The Hereford Centre for Cyber Security will be a 3-storey building providing 2,245m2 gross floor space and will be located on S11Plot, Skylon Park Enterprise Zone in Hereford.

The Centre will allow the University to build upon the academic and research expertise it brings in IT innovation and cyber-related fields, becoming a leader in the field of Cyber Security related areas, through advanced research and engagement with business operating in the field of Cyber Innovation. The Centre will allow Herefordshire businesses to utilise University of Wolverhampton expertise and networks.

The goals of The Centre are to:

— Provide a testing facility for Internet & Global Information Grid research,

— Facilitate the scientific use of cyber testing methods,

— Develop and deploy state of the art cyber testing capabilities,

— Provide a virtual environment for quantitative, qualitative and realistic assessment of potentially ground breaking cyber technologies for research and ongoing development.

In order to allow this Contract to be used for potential Funded projects we are notifying all tenderers that some works might be subject to part funding by, for example, the European Structural and Investment Funds Growth Programme for England (2014-2020) or any other European Union Funded Programme, or other Funding Body. This particular contract may be funded from LEP, and/or ERDF, or any other funding streams identified.

The construction value for the project will be circa £6 million. The form of contract will be the JCT 2011 Design and Build Contract with client amendments. The successful bidder will be required to enter into a Pre-Construction Services Agreement to develop the design to completion of RIBA Stage 4.

Design is due to be developed to RIBA Stage 3 in terms of Mechanical & Electrical and RIBA Stage 2 in terms of Architectural and Structural. The design information will be issued at Stage 1 ITT.

It is the University's intention to novate the following design consultants across to the successful Contractor on the formation of Contract: Architect/Principal Designer, Structural/Civil, Acoustician, Landscape Architect. Mechanical and Electrical design consultant will be retained by the Client.

The Qualification section will be assessed on a pass/fail basis in accordance with the standard qualification questions implemented by PAS 91.
