The London Borough of Barnet: the Council is seeking a private sector partner PSP to enter into a strategic partnership arrangement to enable the Council to deliver a range of construction projects and needs as part of its Capital Programme over the next 5 years with an option to extend the contract for a further 2 years at the sole discretion of the Council.
The strategic partner will be tasked with delivering construction opportunities allocated to the partnership arrangements as well as providing Strategic Partnering Services to support the delivery of the Council’s Capital Programme.
The Strategic Partnering Services will include (but are not limited to):
— Assisting the Council in optimising the deliverability, functionality and commercial aspects of designs being developed by the Council for proposed projects;
— Providing consultancy services to assist the Council in scheme phasing, site investigation and surveys, technical consultancy support, cost planning and supply-chain planning and management to achieve efficiencies in delivering the Capital Programme; and
— Assisting the Council in engagement and communications with public and statutory stakeholders.
The Capital Programme is expected to include the Council construction requirements for sports and leisure facilities schools and educational facilities libraries and community facilities and refurbishment works requirements for schools and educational facilities libraries and community facilities over the next 5 to 7 years.
The potential capital value of the Capital Programme opportunities during the partnership period is estimated to be up to 150 000 000 GBP over the initial 5 years or in conjunction with the additional 2 year extension.
These projections are not intended as a cap on the value of construction to be delivered through the partnership.
The initial projects are expected to include the construction of 2 new leisure facilities currently scheduled to begin construction in September 2016. This consists of a new leisure centre, to be constructed on the Copthall Estate, to replace the existing centre currently situated there. In addition a new leisure centre is to be constructed on a green field site within the Borough subject to Planning Approval that will eventually replace the current provision at Church Farm Leisure centre. The combined capital value of the 2 projects is estimated to be in the region of 25 000 000 GBP.
The Council will separately procure designers for projects but will novate designer appointments to the Partner.

Further details of the pipeline of potential projects in the Capital Programme and the commercial assumptions on the estimated figures are provided in the Memorandum of Information accompanying the pre-qualification questionnaire as part of the procurement documents available to view through the portal www.barnetsourcing.co.uk referred to in section I.1) Electronic Access to Information above. As a supplier you will need to register on the portal to access the documents. There is a Documents tab to download for instruction to submit your responses.

The overall value of the opportunity will be dependent on many commercial factors including but not limited to the approval of schemes by the Council, market conditions, the needs and budget of the Capital Programme over time and whether the schemes are allocated to the strategic partner under the terms of the project contracts.
Bidders should seek independent legal and commercial advice in relation to the potential value of the opportunity of the scheme as a whole.
This procurement will be using Competitive procedure with negotiation.
