The IHBC’s commercial conservation services listing, HESPR – the Historic Environment Service Providers Recognition scheme – offers members weekly HESPR Bulletins that list commercial tender opportunities, and now IHBC members can enjoy weekly ‘top picks’ from the Director through their NewsBlogs, as this week we feature a heritage tourism-linked project from Orkney valued at £20,000 to £30,000, closing on 3 October.
IHBC Chair James Caird said: ‘Our weekly tender notification to HESPR members is an innovative service that supports commercial conservation practice working to the IHBC’s standards and expectations. These weekly NewsBlog ‘top-pick’ selections offer the wider heritage world a weekly insight to conservation practice that we hope combines good news, sector insight and service inspiration all in one.
‘So do please also let us know of any work opportunities you are involved with. We will post them to our HESPR members, fast and for free, and they may also feature on our NewsBlogs, giving your work even more substantial profile across the sector.’
Top tender pick of the week
The Director’s top pick from the HESPR Bulletin for this week comes from Orkney Islands Council and Highlands and Islands Enterprise. Heritage-linked tourism is a key factor in the economy of the islands, but such success needs to be managed, so the clients now seek a ‘consultancy report to assess the factors that might impact on the islands’ valuable tourism offer as visitor numbers continue to increase. The study findings will seek to inform a future volume tourism destination management framework that recognises the impacts and sustainable economic opportunities associated with increasing visitor numbers. The report will advise on key infrastructure constraints, and areas for potential improvements and investment.’ The contract value is for £20,000 – £30,000 and the closing date is coming up fast, on 3 October.
