Section II.2.1 — Contract value is given as a range between 1 000 000 GBP and 4 000 000 GBP. This is due to the phased nature of the construction, the current preferred building option is split into 3 phases, as explained in the descriptive document.
Although the contract will be for all phases the initial appointment will relate to Phase 1 and the outline design for Phase 2 only. Further phases / design will be provisional and may not be undertaken or instructed. For clarity, the minimum value of the contract will be 1 000 000 GBP and the maximum value (if all phases are undertaken) will be 4 000 000 GBP.
Section II.2.3 — The initial length of the contract will be 60 months to cover Phase 1 in total and the outline design for Phase 2 only. The contract will be subject to 2 further renewals of 24 months and 36 months to cover Phases 2 and 3 respectively. For clarity, the contract will be awarded and renewed as below:
— Initial Contract — 60 months (to cover Phase 1 in total and the outline design for Phase 2 only),
— Renewal 1 — 24 months (to cover Phase 2 in total),
— Renewal 2 — 36 months (to cover Phase 3 in total).
The University wishes to appoint a single Engineering Consultancy company for all phases of the Biomedical Research Building (if phases 2 and 3 are instructed), in order to minimise risk and ensure value for money by utilising the experience which will be gained from the project, maintaining the integrity of the phases of the project which cannot easily be split, and ensuring that the final project can be delivered in the tight timetable required.
