Hackney Council has launched a major new £20 million construction consultancy services framework
The agreement will run for four years and is divided into 14 lots, including architect-led multidisciplinary services and SME-friendly architectural services worth up to £7 million each.
The five teams selected for each lot will have the opportunity to work on a range of projects planned by the north London local authority which runs services for more than 270,000 local residents. Separate lots will recruit project managers, planning consultants and creative design experts.
In its brief, the council says: ‘The scope of the procurement exercise requires the successful tenderers to: make sure Hackney Council is high performing and efficient; ensure best price and best value practice is achieved for Hackney; provide a safe, reliable and efficient service for Hackney; and show an innovative partnering approach to working with Hackney Council.’
The London borough was formed in 1965 following the merger of Hackney, Stoke Newington and Shoreditch councils. The area hosted several venues for the London 2012 Olympics and has witnessed massive regeneration in recent decades.
In February, the council launched a search for a design team for a major restoration of the disused Abney Park Cemetery in north-east London.
The latest framework will invite up to 10 shortlisted teams to tender for each lot. Bids will be evaluated 60 per cent on quality and 40 per cent on cost.
The deadline for applications is midday, 10 May.
