excited.

With new floodlights the ground will be starting to look much better, especially with the improvements to the popular side which were completed last year.

Would love to see a new popular side roof and the long overdue demolition of Josephine's !!!!!!!!!!!!!! Now that IS an eyesore !!!!

What's the latest news on the progress of the floodlights from the Leisure Centre ?

Apparently the floodlight stanchions are laying on the terracing inside the ground.

Great news in the NWEM that a former director Eric wood secured the new lights from Barrow borough Council

 

It is no wonder that the people that have done all the work in the back ground for the club have washed there hands and walked away

 

What lies are next to come out  :rtfm:

I don't understand what you are saying Neil? Are you suggesting Eric had nothing to do with the club getting the lights? If so, what should have been printed in the mail?

I was asked to move the lights from Barrow Park by Barrow Council, immediately I started enquirers over what was happening with the lights. The lights were being stored with re selling them at a later date in mind.

 

Following negotiations Barrow Council agreed conditions for the issue of the lights free as long as they went to either Barrow Rugby or Roose Pioneers.  I obtained the letter of permission for the use off the council but the condition was that they could not be re sold and they had to be fit for purpose.

 

I obtained calculations for the lux levels which also proved that 5 lighting was ok and that a 5th column was required.

 

I then looked into the base design for the columns and I found that the steel base section was not with the columns in storage and the intention from the contractors in Barrow park was to re use the bases for isolating the electrical supply.

 

Again I negotiated with Barrow Council and offered to supply GRP kiosks to replace the bases as the cost of the bases was excess £2k each.  Eventually the council decided that we could have the bases and I collected them were they came to my yard were they stayed until they were collected a few weeks ago.

 

 

The only involvement from any other party was to finally collect them from our yard.
