Ageing Society and Clean Growth Grand Challenge Home of 2030 Design Competition: Design and Delivery Partner
BEIS seeks a lead partner to develop and deliver a national design competition for the Home of 2030. The aim of this project is to engage industry and the public around a vision of the building of tomorrow — addressing gaps in the current market, for housing that is energy efficient, suitable for changing needs across a lifetime, good value and scalable. This project was announced by the energy minister Claire Perry at Green GB Week 2018.
BEIS require a delivery partner who has varied and broad development industry, professional and academic connections, with experience in bringing together disparate consortia to solve challenges in order to have the transformational impact required of this project.
Elements of the work outlined can be subcontracted by the lead delivery partner, but the lead delivery partner will have overall responsibility for the delivery of work.
— research: the delivery partner will need to conduct a study drawing in qualitative and quantitative evidence on the barriers and opportunities for innovation in the sector,
— engagement: we want the sector and the wider public to coalesce around an exercise that develops and promotes a vision for the home of the future. The delivery partner will oversee work — using the hook of the design competition — to promote to communicate this vision to different groups with different perspectives, and encourage value added collaborations within the sector and wider public,
— competition: the delivery partner will need to provide or draw in design and technical expertise — providing skills and resources to help shape the brief, provide insights from research and assist with the evaluation of designs,
— programme management: the programme lead must be skilled in programme management to ensure diverse work strands are delivered on time and to specification.
To provide prospective suppliers with the opportunity to gain more detail on the project, BEIS are holding a pre-market engagement day at Room C12, Conference Centre, 1 Victoria Street, SW1H 0ET on 21st February from 10:30-15:00.
