2. The Project Brief
The University’s 2025 Estates Study identifies the vision for the Easter Bush Campus as one of the world leading campus. Development of the campus is critical to the College of Medicine’s business expansion plans so the mixture of research, teaching, clinical, administration and support facilities will continue to grow in the next 10 years.
The University undertook a major infrastructure project during 2008 to 2012, investing in water, gas, roads and electrical to facilitate the capital building project being delivered during those years. With more captial building projects now planned further investment is required in the campus’s infrastructure as Easter Bush continues to grow.
To facilitate this need a new project has been given approval by the University Estates Committee – Easter Bush Campus Infrastrucutre Project 2014 – 2019.
An initial study by the University Estates Team have identified the variety of elements required to be delivered by the Infrastructure project. These elements have been established into 9 lots —
Lot 1 New HV Transformer Hubs
Lot 2 New HV Transformer ring
Lot 3 SUDS ponds
Lot 4 Water
Lot 5 Gas
Lot 6 Msc civil engineering to facilitate engineering strategy
Lot 7 Drainage
Lot 8 CCTV
Lot 9 Data and phones
Each lot will require its own engineering strategy. It is intended that design work to establish these strategies for all lots commences immediately. This will allow an overall engineering strategy for the campus to be produced for the end of RIBA Stage C and full costings to take place.
Thereafter each lot can be deliverd in isolation to each other and taken forward over the next 5 years as capital projects and funding come into line. These potential breaks between RIBA Stages need to be recognised in the fee proposal.
It is intended to make one appointment for a Design Team. The Design Team should either be made up from a multi-disciplne engineering consultancy or a lead consultant with a series of engineering sub-consultants. Either way a lead consultant needs to be identified as they will be responsible for management and co-ordination of the team, design and construction. As this is a management role the Lead Consultant can therefore come from any discipline.
Post RIBA Stage C, roll over to other lots will be subject to approval of business plans, funding availability and the satisfactory performance of the appointed Design Team.
Design Team services will be based on a percentage fee of estimated construction work (excluding VAT) relative to each lot. This percentage fee should include all multi discipline sub consultants and the lead consultant. As part of ITT successful teams will be asked to give combined fee bids for each lot separated into 3 stages – RIBA Stage C, RIBA D to H and RIBA J to L.
The Design Team should consist of –
Lead Consultant
Elecrical Engineering Consultant
Mechanical Engineering Consultant
Civil Engineering Consultant
There may be a need for very specialist sub-consultants to be procured at a later stage as the strategies develop e.g. CCTV, acoustician etc. In this circumstance the University will instruct the Design Team to accept the specialist as a sub-consultant.
The University will be directly appointing the following specialist* design (consultants) services. The Design Team appointed via this tendering exercise will be required to work with these consultants and other Design Teams working in the campus –
— CDM-Cordinator
— Landscape Architect
— Planning Consultant
— Quanity Surveyor
— Roads
— BREEAM
3. Overview Of Procurement Exercise
As a first step to awarding the design contract for this project, this Pre-qualification Questionnaire (PQQ) has been drafted in order to assess the ability of the companies who are seeking the appointment. The PQQ is marked out of 67 and the highest 5 companies will be invited to tender.
The ITT stage will comprise a percentage fee of the construction costs and a further questionnaire. Both will be marked and weighted as per award criteria to get a final cost/quality mark. All companies selected for the ITT stage will be invited for interview and the marks incorporated into the quality score.
