Tender for the Design and Rebuilding of the Convenience Store

Tristan da Cunha CrestThe Government of Tristan da Cunha is pleased to open the tender for
The Design for the Rebuilding of the Existing Shop (Convenience Store)
on Tristan da Cunha Island.

The island only has one convenience store and warehouse (known as 'The Canteen') which is currently in a building that is old, not fit for purpose and too small for the needs of the community. The Government has the ambition to rebuild the store with a modern and quality convenience store and warehouse that will serve the community of Tristan da Cunha for decades to come. The first part of this project is to obtain a fully costed design upon which a bid for capital funding for the new store can be based.

The Government welcomes any bids from qualified architects/architectural firms to provide a bid for the design works.
