The Prague City Hall is planning to select a new supplier of street furniture by February. The city invited 17 vendors from across the European Union including local ones in preliminary consultations. Four of them expressed interest in entering a tender.
The selection process for the new supplier of street furniture was initiated in February last year. The project is expected to cost just under CZK 80 million.
“This is a key contract and we wanted to cover all aspects in the preparatory stage. We also offered all city districts and relevant municipal organizations to join centralized ordering of street furniture. This will simplify the agenda and reduce the cost,” says City Councilor Jan Chabr. “This includes benches, waste bins, and other street furniture as defined in a competition held by the Prague Planning and Development Institute. Prague will now get street furniture in a unique, distinctive design.”
A total of 22 entities have joined the centralized ordering system until now. These include mainly city districts, the Road Administration and the administration of the Vyšehrad National Monument. Bid envelopes are expected to be officially opened on 18 January 2021.
