How Do I Tender?
Already Registered on Constructionline
For most works projects, the Estates Directorate uses the Constructionline database to identify Contractors for works, ranging in value from £100,000 to the current EU threshold. The relevant sectors and categories are:
Building General | Building Hospitals | Building Museums, Art Galleries and Libraries | Building Offices | Building Schools and Colleges
Building Sports and Leisure | Working in Occupied Premises | Working in Listed Buildings/Conservation Areas | Electrical | Mechanical
If your firm is already registered with Constructionline, you should ensure that your contact details are up to date and all registration information relating to the sectors and categories above is complete.
Not yet registered on Constructionline
If you wish to register your firm on Constructionline, visit their website and complete all the necessary details.
What if I don’t want to register on Constructionline?
Once a contract is advertised, you should forward a letter of interest to: Estates Directorate, Queen’s University Belfast, BT7 1NN.
The University will then advise on the proposed contract programme and ask you to forward your details, as outlined here, directly to Constructionline requesting a single project assessment of your company to ensure equality and consistency. Once this assessment has been completed and you are temporarily registered on Constructionline for the particular project, the normal selection procedures will apply.
The University wishes to point out this method of non-registered assessment is no guarantee of selection, and all registration costs must be covered by the Contractor. It should also be noted that non-registered assessment is on a project by project basis and does not pre-qualify the Contractor for selection for future tenders.
