Council seeks contractor as part of £30m Hull project

A contactor is being sought to deliver the new visitor centre at the North End Shipyard as part of the £30 million Hull Maritime project.

Interested contractors are now able to enter the first stages of a tender process by expressing an interest to Hull City Council and completing a selection questionnaire.

The staged approach will enable the Hull Maritime project to assess all bids before selecting up to six contractors to compete for the contract.

The plans for the visitor centre will put Hull on the map, becoming one of the most energy efficient buildings in the UK’s cultural and heritage sector.

Garry Taylor, Assistant Director for Major Projects and Place at Hull City Council, said: “This staged approach to the procurement process will allow us to ensure the best contractor is appointed to undertake and deliver this important element of the Hull Maritime project.”

He added: The creation of the new visitor centre will rejuvenate the area as well as well as achieving the best energy standards. The centre will tell the story of the Arctic Corsair’s tremendous career and the heyday of Hull’s trawling industry.”

The new two-storey visitor centre next to the dock and landscaping to the surrounding dockyard will not only regenerate the area, it will also highlight its historical significance and have its story told for the very first time.

The shipyard will also become the new, permanent dry-berth for the Arctic Corsair – Hull’s last remaining deep sea sidewinder trawler.

The Hull Maritime project, funded by Hull City Council and The National Lottery Heritage Fund, encompasses the redevelopment of five historic sites in Hull city centre: the transformation of the Grade II Hull Maritime Museum and the Dock Office Chambers, the creation of a new visitor attraction at the North End Shipyard and the restoration two historic vessels, the Arctic Corsair and Spurn Lightship.
