GBC VH Walnut Bridge Construction to the Council’s Design- 2nd Iteration SE Shared Services Tender Closes 22nd March

Guildford Borough Council, working closely with Surrey County Council and with funding from the M3 Local Enterprise Partnership wishes to replace Walnut Bridge in the centre of Guildford. The existing bridge is narrow and has a western entrance that is ‘hidden’ within an existing building, so that only those with local knowledge know of the bridge’s presence. A new bridge structure will also act as a catalyst for the regeneration of the Bedford Wharf site. This pedestrian and cycle bridge forms a vital link between the Railway Station and the Town Centre. 
The bridge forms a key component of the Guildford Town Centre Transport Package, with the remaining funding workstream from the M3 LEP secured in March 2016. 

The Council invites applications from suitably qualified operators and supply chains to build the Council’s design for the bridge.

In compliance with the Public Contracts Regulations 2015, the Council has published full details of its selection questionnaire (SQ) and ultimate documentation concerning tenders to be returned. For the avoidance of doubt only the SQ/ PAS 91 return is required in the first instance and the deadline for the return of this document is the 22nd March 2019 at 12 Noon.

Please read carefully the provisions concerning anti- collusion.

Please note the requirement to provide full details of your supply chain in your SQ return including the steel fabrication provider and the piling services provider you propose to use

The top 5 highest scoring firms on capability who are compliant in all respects (in, for example, health and safety matters) will then be invited to tender.

Upon request the Service Providers will be required to work alongside HMRC Staff based in London, Nottingham and Manchester, in the development and implementation of an organisational plan, which will change the organisational design of HMRC along with its culture and values.

The requirements for this framework (Phase 3) are of a size that will adequately allow SMEs to bid as part of a single lot format. 

In addition the overall value of the framework is £100k and it is likely that individual ‘Call Offs’ from the framework will be of a value of less than £10k and therefore the framework will be most suited to SME and Micro businesses. 

The intention is to run the Framework for a 12 month period.
