Procurement overview

UK SBS on behalf of UK Research and Innovation wishes to establish a contract for the appointment of a principal contractor who will work collaboratively with UK Research and Innovation (UKRI, Natural Environment Research Council (NERC), the contracting authority with a view to bringing the roof renewal project at NOC Southampton to a finality.

The first stage will comprise a collaborative pre-construction services agreement, (PCSA), the second stage will be the award of the main construction contract.

UK SBS is managing this procurement process in accordance with the Public Contracts Regulations 2015 (as may be amended from time to time), (the ‘Regulations’).

This is a services and works contract being procured under the OJEU open procedure regulations.

It is intended to procure the NOC roof renewal project on a 2-stage design and build basis. The main construction contract will be an amended NEC Engineering and Construction Contract (NEC4) Option A – Fixed price with activity schedule, which will be the head contract between UKRI NERC and the preferred provider. Bidders are to note that the NEC4 ECC main contract terms provided is not the final version of the contract. It is the intention to finalise the NEC4 ECC between the client and the contractor during the PCSA Stage.

Under Stage 1 of the 2-stage design and build basis, the intention will be for the contractor to work with NOC and project stakeholders to complete the PCSA stage. This will include for example logistics and scheduling of works, completion of the design and cost certainty for the main works under the second stage. Under Stage 2, this will focus on the execution of the main works.

If the contractor is not adhering to the terms of the PCSA, not working collaboratively, or provides an unacceptable price at the end of Stage 1, UKRI NERC will be under no obligation to proceed with that contractor. As such PCSA award should not be considered as a guarantee of the main contract also being awarded.

Project description

In July 2018 UKRI, the National Oceanography Centre in Southampton (NOCS) and University of Southampton (UoS) approved the business case to replace the roof covering to the main building. The main building is exhibiting some failings within the pitched roof coverings due to them reaching the end of their operational lifespan and incorrect installation and the existing detailing to the nodes is substandard, allowing water to penetrate internally. The project encompasses the removal of the existing roof tiles to be then replaced with a VM-zinc covering as well as additional works to clad over the brickwork to the abutting nodes with a similar zinc material.

The NOC is funded by UKRI and needs to meet specific assurances and performance criteria, managing the infrastructure assets on behalf of UKRI. The replacement of the NOCS roof will directly contribute towards the UK Government’s Industrial Strategy aims and objectives by ensuring that NOC has the facilities and infrastructure which will enable it to host research work and deliver technological developments that will maintain its position as a world leader within the oceanographic community. Scientists and engineers at NOC are continuously working on the development of new and innovative technologies to aid in the advancement of scientific research undertaken in the most extreme environments.

The investment in the NOCS roof is necessary to ensure that the facility enables this strategically important work continues.
