Through a restricted procedure Kirklees Council is looking to enter into a contract with an economic operator to deliver the detailed design and construction of the Phase 1 works for the Cultural Heart Programme. The successful economic operator will initially be appointed by Kirklees Council via the Pre-Construction Services Agreement (PCSA) forming part of the Procurement Documents. The design and price will develop concurrently during the delivery of the PCSA Services and will conclude with the finalisation and agreement of a JCT Design and Build Contract 2016 with amendments as set out in the Procurement Documents.

Total Quantity or Scope

Scope of Works for Phase 1: Phase 1 of the Cultural Heart programme comprises the part demolition and redevelopment of the former Queensgate Market Hall (Grade II Listed) and surrounding area to form a new library, commercial food hall, outdoor events space and improved University links. These works will also require localised adaptation of the existing services tunnels, located below the Queensgate market and Piazza Shopping Centre below and all associated service infrastructure. Public realm works will also be required between buildings and the event space. Within the above works the Market Hall is proposed to be sensitively adapted, refurbished and extended in order to provide accommodation for a new library and commercial food hall. Proposed works to existing buildings include demolition, with exposure of the existing market column and roof structure, and an extension to form the new library. In addition sections of the existing Piazza shopping centre, considered of lesser quality, are to be demolished as part of the works in order to create the events square. The above scope of works and services is a broad categorisation rather than exhaustive. Bidders should assume that the works and services actually required will broadly be within the scope listed above but will also include extensions to related or ancillary works and services. The actual scope of works and services required may also be narrower than that set out above. The procurement is intended to cover the scope of the arrangement as set out in this notice and the accompanying procurement documents, available as set out in Section 1.3. Please also note that the estimated contract value is based on the value of the works. The final value of the works and services will depend on the scope of the final services required and bidders should presume that this value will cover the works and services listed and those ancillary to the principal works and services required on a project of a comparable scale (including any extensions of scope set out in this notice). To help to ensure that sufficient interest in the contract will be generated, the services being procured will not be divided into separate lots. Additional information: Duration in months: 25 months (PCSA 5 months, construction contract 20 months). This is the estimated duration for the contract. The actual duration of the contract will be the length of time needed to deliver the scope as outlined at II.2.4, which may exceed 25 months.
