II.1.5)Short description of the contract or purchase(s):

Manchester Airport is currently characterised by a fragmented 3-terminal operation, supported by two runways, a transport interchange, various landside road networks and significant supporting infrastructure.
Terminal One was opened in 1962 and has undergone significant expansion and redevelopment in the intervening years, most recently in 2007 — 2009. Terminal Two Opened in 1993 (along with the railway station) and has also undergone some redevelopment. Terminal 3, originally the domestic terminal, was opened in 1989 and benefited from significant investment with a major extension opening in 1998.
There is the potential to modernise Manchester Airport in line with growing passenger and airline demand and expectations over the coming years.
Manchester Airport Plc (MA), part of the Manchester Airports Group, as part of their ten year capital investment programme plans to transform Manchester Airport (the Manchester Airport Transformation Programme or MAN-TP) and position the airport as the “Northern Gateway” and create a modern transport hub. MAN-TP is in response to key factors such as forecast passenger growth, changing customer and airline expectations and positioning Manchester Airport as a key component of the country’s aviation system.
MA wishes to commission the design and construction of Package 01 — T2 Transformation Phase 1 works as part of the MAN-TP. By way of overview, the proposed works comprise, but are not limited to, the following work elements:
— New Baggage Factory.
— New Piers.
— New Terminal Extension Building.
— Forecourt Extension and Upgrade of Existing Forecourt.
— Associated Access Roads.
— Alterations to Existing Terminal.
— New Multi-storey Car Parks.
— Site Clearance.
— Associated Services Diversions.
The overall scope of works includes, but is not limited to: design and construction of building, civil and structural engineering, mechanical and electrical and IT works in connection with the work elements identified above and the management of interfaces.
It is envisaged that this entire scope of works will be procured, via a negotiated process, under one NEC design and build contract that is structured in two stages: design and construction.
A single contract will be entered into with the successful bidder for the two stages of the works required. MA however retains the option whether to extend the contract for delivery of second stage of works (construction) by the successful bidder and exercise of this option will be dependent upon (without limitation) the design works having been completed in accordance with MA’s requirements. MA further retains the option to terminate the contract following completion of the design stage and reserves the right to negotiate with the second placed (or indeed any other lower ranking bidder as appropriate) in relation to delivery of the construction works required under the second stage of the project.
MA has separately commissioned a design team together with a managed service provider (MSP). The development of the RIBA Stage 3 Developed Design will be undertaken by MA’s appointed Architect and Engineer from December 2015 to May 2016.
Given the nature of works required and the background described above, MA anticipates that this project will be led by a construction company that will procure its own design expertise (either externally or internally appointed). MA reserves the right however to discuss during the course of the negotiation phase, potential for the successful contractor engaging MA’s design team.
