The address of the station is 2nd Avenue, Shopping City, Runcorn, WA7 2HG.
The police station comprises of a three storey building constructed from a reinforced concrete frame with an external enclosure of pre-finished cladding panels and a masonry inner leaf.
The existing windows are aluminium framed single glazed sliding sash or centre pivot windows.
Contractors should note the information provided above about the building when deciding to express interest and should note that they must have the ability to prove installations of a similar size and nature and references will be sought (refer to the pre-qualification questionnaire).
At this stage (Expression of Interest and Pre-Qualification Questionnaire PQQ) there will not be an opportunity for a site visit, however contractors may wish to view the site from the outside and only from areas which are accessible to members of the public. Under no circumstances are contractors to attempt to gain access to the site, nor ask at the reception/helpdesk to be able to access the site. A site visit opportunity will be available at the next Invitation to Tender stage.
There are a total of 42 windows to be replaced as part of this works project. A previous works project has replaced 27 windows, these recently installed windows are not part of this contract.
The new windows need to match the aesthetics, profile, thermal efficiency and performance of the windows that have previously been replaced. For your information, the previously replaced windows were manufactured by Technal – Product reference: FXi46 and have the following specification/features. Polyester powder coating finish. Insulating glass units incorporating low emissivity glass, argon filled. FX791 key locking handle with espagnolette lock mechanism.
Windows to be manufactured to meet BS 7950 requirements for security.
This contract will be for the installation and supply of 42 windows. It is anticipated that the supply of the windows will account for approximately 60% of the contract value, with the balance for installation.
The Authority is seeking a single contractor for the installation and supply of the replacement windows and accepts that a sub-contracting approach with a prime contractor role may be appropriate for certain aspects of the work.
The building will be occupied and operational 24 hrs a day and the contractor will need to work with the Estates Department to minimise disruption to operational policing.
Contractors must be FENSA registered and be an approved contractor by the window manufacturer/supplier.
Contractors are requested to note that the contract is anticipated to be awarded 19 October 2012. It is planned that pre-contract start work (including ordering of materials, lead times for window supply and vetting) will commence promptly after contract award. Work will be required to commence on site on 7 January 2013 with a completion date of 15 February 2013. Contractors are requested only to express interest if they have the capacity to meet the timescales required.
