Westminster City Council is committed to the most ambitious house building programme for a generation. The Council is on track to deliver 1 850 new affordable homes by 2023 with sites for a further potential 2 000 new homes identified. The delivery of these homes involves complex regeneration schemes at Ebury Bridge Estate and Church Street, as well as sensitive infill and prominent high profile sites across the city. The delivery of these homes will depend on a range of potential delivery solutions including partnerships with development and investment partners and self-delivery. Westminster’s newly formed wholly owned development company also offers a route for funding, delivering and owning new intermediate rent, market rent and sale housing across the borough.
The Ebury Bridge Estate renewal project is the most strategically important of all these developments. Ebury is located in the South-West of the borough, close to Victoria Station. Railway tracks to Victoria act as a physical barrier to the East of the estate and the Belgravia neighbourhood is to the West. The estate has excellent connectivity and offers a tremendous opportunity for a prestigious, exemplar estate renewal opportunity in Central London.
The Council has made significant investment over recent years developing a high quality, exciting scheme in consultation with local residents and approved the full demolition and re-provision of the estate in July 2018. The Council has established an experienced team and in March 2019 committed to and approved to self-deliver an initial phase comprising over 200 new, mixed tenure homes and the first of the new open public squares, setting the design quality and delivery intentions for the new Ebury. This initial phase will enable the Council to fulfil their re-housing commitments locally and achieve vacant possession of later phases. Ebury sits at the heart of the Council’s City for All intentions and we are now seeking suitable partners to help us deliver and achieve these aspirations. The works comprise the demolition of a number of residential blocks with the Ebury Bridge estate.
This requirement falls under the Ebury Bridge Estate Renewal Project for a demolition contractor under a JCT 2016 design and build form of contract. The Estate Renewal Project has been divided into phases and this requirement is for the demolition of phase 1 with the option to extend for additional phases. Each of the phases also encapsulates a number of options including retaining brick units, removal of ground floor slabs, pile probing etc.; for more information please see the specification.
Westminster City Council reserves the right to decide at its sole discretion (on the grounds next listed) whether to proceed or not with any of the subsequent phases following phase 1.
Grounds: adopting alternative routes to delivering the project; lack of required approvals/consents or funding not secured for subsequent phases; performance of the contractor/failure to complete a previous phase or as otherwise provided for in the contract.
The demolition will include all adjacent storage outbuildings, raised planters, external stairs and bin store walls within each area.
The works include soft strip and complete structural demolition of the buildings down to existing ground floor slab levels, with removal and capping off of existing services as ground floor level as a base requirements.
There are additional options to be priced including retaining the brick units, demolition of ground floor slabs and pile probing (please see the specification for more details).
The approximate value of the requirement ranges from 3 000 000 GBP — 13 000 000 GBP (indexed) from mandatory demolition of phase 1 to all phases and options. The initial appointment is for phase 1 only.
Westminster City Council will observe a standstill period following the award of the contract and conduct itself in respect of any appeals in accordance with the Public Contract Regulations 2015.
