The invitation period to tender for the design and build of a new fully-integrated health, social care and housing centre, Cylch Caron in Tregaron has closed. The submissions received are currently being evaluated.

The contract opportunity was published in the Official Journal of the European Union on 12 February 2018. The top five scoring contractors were invited to tender to deliver this much needed scheme.

Councillor Catherine Hughes, Chair of the Cylch Caron Stakeholder Board, said: “The tender application is a big step for the Cylch Caron project. We thank all companies from the construction industry who showed an interest in developing this centre on a design and build basis. We look forward to hearing the outcome of the evaluation.”

The tender for a design and build solution has been developed with the aim of delivering best value for money and modern health, social care and extra-care facilities for current and future generations.

The scheme is being developed in partnership between Ceredigion County Council, Hywel Dda University Health Board, Mid-Wales Housing and the Welsh Government. It will consist of a GP surgery, community pharmacy, outpatient clinics and community nursing and social care facilities, as well as extra care flats and integrated health and social care units.
