II.1.1)Title attributed to the contract by the contracting authority:
The Masterplanner will need to offer a complete one stop shop required to provide the following (but not limited to) strategic, co-ordinated and integrated Master Plan advice, comprising Architectural, Landscape, Ecology, Utility and Transport design services and associated specialist advice. These services will be required initially for the School and SEN with the Housing element to follow at the appropriate time.
The successful Masterplanner will also be expected to act as Design Team Lead Consultant and will need to appoint and manage all design sub-consultants directly and/or be able to provide the required service in house.
The Masterplan will look at feasible options for the development of neighbouring sites which are all located in North Kensington. Due to programme constraints, we would envisage the successful bidder to commence both elements i.e. the Masterplan and the detailed design of two new schools concurrently.
It is currently proposed that the successful bidder will be selected in January 2015. The Council would like to be in a position to assess the Masterplan preferred option by April 2015 and school designs to enable a start on site no later than January 2016.

Minimum level(s) of standards possibly required: Candidates must have a three year mean average turnover of GBP 2 000 000 per year. Single organisations must exceed the Turnover Threshold. A consortium must exceed the Turnover Threshold. In order to calculate whether a consortium exceeds the Threshold, the three year mean average turnover for each consortium member will be calculated and for each consortium member, the result will be multiplied by their actual or anticipated percentage equity stake in the legal entity to be formed to deliver the services and the totals will be added together. This combined figure must equal or exceed the Turnover Threshold. For the avoidance of doubt, each member of the consortium does not need to individually exceed the Threshold. Sub-contractors employed by the consortium also do not need to exceed the Threshold. A prime contractor with sub-contractors: the prime contractor must exceed the Turnover Threshold; sub-contractors of the prime contractor do not need to exceed the Threshold. Candidates’ latest audited accounts will be appraised by independent specialist accountants and must pass the following objective test: attain a financial strength score not lower than 50/100 and an assessment that the candidate is not at higher than average risk of financial failure. Candidates must also meet minimum requirements for insurance cover that will be set out in the PQQ. Failure to pass these tests will lead to the candidate’s exclusion from the competition.
