Description of the contract

The University has an ambitious Campus Masterplan, which involves significant investment across its main campus until approximately 2022. Details of the Masterplan can be found at ( In order to realise its Campus Masterplan, the University has decided to establish a contractor partnering arrangement under a framework agreement (Partnering Framework) to procure and deliver the projects contained in the plan. In order to achieve its Campus Masterplan, the University intends to enter into an eight year framework agreement, utilising a partnership model. The University is looking to appoint a number of contractors (probably three) under the Partnering Framework who will be able to undertake various types of design and construction works at the University including, but not limited to, demolition, design, new build, refurbishment, decoration and landscaping/external works (Partnering Contractors). All projects under this Partnering Framework will be in excess of £10m (note: a project could contain a number of contracts). The University believes that a collaborative, partnership approach will encourage innovation in delivery; provide a structure for sharing knowledge and lessons learnt, leading to iterative improvements; create strong relationships, leading to streamlined working methodologies and enhanced delivery; and improved performance management of suppliers. The Campus Masterplan envisages a two phase programme of delivery. It is currently envisaged that Phase 1 will be carried out between 2015 and 2018 and will consist of projects with an estimated construction value of £360,000,000, with individual projects likely to be between £10m and £200m. Phase 2 (currently envisaged from 2018 to 2022 will have an estimated construction value of £310,000,000), with projects likely to be between £10m and £70m. It is possible that there may be some overlap between the two phases.Further details regarding the phases and the envisaged projects within them will be set out in the MOI and tender documentation.
