Extended TitleDemolition Works — Multi Contractor Framework — Portsmouth and Sub-Region
Extended Description

Portsmouth City Council — the ‘Authority’ — is inviting tenders for inclusion on a multi contractor Framework Agreement that will be used to let demolition works within Portsmouth and the surrounding sub-regional area. The framework will be open to all Contracting Authorities situated within Hampshire, Isle of Wight, East and West Sussex and Surrey to utilise, however the Authority cannot provide any usage commitments to this effect.

The framework will be established via evaluation of tenders submitted for the demolition of Edinburgh House, approximate value 250 000 GBP with works commencing end of September 2019 and completed late December 2019. The live project will be let using the JCT Minor Works Contract (2016). For details of the scope of works for Edinburgh House and the framework see Section VI.3) Additional Information.

The agreement will run for a period of 4 years with the option to extend by a further 2 years. Once the agreement is established no upper or lower value constraints in respect of project contract values will be set. However, most works will fall between a value range of 20 000 GBP and 300 000 GBP.

Currently the majority of projects are let on the basis of client defined specifications using JCT Minor Works Contract (2016) or NEC4 — Engineering and Construction Short Form Contract. However, The Authority also reserves the right to use the full suite of JCT and NEC3/4 contracts.

There are mandatory requirements for economic and financial standing, such as certification that the Contractor is a going concern. Evidence of health and safety policies is required, such as an accredited SSIP scheme. Demolition contractors are required to have NFDC membership or demonstration of equivalent standards.

Based upon previous demand and its forthcoming capital programme the Authority estimates that it may directly let approx. 1 000 000 GBP to 1 500 000 GBP worth of mechanical project works per annum via the agreement. However, it should be noted that this value may fluctuate in the event of changes in technology, access to funding, legislation, best practice developments and unforeseen emergency situations.

In the event of full take up by all of the Contracting Authorities who will be able to access the agreement spend per annum via the agreement could theoretically be as much as 17 000 000 GBP, however the Authority can provide no guarantees of take up by other Contracting Authorities.

It is proposed that the framework will be subdivided into 2 tiers, being:

— a primary tier consisting of 6 contractors who will engaged to deliver typical projects in terms of scope, approach, value, etc.,

— a secondary tier consisting of a maximum of 4 contractors who may be engaged on a contingency basis and/or invited to submit bids for non-standard works in terms of value, approach, type, geographical area, etc.

The tiers will be established via the evaluation of bids submitted for the live project. The project will be let on an individual basis to the tenderer who achieve the highest score. The contractor plus the next ranking contractors up to a maximum total number of 10 (6 primary and 4 secondary) will be appointed onto the Framework Agreement.

The Authority will let the agreement and associated live project works in accordance with the following programme:
