II.1.4)Short description:

DCLG, advised by the UK Holocaust Memorial Foundation, is seeking to procure full design services for a Holocaust Memorial and Learning Centre.

On Holocaust Memorial day in 2016, the UK Government announced that the National Holocaust Memorial will be located adjacent to the Palace of Westminster in Victoria Tower Gardens, London. The Government has also been clear that in delivering this National Memorial it seeks to maximise the interpretative and educational benefits. The Holocaust Commission was clear that the strongest way of delivering those benefits would be through the creation of a co-located Learning Centre. Following an extensive search of potential sites across London and a detailed analysis of Victoria Tower Gardens, the cross-party UK Holocaust Memorial Foundation is now formally recommending to Her Majesty’s Government that such a Learning Centre should indeed be co-located (below ground) with the National Memorial in Victoria Tower Gardens.

II.2.4)Description of the procurement:

The procurement is a 2 stage design competition, run under the Restricted Procedure.

The Department for Communities and Local Government, advised by the UK Holocaust Memorial Foundation, is seeking to procure full design services. The design team as a minimum should include an architect, a landscape architect and interpretation design, but might also include way-finding, lighting design, access consultancy and any other disciplines deemed vital to the design approach. Engineering disciplines, cost consultancy and project management will be procured separately.

The competition is seeking holistic designs comprising 2 key parts. The 1st part fulfils the minimum commitment of a National Memorial, requiring an outstanding design for a standalone memorial, including landscaping and above ground work. The 2nd part is the below ground Learning Centre component, which will be taken forward subject to technical, financial, planning or other constraints. Both parts should be considered holistically together, as set out in the competition documents.

Her Majesty’s Government has committed 50 000 000 GBP as its contribution to the total project costs of the National Memorial, the creation and running of a co-located Learning Centre and additional wider educational work on the Holocaust. In taking forward the winning design, HM Treasury standard Green Book processes for capital projects will be applied.
