The contract subject to this Contract Notice (phase I) is a Design and Build contract for construction of a mixed-use block comprising one 14 storey tower and 6 storey blocks plus a full basement, providing 141 homes (66 affordable and 75 private) with 1-4 bed mix range, 407sqm retail supermarket (A1) with associated 40sqm plant space, as well as 327sqm flexible floorspace (A1-A5 and B1), and associated basement space for car/ bike parking, plant, servicing, ancillary storage, and energy centre.
This will be built on the current Belsize Road car park site, on the south west corner of the junction of Belsize Road and Abbey Road. The phase 1 site is bounded to the south by the West Coast Main Line, to the North by Belsize Road, East by Abbey Road and West by residential houses.
Phase 1 is part of a hybrid planning application for a 3-phase development with phase 1 submitted in detail, and phases 2 and 3 in outline only. The planning application was submitted in July 2013, and approved in November 2013.
Key elements of phase 1 design detail will be priced and included by the Architect in progressing the project to RIBA Stage D. Detailed designs will be subsequently developed by the contractor and agreed with the client team / Employers Agent.
Passing detailed design responsibility to the contractor will allow them to identify where better value solutions can be introduced that do not detract from the quality of the product. Typically this would be in areas of construction methodologies, product selection, optimising off-site component fabrication and construction detailing.
The contract is anticipated to be awarded in February 2015, with a five month design development and value engineering period, before construction begins August 2015.
