To continue the development of Heslington East, the University is now looking to develop a new building for a new venture – the Piazza Learning Centre.
The Piazza Learning Centre includes:
— A foundation college providing high quality academic programmes and English language preparation for overseas students aspiring to enter undergraduate study in the University.
— Additional teaching space and lecture facilities for the University
— A large restaurant and social space for students on campus and also available to conference guests.
The new Learning Centre is located on the opposite side of the Heslington East Piazza from the Ron Cooke Hub Building, at the southern end of the Central Vista – a landscaped corridor which punctuates two clusters of campus development.
The site demands a high quality landmark building and is of a scale that holds its place in the master plan opposite the Hub building. Overall the Piazza Learning Centre has a GIA of approximately 6 300 sqm.The building has already been designed to RIBA Stage 2 although with slightly different functional requirements underpinning the design ethos. The successful bidder will be required to work with the University to reconfigure the building layout to serve new functional requirements. Planning permission for the development has been granted.
A separate project is underway to clear the site of existing utilities infrastructure, to provide the new building with connection points into mains utilities, and to enhance the capacity of the nearby substation to serve this facility. The University will offer a clear site to the successful bidder. However, there may be residual mains utilities infrastructure works required of the successful bidder to facilitate the successful integration of the new building with the mains infrastructure network.
An accurate and complete specification will be included within the Invitation to Tender (ITT) document.
It is envisaged that construction for the building will begin by no later than the end of March 2016 with the building being operational by no later than 31.7.2017.
It is envisaged that short listed candidates will be provided with the completed RIBA Stage 2 report and will be responsible for developing and completing the design to bring the building in line with updated functional requirements and for its construction.
The University will employ third party consultants as technical advisors. There is no pre-existing design team to novate to the successful bidder. Candidates are therefore required to form their own design and build teams.
The project will be procured on a 2 Stage Design and Build basis (shortlisted candidates) with a single bidder being taken forward to the second stage.
Further details will be provided in the tender documentation (shortlisted candidates only).
