This framework is intended for appointed suppliers to provide comprehensive developer services ranging from planning consents, construction design, contractor procurement, management, to marketing and disposal. There may be calls for further competition throughout the course of the framework, where eligible contracting authorities may also raise jobs for independent development services to facilitate a project, such as architecture, or generating schemes for the procurement of contractors.
The types of projects covered by this Framework could include residential development and housing; emergency accommodation for displaced families and individuals; other public buildings including libraries; institutional premises including universities and colleges; commercial projects; entertainment complexes; urban and city centre regeneration; industrial and mixed use developments; retail, leisure, educational development; as well as associated infrastructure.
A list of eligible contracting authorities that may use this framework is available with the procurement documents, which will be published with the ITT. It includes central government departments and their arm’s length bodies and agencies, non-departmental public bodies, NHS bodies, local authorities, registered providers, health, police, fire and rescue, education, charities and devolved administrations.
This contract opportunity is not divided into lots. Although services may be drawn down on an independent basis, developers are expected to provide a range of comprehensive solutions as may be required to manage and facilitate the development process from start to finish. Any organisation, or consortium, can apply to be a supplier if they can deliver all of the required services. These are listed below:
• Building Surveying
