2 Contract Details

2.1

Title

National Conservation Centre – Consultancy Support

2.2

Description of the goods or services required

The Scottish Ministers have tasked Historic Scotland with taking forward proposals to develop a new National Conservation Centre in the Forthside area of Stirling, with an anticipated delivery date of December 2015. The core purpose of the National Conservation Centre is to raise standards of conservation for traditional buildings and awareness of the importance of traditional materials and skills to a broad audience, from schoolchildren to building conservation specialists. Whilst one important element of the project is the bringing of a redundant historic building back into use and the associated contribution to the regeneration of the Forthside area of Stirling, the wider heritage remit of the project is to provide a central national resource for the better understanding of conservation skills across the UK. In order to provide the necessary accommodation for the National Conservation Centre, the Engine Shed – a redundant early 20th century structure that originally formed part of a large military complex at Forthside – will be conserved, renovated and extended. The building will be used as a centre for Historic Scotland’s technical outreach and education activities with a focus on the appropriate repair and maintenance of traditional buildings, along with the improvement of energy efficiency in them. Further, it will ensure Historic Scotland’s work on digital survey, preservation of the built heritage and scientific research within the heritage sector is brought into its mainstream work. In support of the above project Historic Scotland are seeking the appointment of various works – related Consultancy services comprising the following disciplines:

– Quantity Surveying services (including CDM Co-ordinator);

– Structural Engineering services;

– Mechanical and Electrical Engineering services.

The estimated value of the main contract work is £3.8m – £4.2m (excluding VAT). The services provided will entail both pre-contract and post-contract services subject to funding availability for stages A – E and F – L. Stage 1 funding will be known at the end of March 2013 and Stage 2 at the end of March 2014.
