The London Borough of Croydon (the Council) is seeking to procure consultancy services to support the project development of the new build housing programme. Under this programme a number of sites owned by the Council have been identified for development. The units will be designed and constructed to code for sustainable homes level 4 with a progression to level 5, and will incorporate where appropriate, renewable design features including photo voltaic units, grey water and wind turbines. The design quality of the homes will be built to high environmental sustainability standards, achieving a minimum of Code for Sustainable Homes (CSH) level 4. We are currently exploring the possibility of delivering one of these properties as a passivhaus or “Passive House” energy performance standard. This involves building houses that have an excellent thermal performance, exceptional air tightness with mechanical ventilation to reduce energy loss.
The consultancy services will develop the proposed sites from their current status (generally feasibility study stage) through the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) outline plan of work leading to securing planning permission and the development of documentation for design and build project single stage tenders using a construction framework mini-competition process. Consultancy services to include but are not limited to the following: architectural, construction, engineering and inspection services, architectural and related services, architectural services for buildings, architectural, engineering and planning services, calculation of costs, monitoring of costs, Supervision of building work, engineering services, structural engineering consultancy services, energy-efficiency consultancy services, health and safety services, building-inspection services, quantity surveying services and construction project management services.
