II.2.4)Description of the procurement:

This tender opportunity is for the construction of a 77 bed care/nursing home and associated works to BREEAM Excellent standard and to BIM Level 2 under a JCT Design and Build 2016 as amended contract. The home will be dementia friendly throughout. Demonstration of previous experience in collaborating with a care provider to deliver specialist care home is essential. Site access, logistics and neighbour relations are all relevant factors, with the S278 Works being necessary to undertake before starting the main construction works. It is expected that the contract duration will be in the region of 72 — 80 weeks and it is expected that for a great deal of this time the adjacent housing site will also be under construction, so collaboration between contractors will be essential. This procurement is not being divided into lots because the Council requires a single contractor to deliver this project. Economic operators should be aware that due to the nature of the works provided, any contract formed as a result of this procurement process shall be executed as a deed. Economic operators should seek independent legal advice on the implications of this prior to submitting a tender, where appropriate.
