UCL East will be delivered in phases across two adjacent sites — Marshgate and Pool Street. Phase 1 of the UCL East development will see developments on both Marshgate and Pool Street. This Procurement is for design services for Phase 1 of Pool Street. UCL are running a separate Procurement for design services for Phase 1 of Marshgate.
The purpose of this Procurement is to appoint a Consultant, comprising a multi-disciplinary design team, to undertake the development of the project brief and undertake RIBA Plan of Work Stages Two ‘Concept’ and Three ‘Developed’ for Phase 1 of the Pool Street development at UCL East, including the design of the associated external landscape, public realm and infrastructure. The appointed Consultant will also need to prepare procurement documentation for the purpose of the procurement of a construction contractor.
The Consultant will be responsible for progressing the design of Pool Street (Phase 1) up to an advanced RIBA Plan of Work Stage Three (Developed) — the design will be used to secure Reserved Matters Approval for Phase 1 of the Pool Street development and form part of the procurement documents for the appointment of a construction (and design) contractor.
UCL, as Contracting Authority, reserves the right to extend the scope of the Consultant to include RIBA Plan of Work Stage 4 and/or RIBA Plan of Work Stages 4, 5 and 6 and/or to retain the Consultant to ‘monitor’ the appointed construction contractor’s design development and construction works.
UCL also reserves the right to novate the Consultant (as described in the PQQ documentation).
