CP1726-19 ZEBCat — DCC — Great Moor House
Devon County Council is looking to procure a capital works contractor to deliver a solution which meets the specification. Tenderers have the option of including renewables measures through a PPA and lease. These will be supplied with the ITT and tender responses will be required to include signed and completed PPA and lease if relevant to their solution.
This is a fixed price contract of 410 000 GBP.
As part of the European Regional Development Fund supported Zero Energy Building Catalyst (ZEBCat) DCC is tendering for a deep retrofit solution for our second largest office building, Great Moor House. We are keen to see an ambitious solution including thermal fabric improvements, further decarbonisation of energy supply and internal environment quality improvements that will act as an exemplar for future projects.
This tender is part of DCCs ambition to deliver deep retrofits (> 20 % energy reduction) and incorporating non-energy benefits into business cases. We see these extra benefits as increase in staff productivity from healthier building environments and also reduction in maintenance costs. DCC is conducting pre-feasibility assessments of its corporate estate to determine the potential for further deep retrofits to deliver cost savings and meet the council’s declaration of a climate emergency.
A key aspect of this tender is that the solution must deliver a least a 40 % reduction in total grid supplied energy (electricity and/or gas) over a year, equating to 631 219 kWh. This key performance indicator will not be based on meter readings but a “desk-top” analysis by the winning tenderer of the solutions technical performance using technology/material manufacturer specifications. Since the start of the ZEBCat programme there have been some energy efficiency improvements to Great Moor House totalling 51 845 kWh per year and these can be included in the tenderers response. A cost-saving guarantee is required for the first 3 years in partnership with independent monitoring and verification. DCC will include Power Purchase Agreements and leases for any renewables or energy storage solution that the tenderer would like to provide outside of the capital payment.
The tender is fixed-price and needs to be delivered by January 2020 at the latest.
A Market Engagement Day will be hold on the Wednesday, 22.3.2019.
