Contracting for Building and Design Services

You are here

Building and Design Services provides a full range of professional property-related services to other areas of the Council, including:

  • Architecture;
  • Building Surveying;
  • Electrical and Mechanical Engineering;
  • Project Management.

We also offer the above services to other councils and housing associations, on a commercial basis, as well as charitable organisations upon agreement.

Since 2011 Ipswich Borough Council has procured professional services e.g. repairs and maintenance, and test and inspection contracts, through a newly set up quotation and tendering process. This process was set up under a partnership arrangement with other local authorities in the area to create Suffolk Sourcing; the lead administrative council being Suffolk County Council.

All quotations, tenders and maintenance contracts are open to view by any contractors (and members of the public alike) and contractors are able to submit their quotes/tenders once they have registered with Suffolk Sourcing.

Many of our larger contractors are also registered with Constructionline which is a national government accredited database listing thousands of buyer users across the UK. It aims to reduce the amount of paperwork you have to complete during any pre-qualification processes that may apply.
