Description

The Royal Opera House intends to award two contracts for the provision of works in respect of two projects designed to make significant savings in the energy use of its principle premises at Covent Garden, in London. Contracts will be awarded to separate firms, or as a joint award to a single bidder, depending on the nature of the bids received. The two projects are: 1. Main cooling system energy reduction project. The initial concept utilises one or more high efficiency chillers and thermal storage, to provide for site-wide 24 hour loads, with an energy reduction target of approximately 1.2m kWh per annum. 2. LED lighting and controls energy reduction project. The initial concept envisages the replacement of lamps in all appropriate settings, supplemented (where replacement is not feasible) by new lighting controls, representing an energy reduction target of approximately 940,000 kWh per annum. Together the two projects are planned to reduce the building’s energy use by some 12%. For both projects, detailed designs and specifications are being prepared which are anticipated to be completed by November 2014. These will form the basis of a tender exercise to appoint a contractor to carry out the works. In advance of the tender stage, ESPO, acting on behalf of the Royal Opera House, will conduct a selection process to identify a select tender list which is unlikely to comprise more than three potential bidders. Applications are therefore invited from contractors wishing to be included in the select tender list. The selection process will comprise: i) a pre-qualification process designed to assess contractors’ business suitability, relevant experience, capacity and capabilities; and ii) an assessment of preliminary method statements in which contractors will outline in principle how they would approach the project. It is important that the select tender list include only those contractors who have evidenced their ability to work in an important but challenging historic building located in the heart of London. Note that the building will remain operational throughout the period of the works, and that ensuring minimal disruption to members of the public, performers and artistes, and Opera House staff will be essential. Potential applicants should obtain an application form from ESPO.
