II.1.5) Short description of the contract or purchase(s)

Expressions of interest are invited to appoint a lead consultant and integrated design team for the full renovation of the University’s existing biological sciences building on Woodland Road in Bristol. The building is grade 2 listed and forms part of the historic grouping of buildings that includes the Wills Memorial Building and Tower on Park St and the Geographical Sciences building, which fronts University Road. The building currently provides accommodation for the school of biological sciences as well as a library and centrally timetabled teaching rooms and is partially occupied by the School of Geographical Sciences. The exact boundaries between adjoining buildings overlap in some areas. Surveys are being undertaken and all relevant information will be provided in the invitation to tender (ITT) stage that will follow the prequalification stage. The University wishes to plan for the full renovation and remodelling of the biological sciences building and its environs, based upon a core requirement to provide an outstanding and modern home for the Department of Mathematics. It should be appropriate for a department which is in the top handful of departments in the UK and which has world-leading research groups in many areas of mathematics.The University therefore has a strong desire to renovate the building to do full justice to the original design and to ensure that it can continue to play its role as a part of the group of adjacent buildings around which so much of the University’s history revolves. The University seeks a minimum BREEAM Excellent rating and Energy Certification B on this project. The Lead Consultant will be responsible for all technical design aspects of the project including but not limited to architecture, M&E Services, civil and structural engineering, acoustics, fire engineering, landscape and transport and will be awarded to a single entity. CDMC Services and construction phase commissioning are excluded from the lead consultancy scope of services, as these will be direct appoints by the university from its professional services frameworks. Although no firm decision has yet been confirmed the University currently envisages that the Lead Consultant’s appointment will be made between the project manager and the lead consultant, as it is the University procurement norm to appoint the project manager as the sole consultant. The required services can be provided by one organisation or can be provided by a group of individual consultants who are separately appointed by the Lead Consultant. The University currently envisages that the project will follow a single stage develop and construct procurement route using the NEC 3 form of works contract with design typically been take to RIBA stage D or D+ with more detailed design being carried out on specialist elements or where there is a specifically User/University defined functional requirement. While the Lead Consultant will initially be appointed to carry out the feasibility study, (University Stage 0), it is envisaged that the successful team will be retained to develop the design and complete the project, subject to the necessary funding being available. The University currently envisages that the Lead Consultant and Design Team will be novated to the successful works contractor. Interested parties must request the pre qualification questionnaire by e-mail to: . This must be returned to the same e-mail address by the deadline specified in Section IV.3.4.
