The New Student Centre will provide 2 primary functions: student learning space and a Student Enquiries Centre. A range of student learning spaces are required, and the building will provide ‘social’ spaces including a cafe as well as space for exhibitions. The learning spaces will vary in character and size, creating different types of individual study and group collaboration settings. None of the spaces will be used for formal teaching. Dedicated to the needs of the students, the building will deliver spaces and furniture solutions that are flexible, adaptable, and IT resourced, with effective power provision.
Flanked by listed buildings, the new building will occupy a central campus site within the Bloomsbury Conservation area. The site is a prime entrance to UCL’s Bloomsbury campus and is used extensively by both pedestrians and vehicles. The project includes demolition of part of the adjacent Bloomsbury Theatre to enhance the circulation routes around and through the new building. The building will comprise 4 floor levels above the ground floors, and 2 levels of basement.

The process seeks to select organisations offering the appropriate capability, capacity and competency. UCL reserves the right not to conclude any contracts, to change without notice the procedure for awarding contracts, to reject all or any bids for the contracts, to terminate discussions with all or any interested parties and/or to stop the process without any liability on its part.
All communications shall be in English (or a full translation provided at no cost to UCL). Tenders, when invited, and all supporting documentation must be priced in Sterling and all payments under the Contract will be in Sterling. Any contract or agreement resulting from acceptance of the Invitation To Tender (ITT) will be considered as a Contract made in England according to English Law and subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English Courts.
UCL does not bind itself to accept any tender and reserves the right to accept any part of the tender. No contract capable of acceptance will be created between UCL and any party until a contract is executed between UCL and the selected providers.
Expressions of interest must be in the form of a completed Pre-Qualification Questionnaire (PQQ) to be received as per the instructions in the OJEU notice. Expressions of interest not submitted in the required format or containing all the requested information may be rejected.
The contracting authority considers that this contract may be suitable for economic operators that are small or medium enterprises (SMEs). However, any selection of tenderers will be based solely on the criteria set out for the procurement, and the contract will be awarded on the basis of the most economically advantageous tender.
The tender process is being conducted electronically via In-tend.
Suppliers are required to register on this website: https://in-tendhost.co.uk/ucl in order to receive documentation. After registering, you should express an interest in the relevant tender and the tender documentation can then be downloaded.
All tender responses and any supporting documentation must be submitted through this system. There must be no postal correspondence from bidders unless agreed by UCL. Tenders shall not be sent and will not be accepted by fax or e-mail. It is bidder’s responsibility to ensure that their documents are uploaded on time and to check on the document size capability.
Bidders should be aware that typically there is a high demand on the system close to return deadline times.
