Dublin City Council has announced a new €140 million architectural services framework
Teams chosen for the maximum four-year agreement will have the opportunity to work on a range of new-build and regeneration projects across the local authority’s administrative area with a total estimated construction value of €1.17 billion in total.
The framework is divided into two lots with the first covering schemes worth up to €15 million and the second covering those costing more. The estimated total fees to be spent through the two lots is €7.8 million and €132 million respectively. Applicants may apply for one lot only.
According to the brief, projects could include ‘feasibility studies, masterplanning services, new-build residential projects delivered through traditional contracts, new-build residential projects delivered via Design and Build contracts, area regeneration projects, residential retrofit/refurbishment projects, conservation projects and works to protected structures, small works, public realm and precinct improvements, public buildings etc.
‘The period of the framework agreements will be for a period of one year with an option to extend annually up to a maximum of four years. For the avoidance of doubt, the period for delivery of any contracts awarded under the framework may extend beyond the date of expiry of the framework agreement.’
Dublin City Council’s development plan aims to deliver around 29,500 new homes by 2022. Each lot in the new framework will be established on the foot of a new-build residential development contract.
The first lot will open with the residential redevelopment of a 0.5ha greenfield site on Slademore Avenue in Donaghmede. The second will initially focus on the regeneration of the 2.46ha Cromcastle Court estate on Kilmore Road.
The deadline for applications is midday, 17 December
