II.2)Quantity or scope of the contract

II.2.1)Total quantity or scope:

The University of Wolverhampton (the ‘University’) (including any entity which from time to time is a subsidiary of the University of Wolverhampton and any entity over which from time to time any of the entities defined in this paragraph either directly or indirectly exercises management or financial control, even though it may own less than (50 %) of the shares and is prevented by law from owning a greater shareholding) wishes to enter into a contract (the ‘Contract’) with a Contractor (the ‘Contractor’) to design and construct the new School of Architecture and Built Environment, Springfield Campus (SOABE) to the University and its Entities. The University is seeking an agreement via Competitive Tenders (‘Tenders’) from suitably qualified organisations (‘Tenderers’) in response to this Invitation to Tender (‘ITT’) for the provision of the aforementioned Works.
In order to allow this Contract to be used for potential Funded projects we are notifying all tenderers that some works might be subject to part funding by, for example, the European Structural and Investment Funds Growth Programme for England (2014-2020) or any other European Union Funded Programme, or other Funding Body. This particular contract may be funded from HEFCE and/or BCLEP, and/or ESIF.

The University of Wolverhampton has purchased the iconic old Springfield Brewery site in the centre of Wolverhampton, in order to develop it in to a smart specialisation hub for Construction and the Built Environment. This will act as a catalyst for the regeneration of the local area, and the Black Country, commencing with the opening of the West Midlands Construction UTC in November 2016, followed by the Elite Centre for Manufacturing Skills in June 2017. The University requires a design and build contractor to deliver the move of the School of Architecture and Built Environment (SOABE) to the site in 2019. The SOABE development itself will have a gross internal area of circa 8 250 m2, which comprises of both refurbishment of the existing building and a new build element (with associated car parking for 45 cars). A BREEAM rating of ‘Very Good’ has been targeted that will take into account the new build, refurbishment and fit out elements. 1 of the main aspirations from the University of Wolverhampton is that this building will be iconic but as efficient as possible with regards to the usage of space and the integration of the new and old aspects of the site.

The construction value for the project will be circa 20 000 000 GBP. The form of contract will be the JCT 2011 Design and Build Contract. Design is due to be issued at RIBA Stage 3 with the Main Contractor developing the scheme from RIBA Stage 4 to 6.
It is the University’s intention to novate the Design Team across to the successful Contractor on the formation of Contract, however should any Tenderer wish to appoint their own design team and still comply with the contract requirements, this will be considered by the University subject to provision of the full details of the proposal.
This is a 1-off Procurement exercise for the University. The works must commence on-site February 2017 and be complete by February 2019.
This requirement is not split into Lots: the need to coordinate the different contractors for the lots could seriously risk undermining the proper execution of the project.
The University is administering the Tender process in accordance with the provisions of the EU Procurement Directives and Public Contracts Regulations 2015 (Competitive Procedure with Negotiation).
Estimated value excluding VAT: 20 000 000 GBP
