The London Borough of Harrow has launched a new three-year construction services framework
Teams chosen for the agreement running from 2019-2022 will have the opportunity to work on a range of refurbishment and restoration projects within the north-west London borough.
The framework is divided into six lots covering: construction, design and management coordinators; building surveying, asset management, property, and related services; measured surveys; quantity surveying; employer’s agents; and architects and design teams.
In its brief, the council says the framework ‘will provide professional services to arrange of refurbishment that the council is undertaking. This will include projects where the council is changing the use of a building or where disused buildings are being brought back into use.’
‘Allocation of work amongst the contractors on the framework will include mini-competition for those projects where the value of the project, on which the relevant professional service is required, is over £25,000. Where the project to which the service will apply has a value that is below £25,000, the authority will make a direct award from the framework based on the lowest prices at tender stage.’
It expects to spend around £1 million every year from 2019 to 2022 on services through the latest framework. Three teams will be selected for each lot.
Projects to be covered by the framework include municipal offices, depots, schools, car parks, park buildings, libraries, cafés, community centres, and residential structures.
Bids to join the framework will be evaluated 50 per cent on quality and 50 per cent on cost.
The deadline for applications is midday, 11 January.
