Architectual Services including Town Planning Advisory Services — RIBA Stages 0 to 2 inclusive
HS1's Commercial Team generates many ideas. To test and visualise those ideas and explore options, HS1 requires the following architectural masterplanning services:
RIBA Stage 0 - Strategic Definition.
RIBA Stage 1 - Preparation and Brief.
RIBA Stage 2 - Concept Design.
The services required could range from:
— providing computer generated images of possible street scapes at St Pancras International Station,
— advising on the creation of additional retail space,
— advising on the reconfiguration of internal station layouts and extensions,
— advising HS1 on third party masterplanning proposals at Ebbsfleet and supporting HS1 in proposing its own masterplanning solutions,
— advising on the planning implications of proposed development options.
After the 3 year duration of the contract, this may be renewed for an additional 12 months at the discretion of the Employer.
Objective criteria for choosing the limited number of candidates:
Participants who express an interest in this opportunity will be required to complete and submit a Pre-Qualification Questionnaire. Following the evaluation of PQQ returns, the five (5) top scoring bidders will automatically pre-qualify and will be shortlisted to the ITT Stage. Further bidders will also pre-qualify if they achieve within 1% of the fifth (5th ranked) bidder.
General Practice Surveying (including Development, Appraisals and Valuation)
HS1's land and stations follow the HS1 rail corridor from St Pancras International through to Stratford, Ebbsfleet and Ashford stations to the Channel Tunnel. HS1's Head of Property and Masterplanning and the Planning Consent Manager have identified sites in the Kings Cross and Ebbsfleet area which could be appropriate for redevelopment. HS1 works closely with London Continental Railways (LCR) (which is SoSfT development adviser) in bringing these sites to the market. LCR and HS1 tend not to use marketing agents but HS1 wishes to be able to readily procure agents if that policy changes. On a previous project HS1 has procured property consultants to advise on sales values in the Stratford area. Future programmes may require development appraisal advice being provided to HS1.
Within the area around Ebbsfleet International Station, there are proposals being led by The Ebbsfleet Development Corporation and the local land owners (Land Securities, Anglo American and Lafarge Holcim) to regenerate the Ebbsfleet area. There is also a scheme being prepared by London Resort Company Holdings to create a leisure report in the Swanscombe Peninsula. HS1's car parking will be affected by these proposals. HS1 is willing to support the regeneration and is keen to ensure that it receives a commercial benefit in doing so. Therefore, HS1 envisages that it will need property consultants to support it in negotiations with the Landowners and LRCH, when the negotiation stages is reached. This could include development appraisals, alternative use valuations and sales values advice.
HS1 is seeking to appoint property consultations on to the Framework who have residential and commercial market knowledge of the areas within the HS1 rail corridor and can provide the following services:
— agency — Predominantly land disposal for redevelopment;
— building Consultancy;
— development Appraisals - residential, affordable housing, commercial and hotels and leisure;
— market research and forecasting;
— party Wall — Advice on responding to Party Wall Notices;
— general Rating Advice;
— valuation including Red book valuations, (Existing Use Valuations — for rail operational land — which are then used for taxaction purposes).
Quantity Surveying and Cost Consultancy
HS1 does not have in-house cost consultants. It therefore requires quantity surveyors to advise on build costs to be adopted in options for station redesigns and development appraisals for rail operational sites that could be redeveloped.
Within the area around Ebbsfleet International Station, there are proposals being led by the Ebbsfleet Development Corporation and the local land owners (Land Securities, Anglo American and Lafarge Holcim) to regenerate the Ebbsfleet area. There is also a scheme being prepared by London Resort Company Holdings (LRCH) to create a leisure resort in the Swanscombe Peninsula. HS1’s car parking will be affected by these proposals. HS1 is willing to support the regeneration and is keen to ensure that it receives a commercial benefit in doing so. Therefore, HS1 envisages that it will need cost consultants to estimate the costs or relocating its surface car parking and support it in negotiations with the landowners and LRCH, when the negotiation stage is reached.
Road Traffic Modelling and Pedestrian Flow Modelling
Within the area around Ebbsfleet International Station, there are proposals being led by the Ebbsfleet Development Corporation and the local land owners (Land Securities, Anglo American and Lafarge Holcim) to regenerate the Ebbsfleet area. There is also a scheme being prepared by London Resort Company Holdings to create a leisure resort in the Swanscombe Peninsula. These proposals will affect the roads feeding HS1's car parking and the pedestrian flows within Ebbsfleet International Station. Generally HS1 may require road traffic modelling analysis of any proposed development around its car parks to ensure that access is not compromised.
