The Contracting Authority is establishing a single provider "Manufacturer-led" framework to deliver small artificial grass pitches (AGP) and associated works (including enabling works for the provision of a modular changing room and/or accessible WC by others). The Provider will enter into a Framework Agreement under the Association of Consultant Architects (ACA), Framework Alliance Contract, FAC-1. Applicants who are successfully awarded grants by the Contracting Authority will enter into a Call-Off contract under the JCT Design & Build Contract 2016 to design, supply and install the facility. Most applicants for funding will be primary schools and it is anticipated that whilst the school holiday period will be the optimum time to carry out works, due to the potential volume of work, all year round delivery will be required. A Framework Managing Consultant (FMC) will be appointed separately and will prepare designs to RIBA Plan of Work Stage 2: Concept Design and obtain planning permission for each project. The Provider will then develop the design through RIBA Plan of Work stages, 3: Developed Design to 4: Technical Design and then install the pitch, including all associated works and services.
