II.2.4)Description of the procurement:

The General Contractor's (GC's) work scope includes the Major Building Repair and Refurbishment of the existing British Embassy in Washington, USA comprising:

— Ambassador’s Residence (AR) — Comprising circa 6 000 m2 building fabric and mechanical / electrical installations focused refurbishment and repair works to a building of historical significance. The AR has several areas which will require particular attention to complete the works with the minimal disruption to the historic finishes. Works also include the upgrade/reconfiguration of workers accommodation suites on Level 2. The Ambassador’s Residence will be temporarily decanted and therefore unoccupied during the works,

— Old Chancery Building (OCB) — Comprising circa 2 000 m2 building fabric and mechanical / electrical installations focused refurbishment and repair works to a building of historical significance. The OCB is also of historic importance and has several areas which will require particular attention to complete the works with the minimal disruption to the historic finishes. Works also include the conversion of office and gym space to apartments and suites. The Old Chancery Building will be temporarily decanted and therefore unoccupied during the works,

— New Chancery Building (NCB). Comprising circa 10 000 m2 refurbishment including partitions, doors, floor/wall and ceiling finishes and mechanical / electrical installations. Works also include a new build extension to the level 2 internal courtyard and conversion of the external parking to a landscaped courtyard area.

The New Chancery Building is in full occupation/usage and will remain so during the course of the proposed works. Careful consideration will therefore be required as to the phasing of the proposed works to ensure the safety of all occupants, minimise disruption to both the chancery and consular function of the Embassy Site, and ensure works are undertaken as efficiently as possible. This will be achieved via implementation of an effective phasing and decant/recant strategy. It is currently envisaged that the New Chancery Building refurbishment works will be phased on a wing-by-wing basis to minimise the requirement for decanting all existing users at one time to an alternative temporary location — External Drainage / Site Works. The scope also includes the repair and replacement of the existing site drainage infrastructure.

Within the Embassy Compound, access is via the existing circulation roads and will require careful consideration and ongoing liaison with the Embassy (site accommodation, deliveries, circulation, storage of materials etc.).
