II.1.5)Short description of the contract or purchase(s)
The University of Manchester wishes to appoint a contractor to deliver the Fallowfield Student Residences project.
The University aims to significantly enhance the student experience through a replanning of the Fallowfield Campus, diversifying the range of services and facilities — creating a vibrant student village with hub facilities that support residents on site and the student population within the wider Fallowfield area.
The Campus currently comprises;
— 3 251 student Bedrooms;
— the Central Catering Unit for the whole of the university and local site maintenance, (The Limes);
— 1 of the University's main sports facilities, the Armitage Centre;
— a conference centre and hotel, Chancellors; and
— the Firs Experimental Gardens.
Much of the residential accommodation on the Fallowfield site dates from the 1960's and does not now meet the expectations of students or their parents. The site is underutilised and is capable of accommodating additional student numbers which in turn would support the provision of new, essential support facilities, for example new student hub facilities, which would also serve the needs of the wider student population in the Fallowfield area.
The University's goal is to enhance the strengths of the Campus by replacing much of the existing accommodation with modern and well-designed residences that meet the needs of students today and in the future, complemented with the right support services and amenities.
The Vision for the Fallowfield Residential campus is:

to design, construct and operate the campus in a manner that protects the environment and the health and safety of the students, employees and the public, that conserves natural resources and energy and promotes the health and safety of the University of Manchester community;

financially and commercially viable — a development that ‘takes care of itself’;

a unique, vibrant, modern student village that is a showcase for potential students — a place where everyone wants to live;

diverse range of residential offers, a great range of facilities — a place for everyone;

enhances with the wider Fallowfield area and encourages community — a place where everyone has a sense of belonging;

development which can be built and maintained safely, easily and phased — a construction project that minimises disturbance to residents, users and neighbours;

high quality design that is cost effective, durable, well considered and can be maintained and operated easily and efficiently — a place that lasts; and

contributes to local employment and skills — a project the identifies and creates opportunities to benefit Manchester.
The scope of the Fallowfield Student Residences Phase 1 project comprises:
— preparation of site as required to facilitate new buildings and infrastructure;
— 1 122 Cluster Flat Study bedrooms in 8Nr Blocks, (including Pastoral Units)

— Stand-alone replacement of the existing Central Processing Unit (CPU) / Maintenance building
