Competition: Cadw framework

Dolwyddelan Castle, Conwy
  • Comment

The Welsh government’s heritage wing, Cadw, has announced a £4 million construction consultancy services framework

Teams selected for the maximum four-year agreement will have the opportunity to work on a range of projects with the organisation, which manages 129 monuments across Wales including prehistoric settlements, Roman forts, medieval castles, chapels and huge Victorian industrial sites.

Planned upgrades include the conservation and management of ancient monuments and the design, maintenance and repair of visitor facilities. The seven lots cover architecture, structural engineering, mechanical and electrical engineering, quantity surveying, civil engineering, building surveying, and ecology and biodiversity.

In its brief, Cadw says that it ‘requires the specialist skills and knowledge of a range of conservation consultancy services … The services within the framework will cover architectural, structural engineering, mechanical and electrical engineering, quantity surveying, civil engineering, building surveying and ecology/biodiversity.’

Cadw is the historic environment service of the Welsh government and part of the devolved administration’s tourism and culture division. Its sites include the Pentre Ifan Neolithic dolmen in Pembrokeshire, the 13th-century Dolwyddelan Castle (pictured), and the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The latest framework comes three years after Cadw abandoned contest-winning proposals by George King Architects for an Iron Ring artwork following a protest against the ‘disrespectful’ monument branded an ‘insult to Wales’.

Bids will be evaluated 60 per cent on quality and 40 per cent on cost. The deadline for applications is 4pm on 11 March.
