Competition: South Cambridgeshire housing

  • Comment

South Cambridgeshire District Council is seeking three architects for a framework covering £50 million worth of housing developments

The winning trio of architect-led teams will participate in a series of mini-competitions for up 20 small and medium sized sites earmarked for new residential development by the local authority.

Each site is expected to host up to 30 mixed-tenure homes. The framework will also deliver a further 50 to 100 plots for self-build homes.

The council’s brief says the design teams will ‘provide a full design and management service’ and ‘will be required to review development opportunities on a number of sites, to take the projects through from the feasibility stage to build completion, occupation and final completion of the projects. The actual construction contracts are likely to be based on Design and Build.’

The rural district of South Cambridgeshire has a population of 153,000 and covers 90,000ha and 102 villages surrounding the city of Cambridge (pictured). Local attractions include the Grade I-listed Wimpole Hall and Imperial War Museum Duxford. 

The contract is planned to run for at least three years with an option to extend a further year, covering design services from RIBA stage 0 to 3 and occasionally RIBA Stage 4.

Bids will be assessed 70 per cent on quality and 30 per cent on cost. Applicants must have at least £5 million of employers liability insurance, £5 million of public liability insurance and £5 million of professional indemnity insurance.

The deadline for applications is 1pm, 20 March.
