This tender pack has been produced as a means of selecting and appointing a Project Manager and Cost Consultant to undertake the described work in connection with the completion of the Storage project. In short, the project comprises: Lot 1 – New Build project • The design of a new building, of approximate gross internal floor area of 1,200 square metres, to accommodate storage of paper collections • The building is expected to be a simple rectangular form, single storey with some additional storage via mezzanine. Architectural design will require the building to be sympathetic to nearby buildings and setting, and will be informed by PD 5454 • Internal environmental conditions will need to meet the specific requirements of the Collections Management department which are expected to be to a ‘dry basic’ standard (160-250 C, 40-60%RH). The approach will be to design an effective building envelope to minimise the use of heating, venting and cooling systems thereby minimising energy consumption Lot 2 – Conversion Project Building 104 • This project requires the conversion/partial upgrading and conversion of an existing building. The existing building is a storage shed of standard Air ministry type, with approximate overall dimensions 18m by 45m and height to eaves of 5.0m. The building has a double pitched concrete tile roof supported on angle iron trusses, with intermediate support via steel beams and columns. External walls on the long elevation are made up with a series of metal sliding doors to provide access for its use originally as a vehicle storage shed • Conversion work will involve little in the way of structural or alteration work, but will essentially provide a well-insulated and environmentally stable ‘box’ within the existing building envelope • Internal environmental conditions will need to meet the specific requirements of the Collections Management Department (as noted above) The two projects are unlikely to progress at the same time. The new build project is likely to take longer in design, and to obtain statutory consents. It is anticipated work will commence initially with the new build project, with design commencing on the refurbishment once the new build design has reached a point where formal consents for planning can be submitted. The construction phase for each project similarly is unlikely to occur at the same time – the extent and type of work is different for each, and it is anticipated there will be two separate contracts for the construction phase.
