II.2.4)Description of the procurement:

Operational Signage (Lots 1) Background The English Heritage Trust is a charity that manages 412 historic properties. These properties represent a precious collection of physical remains from a long span of England’s history. 118 properties are staffed, and some are managed through Local Management Agreements, while the remainder are free to visit. In opening our historic properties to visitors, we need to ensure that we provide the information necessary for them to navigate and understand the properties as part of their overall experience. A core element of this is well thought out signage. Getting signage at properties right is very important. The overall presentation of our sites says a great deal about us as an organisation, and we aspire to the highest standards in ensuring that signs are appropriately positioned, in good condition, properly worded and relevant. All of our signs conform to a design style, developed with our Brand and Design team. Signs can be either surface or post mounted. When we install new signage, consideration has to be given to a sign’s impact on setting and/or historic fabric. English Heritage has to obtain Class 6 consent (SMC6) for any installation on a scheduled site. Occasionally signs may need planning permission. For locations where there are significant archaeological remains at shallow depth, it may be possible to install a sign with a plate footing, rather than a post fixed in concrete.

II.2.4)Description of the procurement:

Interpretation Signage (Lot 4) English Heritage looks after over 400 historic sites all of which are open to the public and many of which are staffed. Our properties include historic country houses and gardens, palaces, ruined abbeys, prehistoric settlements, burial sites, castles and roman remains. Many of these are in remote and exposed locations. In order to help visitors understand our sites interpretative panels and labels are provided at all English Heritage sites. They may be fixed to lecterns, frame-fixed to walls, or supplied as free standing units; this will be specified at the time of ordering. English Heritage has defined a common yet distinct visual language for external interpretative signage. For the production of this we are looking for high quality manufacturing techniques that will produce external quality graphic panels with a lifespan of 10 years. English Heritage look forward to receiving proposals from those manufacturers with extensive experience in this field. The specification that follows includes 2 types of signage — 1 for our current signage system, and 1 for a future signage system for which tenderers are invited to present their proposals. Each section contains the codes for costs where these are required and can be cross-referenced with the Pricing Schedule contained in section 2.4 of the invitation to tender.
