The City Council re-tender the extension works of the Sports Centre

  • The works, which have been paralysed for more than a year and a half, could resume in June
  • The works of the initial project were paralysed more than a year and a half ago |

The new project will have an initial investment of 4.48 million euros and a completion period of 14 months

Mijas Town Hall has once again put out to tender the extension works of Las Lagunas Sports Centre, following the breach of contract by the company which was awarded the contract for the work. This was announced on Tuesday by the Councillor for Works and Infrastructures, José Carlos Martín (Cs), and the Councillor for Purchasing and Contracting, Roy Pérez (PSOE).

As Martín pointed out, this is a large-scale project, much in demand by the residents of Las Lagunas, which was stopped more than a year and a half ago. "We had an administrative dispute with the construction company, which did not meet the deadlines or the conditions that were set at the time. And from that point, we initiated termination of the contract, with the corresponding penalties, so that the construction company would be liable for everything that the law on contracts stipulates in the event of non-compliance", summarised the Councillor.At the same time, the Works and Infrastructures team also set to work on this new tender, which includes the completion of the multi-purpose building, with an extension of around 800 square metres, as well as the creation of a therapeutic swimming pool, which will occupy an area of 400 square metres, and a children's playground of around 500 square metres. In this sense, Martín clarified that the contract is being put out to tender again, but with modifications, as the elements that were executed in the initial project are not included now. "We have taken the opportunity to add new improvements requested by the Sports Department, as well as updating the prices and the quality of the materials, which have changed since the original project was drawn up almost five years ago," explained the Councillor.

"The specifications are already published on the Public Sector Procurement Platform and will be available until 24th January at 7 pm. Therefore, from Mijas Town Hall, we invite those companies interested to submit their bids. It is a work that has a significant budget, and it will also be emblematic for our municipality," concluded Pérez, who also said that "if the procedures continue without problems, the work could resume in June, approximately.
