Springfield University Hospital, 61 Glenburnie Road, Tooting, London, SW17;
Tolworth Hospital, Red Lion Road, Surbiton, Surrey, KT6 7QU.
The Trust wishes to build 2 new mental health facilities. 1 facility, of approximately 25 000 m2 (new build) will be built at the Trust's Springfield University Hospital campus and the 2nd facility (refurbishment of 9 350 m2 and new build of 12 330 m2) will be at the Trust's Tolworth Hospital site at Red Lion Road, Surbiton, Surrey, KT6 7QU.
The Springfield University Hospital campus is a 33 hectare site in the London Borough of Wandsworth. Parts of the existing hospital estate date back to 1840, facing out onto open land that, amongst other things, is currently home to a 9 hole golf course and other sporting facilities. The Trust has outline planning permission from Wandsworth Council for new mental health facilities and ancillary accommodation (reference 2014/6585) in respect of the Springfield site as well as from the Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames (reference 14/10290/OUT) in respect of the Tolworth Site.
The Trust's expectation is that the new hospitals will be funded, in part, by the disposal of other capital assets, but mainly by the redevelopment of surplus land at the Springfield site by a developer or developers for residential use. The existing planning permission is for up to 839 residential dwellings on the Springfield site (including up to 262 dwellings within 2 existing Grade II listed hospital buildings) together with ancillary commercial use.
The Trust wants to appoint a private sector partner (‘Master Developer’) (which could be an individual economic operator or a consortium) to have overall responsibility for the design, build and commissioning of the new hospitals, the provision of all associated infrastructure, the redevelopment of the Springfield site and the discharge of obligations under the associated s106 Agreement.
Both hospitals will continue to provide mental health services throughout and the Master Developer will be responsible for phasing the demolition, new build, refurbishment and infrastructure works in such a way as to enable the Trust to continue to provide its services without interruption. In addition the Master Developer will be responsible for maximising the value that can be achieved from the redevelopment of the Springfield site as each phase of land is released for development. The Springfield planning permission provides for the development of approximately 13 hectares of the site as metropolitan open land — creating the potential not only for an incrementally higher standard of residential development as each phase is developed, but also for a significant number of dwellings to look out upon parkland.
The Trust has no firm view as to what the Master Developer will do or not do in relation to the Springfield site, however it has identified the following as attributes the Master Developer should possess (either itself or through the involvement of a consortium member or key sub-contractor:
Managing large scale development projects and the provision of associated infrastructure;
Delivery of combined heat and power (CHP) facilities and/or other sustainable energy solutions;
Residential development (alternatively experience of preparing and marketing parcels of land for onward sale to sub-developers);
Raising development finance;
Hospital construction (preferably mental health);
Managing a phased decant with no (or minimum) interruption of service provision; and
Sensitive refurbishment/conversion of listed buildings.
This is not to imply that the Master Developer will/will not be required to deliver all the above elements of the Programme. Its role will be developed in dialogue.
There is no residential development associated with the new Tolworth hospital.
The Trust's outline business case for the Programme has been approved by HM Treasury, the Department of Health and NHS England, The award of any contract will be conditional on approval of the Trust's full business case by the relevant bodies.

Requests to participate must be made by completion of a PQQ. The PQQ is available from: www.delta-esourcing.com/tenders/estatemodernisationprogramme/KVHGQ69D9C If you experience any technical difficulty accessing the above URL, please contact the Delta eSourcing help desk by email on: email@example.com or by telephone. +44 8452707050. The PQQ must be returned by 12:00 BST on the date set out at IV.2.2) above.
The Trust reserves the right to accept variant bids. Should the Trust exercise this right the conditions applicable to the submission and/or acceptance of variant bids will be set out in the procurement documents.
The Trust reserves the right to discontinue the procurement process at any time which shall include the right not to award contract(s) and does not bind itself to accept the lowest tender or any tender received and reserves the right to award contract(s) in part, or to call for new tenders should it consider this necessary.
The Trust shall not be liable for any costs or expenses incurred by any candidate in connection with the completion and return of the information requested in this contract notice, or in participating in this procurement process, irrespective of the outcome of the competition or if the competition is cancelled or postponed.
All dates, time periods and values specified in this contract notice are provisional and the Trust reserves the right to change them.
The Trust has opened a data room containing a large amount of material relevant to the Estate Modernisation Programme. Access will be given, subject to the Trust receiving an executed non disclosure agreement. Please contact the Trust via the Delta-eSourcing portal for access to the data room. Interested persons may also wish to view the planning documents relating to the Springfield site that are displayed on Wandsworth Council's website (www.wandsworth.gov.uk). Planning information relating to the Tolworth hospital is on Kingston Council's website (www.kingston.gov.uk). The Trust will expect both hospitals to be built and the Springfield site to be redeveloped in accordance with the existing planning permission (though reserving the right to discuss/agree variation or amendment during the dialogue).
The Trust has no fixed view on what structure should be adopted for the delivery of the Estate Modernisation Programme. The Trust expects to see a clearly defined apportionment of risk between the Trust and the Master Developer and that will be developed in dialogue. In the present ‘austerity’ environment, the Trust has no certainty that infrastructure (such as roads or metropolitan open land) will be adopted by the local authority or other undertakers. This and other relevant considerations may entail a relationship between the Trust and the Master Developer that extends beyond the commissioning and entry into service of the new hospitals.
The Trust is not only concerned with the provision of inpatient care at the new hospitals, it also wishes to explore the benefits of providing step-down or assisted living accommodation; it is also mindful of the potential need to provide housing for key workers. The Trust is presently exploring the potential of setting up a framework of social housing providers to manage elements of the Trust's residential estate. If such a proposal goes ahead, the Trust may wish to reserve the right to require the Master Developer to appoint the Trust's nominee(s) (such nominee(s) being 1 or more of those appointed to that framework) to manage affordable housing stock to be built on the Springfield site. This proposal would be discussed and developed further in dialogue.
The Trust reserves the right to vary the nature or scope of its Estate Modernisation Programme in the light of solutions put forward in the dialogue.
The Trust will incorporate a standstill period from the date when information on the award of the contract(s) is communicated to tenderers. The notification will provide full information on the award decision. The standstill period, which will be for a minimum of 10 calendar days, provides time for unsuccessful tenderers to challenge the award decision before the contract(s) is entered into. Part 3 of the Public Contracts Regulations 2015 provides for aggravated parties who have been harmed or are at risk of harm by a breach of the Regulations to take action in the High Court (England and Wales). Any such action must be brought within the applicable limitation periods.
