II.1.5)Short description of the contract or purchase(s)

Procurement of a design consultant to produce a high level master-plan and design to RIBA stage C/D (3) for the scheme, and to act as an agent for Medway Council when working with the contractor, and the second for a contractor to deliver the works.
This will be delivered in 3 phases:
Phase 1 — will be carried out by the consultant and will produce an overview strategy, establishing how areas will interact and their separate functions.
Phase 2 — will be carried out by the consultant and will consist of design to RIBA stage C/D (3), with sufficient technical information for tender issue to potential contractors to enable them to submit an accurate fixed price tender for implementation.
Phase 3 — will be carried out by the contractor to deliver the works. The consultant will also act as the council’s agent and will work with the contractor to ensure the works are completed in line with the design at RIBA stage C/D (3) in phase 2.
The main area to be covered by the Master-plan is the Chatham Waterfront Civic Space, stretching from the River Medway and the Waterfront Pumping Station towards the Bus Station, the Paddock and the north-western entrance to the Pentagon Shopping Centre. The Master-plan also includes the primary route from the Chatham Waterfront Civic Space to Chatham Rail Station, encompassing Military Road and the intersection with the High Street.
The Chatham Waterfront Civic Space is a key area for Chatham, with various landscapes and functions that allow for a range of development opportunities. This area has a busy footfall attributable to the Bus Station and the Pentagon Shopping Centre, which is intensified by the proximity of the High Street and Chatham Rail Station. Footfall will increase further with the installation of a digital Big Screen on the Waterfront Pumping Station, as the area will have increased appeal as a leisure destination. The Paddock area is a key asset as it forms an informal focal point for young people taking part in a wide variety of activities.
The key aim of this future Master-plan is to develop and integrate the focus area into the wider environment in order for it to become well connected, but at the same time assure its own identity as a central destination. The wider area has often been divided into different ‘quarters’, each one with a different focus.
