MBABANE – Pots Construction (Pty) Ltd has officially been granted the Lavumisa roadworks tender.


This was after the lapse of the 10 working period for any application for review which had been allowed in accordance with the Public Procurement Act of 2011.


Pots Construction had outsmarted two companies in a competitive bid to emerge as the best evaluated tenderer for Lavumisa Town Board 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 tasks. 


The construction company, with head offices located opposite Queens Gate in the capital city, has signed a 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 signed on Wednesday, the company will also install streetlights, install sleeves for future services and asphalt overlay.


Town Clerk Manzi Mthupha confirmed that the tender has been signed on the basis of the bid price of E2.4 million.
“We have entered into the contract because there was no application for review. We are confident that they will complete the task by the end of November,” said Mthupha.


The highest bidder among the three evaluated contenders had been Afrotim Construction who had priced their bid at the E3.1 million while Heptagon Company bidded for E2.9 million.


The tender evaluation results reflected 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 the invitation for bids.
