Competition: University of Manchester framework

University of Manchester
  • Comment

The University of Manchester has announced a new £60 million consultancy services framework

The agreement will run for four years and is divided into 13 lots, including architectural services on projects below £2 million and architectural services on projects valued at between £2 million and £10 million.

The five teams selected for each lot will have the opportunity to work on a range of projects planned for the university’s city-centre campuses as part of its ongoing £1 billion regeneration.

In its brief, the university says it ‘wishes to establish a construction consultancy services framework consisting of a number of disciplines.

‘In order to appoint suitable suppliers for this purchase, we are undertaking a competitive tender under the Public Contracts Regulations 2015 (SI 2015 No 102) using the restricted procedure. It is envisaged that a maximum of five suppliers will be appointed to each lot; this will mean a maximum of 65 suppliers across the entire framework.

The University of Manchester was established in 2004 following the merger of the Victoria University of Manchester and the University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology. In 2012, the university announced a decade-long regeneration programme which would see £1 billion invested in its city centre estate.

Current projects include a refurbishment of the main university library by Ryder, due to complete later this year; an upgrade of the Manchester Museum by Purcell; and a new £350 million engineering complex by Mecanoo.

Three years ago, Balfour Beatty, Laing O’Rourke and Sir Robert McAlpine were appointed to a separate framework to deliver the majority of projects valued at more than £10 million included within the regeneration masterplan.

The latest framework is divided into several lots covering services such as architecture, project management, cost consultancy, building surveying, clerk of works, structural engineering, and mechanical and electrical engineering.

The deadline for applications is midday, 5 March.
