0575 Rocheway Construction Works.
The Authority is seeking expressions of interest to appoint a suitably qualified and experienced main contractor for the purpose of residential conversion and construction of new build residential development at Rocheway in Rochford.
Essex Housing (a function hosted by Essex County Council on behalf of public sector partners) has an opportunity for a Construction Contractor at Rocheway in Rochford. The combined wider site is owned freehold by Essex County Council and in total covers 7.49 acres (3.033 Ha). The Rocheway development site is currently occupied by a vacant former Adult Community Learning (ACL) centre building and ancillary space (which was decommissioned in July 2015), and, has an overall development area of 2.55 acres (1.033 Ha). The proposed development has been considered by Full Planning Application (Ref No's: 17/00102/FUL and supplementary application 17/00907/FUL) as part of a larger scheme, but will be progressed as two separate construction delivery phases. Phase 1 (1.22 Acres or 0.494 Ha) — 14 No. residential dwellings for private sale with associated external and enabling works, and, Phase 2 (1.33 Acres or 0.529 Ha) — The Independent Living scheme of 60 apartments and external/ancillary works (which will be progressed as a separate project to phase 1). The remaining rear 4.94 acres (2.0 Ha) is presently used as open space/playing fields under licence.
This tender process is for Phase 1 only and includes: Under a single stage design and build lump sum contract (JCT D&B) the Works generally consist of the safe asbestos removal, demolition and site clearance of predominantly the whole site (Phase 1 and 2 areas), and, the construction of 14 new residential dwellings (for private sale) together with associated external works (including planning, landscaping and fencing) services, drainage, private roads, electrical sub stations and adoptable roads and sewers etc. Certain Works under this Contract (such as demolition, access roads, services and drainage) will also facilitate later construction and occupation of the adjacent phase 2 delivery of the Independent Living scheme. The Contractor is also advised that it is likely that the construction of the Independent Living scheme (which will be subject of a separate tender exercise) will commence prior to the completion of Works under this contract. The Phase 1 Works are to be undertaken in ‘Section's’, which are fully described under the Clause headed ‘Amplifications of the Conditions of Contract’. The Contractor is required to construct the Works in the sequence detailed under that Clause:
Section 1A (14 weeks from date of possession) — Temporary access and parking formation, bat mitigation and demolitions,
Section 1B (26 weeks from date of possession) — The design and construction of adoptable roads and sewers, 2 electricity substations, surface water drainage attenuation and accesses, and
Section 2 (52 weeks from completion of section 1A) — The design and construction of 14 dwellings for sale, together with the remainder of the Works.
