Hertsmere advertises architectural framework

  • Comment

Hertsmere Borough Council is seeking architects for a number of residential schemes in Borehamwood and the surrounding area

Architects chosen for the three-year framework will have the opportunity to work on a range of housing, commercial and other schemes expected to be worth up to £500,000 in fees.

The first sites in the council’s development pipeline will have a construction value of between £2.5 million and £3 million

The contract notice says: ‘The successful contractors will undertake services on a wide range of projects such as commercial, residential, public realm and leisure and community.

‘The council has agreed a development programme for a number of sites that it owns, at present it is anticipated that the majority of these will be used for residential development, although there maybe commercial development projects as well.’

Three teams will be selected for the framework on a ‘cascade’ system where contracts will first be offered to a preferred architectural team. If the team is unable to meet the project requirements, the offer will then passed on to the second bidder for consideration and then, if necessary, to the third-place bidder.

The chosen architect will sketch outline proposals for each site, agree a target mix of dwellings and hold initial consultations with planners.

Hertsmere occupies the historic boundary between Middlesex and Hertfordshire. Its main settlement is Borehamwood (pictured) and other towns include Bushey, Radlett, Potters Bar and Elstree, famous for its film and television studios.

The deadline for applications is 25 November.
