This procurement exercise is being undertaken in order to secure a main contractor to deliver the Ordsall Dock 5 PRS scheme located in Ordsall, Salford on a fixed price design and build basis, with the intention of starting on site by October 2019 (the ‘Contract’). The site, that is bordered by the Irwell, Ordsall Lane, a ‘sister’ site being developed by Fortis (Bridgewater Wharf) and Fairbrother Street, has already been purchased (in January 2019) and is in the ownership of ForHousing. Planning permission for 375 apartments was granted in May 2018, although under delegated authority, it is anticipated that the planners will approve the scheme increasing to 389 properties. The properties are being developed for market rent and the letting and management of apartments will be undertaken by the Forviva Group's commercial subsidiary ForLiving. As the owner of the site, ForHousing will be the ultimate client for the scheme, though it will be contracting through the ForViva’s Group’s development vehicle, ForViva DevCo Ltd. Accordingly, ForViva DevCo will be the ‘Employer’ under the Contract. The homes to be constructed under the Contract are a mixture of Studio, 1 bed, 2 bed and 3 bed apartments and 3 bed and 4 bed duplex apartments. There are also 3 x commercial units facing onto Ordsall Lane and 95 x undercover car parking spaces. The Employers Agent on the scheme will be Savills and it will be a condition of the contract that the main contractor appoints Liberty (an entity within the ForViva Group) to undertake all the M&E works under a subcontract arrangement. It is also a requirement that the architect and structural engineers namely Falconer Chester Hall and Clancy Consulting Engineers respectively, will be novated to and be employed by the successful design and build contractor. As the main contractor, the selected contractor will have sole responsibility for the delivery of the Contract and will be required to manage and coordinate its supply chain (including consultants, subcontractors and suppliers) accordingly.

The main contractor that is chosen following the conclusion of this procurement process will be required to work with ForHousing and its professional team in a spirit of constructive partnership to finalise and agree the scheme design, specification, programme and contract sum, and to ultimately deliver the works required by ForHousing under the contract.
