— site clearance and disconnection of utility service or removal of redundant plant and services;
— removal and the protection of trees including the provision of temporary services for the construction works;

NHH’s will run this tender using the Open Procedure, meaning the tender will be run over 1 stage with a combined qualification questionnaire and Invitation to Tender (ITT); and is intending to appoint between 3 to 5 contractors. NHH is looking to finalise the award of this Framework Agreement no later than early January 2016 and for expediency, NHH will place the first call-off, in relation to Site 1 of our forthcoming regeneration programme at the Aylesbury Estate in Southwark, with the bidder who received the highest combined (quality and pricing) score during this tendering exercise.
Notwithstanding any statement on this notice to the contrary, this framework will be available for use by NHH (and its associated entities) and any other contracting authority that is a provider of affordable housing that is developing a site within the Greater London area for the inclusion of affordable housing.

The Framework will be let over 4 years (2 + (up to) 2 year) and is estimated to be worth between 150 000 000 GBP and 250 000 000 GBP. The value has been estimated on the anticipation of works to be commissioned by NHH within the next 4 years, and allowing for other providers of affordable housing (HA) to call-off from this Framework.
