The client is seeking a master planner and a strategic architect to advise on the following:
- master planning,
- initial design for the Phase One Workshops; and,
- on-going architectural advice and design services including strategic advice and an on-going monitoring role.
It is envisaged that the strategic role and architectural advice, design services and the on-going monitoring role will operate on an “as required” basis over a 4 year period (with an option for the client to extend the appointment by up to an additional 2 years).
The client anticipates the supplier undertaking the initial design for phase 1 (up to RIBA stage C) and then the client is intending to appoint a design and build contractor to complete the design work, obtain any planning permission and undertake the construction work. The client envisages the supplier undertaking a support role alongside the client particularly in terms of ensuring continuity of design with other areas on the client’s Tavistock Place campus. The client does not currently envisage the design for phase 1 being novated to the design and build contractor.
