Section II: Object
Urban and City Centre Regeneration Construction Framework
This Framework is designed to cover a broad scope of construction projects, focused on the development and regeneration of urban centres. The central purchasing authority is Gloucester City Council, however the framework may be used by public sector bodies throughout the UK. It is not mandatory for suppliers to cover this whole region as there is a process of award set out in the Framework Agreement.
Suppliers may be called upon by eligible Contracting Authorities to provide complete design and build projects for simple structures; or complete construction on detailed designs from the authority or its agents (developers, architects etc.); or associated construction activities.
The framework is aimed at driving city and town centre development to bolster economic growth, promote business and improving living spaces for residents of urban areas.
Projects Less Than 1 000 000 GBP
Eligible Contracting Authorities are throughout the entire UK. However, it is not mandatory for suppliers to cover the whole region. Terms detailed in contract documents.
Lots are divided according to the value of the projects. This is to engage with the best suppliers for each size of development, utilising SMEs where this provides the best quality and value for money.
Any organisation, or consortium, can apply to be a supplier if they can deliver comprehensive works as detailed in the tender description.
The types of projects will include commercial or mixed-use sites comprising shops and residential properties, entertainment complexes, structures for public use, enterprise developments, institutional premises including universities and colleges; leisure; parking; amenities; as well as associated infrastructure.
Once the spending limit is reached or the contract duration expires this framework may be re-opened and renewed.
Projects Between 1 000 000 GBP — 5 000 000 GBP
Projects Between 5 000 000 GBP — 10 000 000 GBP
Projects Above 10 000 000 GBP
Section III: Legal, economic, financial and technical information
Appointment to the framework is pass or fail, based on suppliers meeting the relevant criteria. This includes completeness of the provided pricing schedule, as well as minimum standards of health and safety (such as registration on an SSIP scheme), self-certification the supplier is a going concern, and satisfies the requirements regarding mandatory or discretionary exclusion. This establishes a minimum standard for appointment to the framework, whilst there may be a competitive quality and price weighting on a per job basis.
A pro forma copy of the framework contract is included with the tender documents. This outlines the conditions of performance, including KPIS, standards of workmanship and how the call-off process will work.
