Request for Expressions of Interest – Cob Oven

The City of Duncan (the “City”) invites expressions of interest for the management of the Community Cob Oven located in Centennial Park, 325 First Street, Duncan, BC.

This process will identify community groups interested in the management of this community asset. Depending on the application, the identified objectives and the abilities of the contractor, an operating agreement may be the outcome.

The cob oven is a “rocket stove”, a highly adaptable device that readily converts very little wood scraps (kindling) to heat within a half hour, and is available for cooking, heating, and drying. The cob oven covered area has a wood fired oven, grill and burner, a large marble countertop, double sinks, a hand-washing sink, and hot and cold running water. Two sides of the table are wheelchair accessible.

Proposals must be submitted to: or to City Hall at 200 Craig Street, Duncan, BC, on or before the submission deadline of Monday, May 31, 2021 at 3:00 p.m.

All inquiries related to the Request for Expressions of Interest, and submissions should be directed to:
