Masterplan for Newport Harbour
The Isle of Wight council is seeking expressions of interest leading to an Invitation to Tender process to appoint a commercially-led multidisciplinary team to produce a Masterplan of the Newport Harbour site. This should be commensurate with RIBA Stages 0-2.
The council is seeking:
— validation of the site vision and objectives,
— a comprehensive Analysis of the site and a set of Masterplan Principles,
— a detailed options appraisal for the development site,
— a Masterplan that includes the proposed development site and the whole public realm including highways adjacent to the site,
— a Masterplan that recognises and is compatible with the wider ambition for regeneration in Newport,
— a Masterplan that is in a format that could subsequently be used as a Supplementary Planning Document,
— design and development parameters for individual sites to be identified to be integrated into the overall site Masterplan,
— consultation and engagement with local communities, businesses and stakeholders to be delivered in partnership with the Council’s engagement functions,
— a clear and practical Phasing and Delivery Plan for the Masterplan,
— a meanwhile strategy and projects that can be implemented on site as development is delivered.
The lead consultant will be expected to act as project manager and client-interface, and to procure and manage the sub-consultant team.
A Potential Supplier must first pass all of the pass / fail questions within the Standard Questionnaire. The Authority will then evaluate the scored questions in accordance with the scoring methodology and weightings outlined in the Standard Questionnaire Instructions to. The Authority will then invite the top 8 scoring Potential Suppliers to participate in the Tender stage of this procurement process. In the event of a tie in 8th position then both Potential Suppliers will be invited to bid giving a shortlist of 9. Should less than 8 Potential Suppliers apply to be shortlisted then the Authority reserves the right to invite those contractors who have passed the pass/fail questions to bid.
Before finalising the shortlist, where relevant, Potential Suppliers will be asked to submit their evidence to support their ‘Self Certified’ answers (i.e. insurance, company account etc.). If a Potential Supplier fails to meet the minimum criteria at this stage, they will not be invited to participate in the Tender stage of the procurement process and the Authority reserves the right to bring the next highest scoring Potential Supplier on to the shortlist.
The contract will be for a period of 1 year with the option to extend for a further period of up to 6 months at the sole discretion of the Authority.
