MBABANE – Pots Construction (Pty) Ltd proved its competitive edge by outsmarting two companies in a competitive bid to emerge as the best evaluated tenderer.

This was during the Lavumisa Town Board national bidding for the upgrading of roads and drainages within the town’s first extension. Heptagon Company (Pty) Ltd and Afrotim Construction (Pty) Ltd were contenders in the multimillion Emalangeni tasks. 

The construction company, with head offices located opposite Queens Gate in the capital city, stands to be awarded the contract which entails cutting to stockpile gravel, cutting to spoil unsuitable material, construction of sub grade, installations of kerbs and subways.
As part of the five months contract they stand to sign next Wednesday, the company will also install street lights, install sleeves for future services and asphalt overlay.

Town Clerk Manzi Mthupha reported that the bid price at tender opening for Pots Construction was at E2.4 million. This bid remained unchanged even after evaluation.

The highest bidder among the three evaluated contenders was Afrotim Construction who had priced their bid at the E3.1 million and Heptagon Company which had priced their bid at E2.9 million.
The tender evaluation results reflect that Turboway Construction (Pty) Ltd, Mbhilibhi Earthworks Specialists (Pty) Ltd and Iceberg Contractors (Pty) Ltd were rejected for various reasons.

The most common reason for these companies not to make the cut was the non- submission of a satisfactory schedule of plant and equipment as stipulated by invitation for bids.
