King George V project.
Alternative options considered:
Option 1 - Returning to cabinet in June to
approve revised budget. This would prejudice the progress of the
project as allowing for decision, call-in and contractor lead in
time the works would not start until late July 2022 and not
complete until January 2023. Due to a volatile market there is also
a distinct risk that the contractor will not hold their prices and
withdraw from the contract.
Option 2 - Retendering the contract. This would prejudice the progress of the project as allowing for the procurement process the works would not start until late August 2022 and not complete until January 2023. Due to a volatile market there are also no guarantees that prices would not increase further.
