Extended Description

Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust (the Trust) is the NHS Trust responsible for the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Woolwich, London (the Hospital). There is an existing PFI arrangement at the Hospital with Meridian Hospital Company PLC (MHC) and maintenance at the Hospital is provided by Vinci Construction UK Ltd. The Trust is seeking to procure extensive infrastructure works at the Hospital, with a particular focus on the Hospital's mechanical and electrical systems. The Trust anticipates that the construction programme will span approximately twenty one (21) months with a value of approximately GBP 30 000 000 for the construction works. In view of the existing PFI arrangement, the Trust will appoint MHC to carry out the works under a variation to the PFI arrangement. The Trust requires that the works themselves be procured via a compliant procurement procedure following which the Trust and MHC have agreed MHC will appoint the successful bidder to carry out the works. The infrastructure works are required in order to bring the Hospital into compliance with applicable Health Building Notes and Health Technical Memoranda, as well as current good practice. The works are expected to include:

(a) existing energy centre re-configuration with new plant provision;

(b) new LV electrical distribution up to the local distribution boards;

(c) new Second VIE installation with medical gas provision;

(d) new air handling plant and ductwork to critical areas such as theatres, pathology, special care baby unit (SCBU) and the delivery suite;

(e) builder’s work.

Interested organisations should note that the Hospital must remain open throughout the works, and the successful contractor will be expected to demonstrate experience of working on ‘live’ clinical sites, as well as suitable proposals as to how to carry out the works to minimise disruption to the Hospital.

The design for the works has been progressed to RIBA Stage 3A. The successful contractor will be appointed by MHC under a pre-construction services agreement (PCSA) on the basis of the contractor's preliminaries, costs for the PCSA period, overheads and profit and an elemental forecast summary of the contract price.

Under the PCSA the contractor will develop the design and tender the works packages in order to determine the final contract price for the works. DSSR was employed by the Trust as the Consulting Engineers on the project and developed the design to its current position. DSSR employed Floyd Slaski Architects and Campbell Reith Structural Engineers as sub-consultants. DSSR’s commission has ended at Stage 3A. The successful contractor has a choice whether to engage with DSSR to continue to develop the design or select an alternative design team.

On successful completion of the PCSA activities, MHC intends to enter into the construction contract for the works with the successful contractor. The works will be carried out under an amended form of the NEC4 engineering and construction contract, Option C with a guaranteed maximum price. More information will be set out in the tender documents.

The Trust envisages shortlisting 5 SQ applicants to the tender stage of the competitive tendering process with a further shortlisting exercise expected to take place with a view to inviting up to 3 bidders to participate in the subsequent dialogue stage(s) of the competition. Further detail on the approach that the Trust will adopt for the future public procurement exercise will be confirmed in the tender documents.
