Kingston Upon Hull City Council wishes to secure a private sector provider to design, build, finance and operate buildings and facilities at a number of locations/sites in the City for use as extra care housing units. The contract will be for the provision of approximately 215 units of extra care housing for social and/or affordable rent. The provider will be expected to be the landlord of the majority of the tenants and be responsible throughout the duration of the contract for the maintenance of the units and associated communal facilities, together with the provision of specified soft and hard facilities management services to the same. A small number of housing units may be retained in the ownership of Kingston Upon Hull City Council with the Council providing housing management services to those tenants. The provision of care and extra care services to the tenants and residents of the units will not form part of the project although the units will be required to be designed and operated in such a manner so as to facilitate the provision of care and extra care services by third parties. Kingston Upon Hull City Council expects bidders to propose solutions to satisfy the broad output based specifications. Kingston Upon Hull City Council is using the competitive dialogue procedure to allow scope for those matters to be resolved in post tender negotiations.
