Section II: Object
Demolition Contractors Framework
South Tees Development Corporations (STDC) is seeking to establish a demolition contractors framework (‘Framework’) to address the demolition of a very large inventory or former iron and steel making assets, further to the closure of SSI UK on Teesside in 2015 and the subsequent acquisition by STDC of extensive landholdings for the purposes of carrying out major economic regeneration in line with its published master plan.
Information on the nature and scope of the works required under the Framework are provided in the published instructions for tendering documentation, with includes a selection questionnaire that forms the basis of the first stage in this procurement.
The Framework that is the subject of the procurement will be structured in two lots.
Large-scale, Major Demolition Projects, with a High Level of Complexity
The works to be delivered under lot 1 will be focused on decontamination and demolition of the major asset complexes across the STDC estate, such as the Redcar Blast Furnace and Redcar Coke Ovens. The anticipated value threshold for this lot is projects valued individually at GBP 750 000 and greater. Further details are provided in the published instructions for tendering documentation.

Other Demolition Projects, of a Lower Complexity
Lot 2 will be utilised to deliver various demolition projects, including: secondary and peripheral assets connected with the primary asset complexes, conveyors, pipe bridges, smaller buildings, lighting towers and any highway and/or rail bridges requiring of demolition.

Section IV: Procedure
The Framework scope includes large, complex industrial facilities, with long delivery timescales. The site is a CoMAH Upper Tier installation. Major decontamination and HV diversionary works are required to enable demolition delivery. The requirements of existing and new operational businesses need to be considered. Unforeseen delays are therefore likely, and programme flexibility essential.
