Cambridgeshire County Council Design and Build Contractor Framework 2021
Cambridgeshire County Council wishes to appoint a Framework of contractors to carry out Design and Build services across a variety of properties within the geographical boundaries of Cambridgeshire.
Cambridgeshire County Council (CCC) wishes to appoint a framework of contractors to carry out Design and Build services across a variety of properties within the geographical boundaries of Cambridgeshire, as well as any being open as below to all other public bodies within the boundaries of Cambridgeshire.
It is expected that an initial contract will last for a period of 3 years with the option of a 1 year extension and will take the form of a framework agreement, under which individual requirements for each project will be specified and awarded via mini-competition. It is difficult to predict the exact value of this contract as the Authority’s property portfolio is likely to vary over the contract term, but it is estimated that the total value will not be less £110m or greater than £150m.
The contractor shall be expected to primarily undertake Design & Build services for education capital projects, but the scope of the framework may also include adult social care, offices, community and public buildings. The framework will cover construction works and will include, but not be limited to, new build, demolitions, capital replacements, extensions, repairs and renovation programs. The successful framework providers will be expected to have a demonstrable track record of providing these services.
The Contracting Authority expects the successful framework providers to be building contractors who are expected to be supported by a number of architectural consultancies and other appropriate specialist consultants as required. The framework providers will be appointed to the framework through the NEC Framework Agreement. Works will be procured using NEC 4 Engineering Construction Contract (ECC) and Professional Services Contract (PSC). The Design & Build Framework will be intended to operate in alignment with the Cambridgeshire Construction Consultants Framework. The projects will be focused on education buildings, such as primary or secondary schools, with the balance on other public infrastructure such adult social care, offices, community and public buildings.
It is expected that the framework will last for a period of 3 years with the option of a 1 year extension and will take the form of a framework agreement, with mini-competitions run to determine the successful provider for each project. There shall be 4 lots within this contract, and Potential Providers are entitled to bid for up to three lots. Lots 1 and 3 are sub-divided into parts a) and b) to provide further breakdown on the forecasted number of projects and spend within each lot, however Potential Providers should treat both of these as 1 lot.This is a restricted tender process with 6-8 shortlisted potential providers per lot at SQ stage, to be invited to tender at ITT stage. CCC shall then award framework status to 5 successful providers per Lot.
