Expo 2020 Dubai — Build, Fit Out, Maintain, Takedown and Legacy (Construction)
On behalf of Her Majesty's Government (HMG), Department for International Trade (DIT) has a mandate to design and deliver UK participation and activation at Expo 2020 Dubai, which will be the largest attended Major World Event taking place in 2020. The requirement is to appoint a construction supplier to build, fit out, maintain, take down and possible legacy of the UK Pavilion within defined timelines, in accordance with budget and processes.
The scope of works includes the supply and construction of the shell and core, fit out including – inter alia – all set work, internal walls, ceilings, floors, plinths, display unit, finishes, graphics, electricals, lighting, interfacing works and exhibition, maintenance, take down and possibly legacy of the Pavilion.
Legacy works may include but not limited to, the careful dismantle and packaging of the entire Pavilion, parts of the Pavilion and/or main exhibit for transportation and re-erection to a new site either within or outside of the UAE.
The place of performance of the scope of requirements will be in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
Department for International Trade requires a solution for the Construction of the Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai. The Pavilion will consist of a self-build country Pavilion with an accompanying business and cultural programme.
The Pavilion is required to be built in accordance with the design theme of ‘Innovating for a Shared Future’ as interpreted by the winning design while adhering to the Expo 2020 Dubai guidelines.
The structure for the Pavilion will need to be built to enhance the architectural vision, allow for innovation and ensure it is sustainable through utilisation of well tested and approved construction methodology and materials.
The scope of the Construction includes the supply and construction of the shell and core, fit-out including – inter alia – all set work, internal walls, ceilings, floors, plinths, display unit, finishes, graphics, electricals, lighting, interfacing works and exhibition, maintenance, take down and possible legacy. Legacy works may include but not limited to, the careful dismantle and packaging of the entire Pavilion, parts of the Pavilion and/or main exhibit for transportation and re-erection to a new site either within or outside of the UAE.
The Pavilion will need to have the capacity to cope with a high level of visitors and free flow of visitors to enhance visitor experience.
The Pavilion will need to be ready by October 2020 to welcome visitors. To achieve this, the construction stage of this requirement will follow a very tight programme timeline. The critical path on the construction is to ensure the completion of the shell and core by 20.10.2019, followed by the completion of fit-out by 20.7.2020 and the final exhibition installation to be completed by 20.9.2020.
The Contractor will be required to work collaboratively with the Design Contractor of the Pavilion to finalise technical design (RIBA Stage 4) and enable buildability of the Pavilion.
The Contract will be awarded on the basis of MEAT which will include an assessment of quality/technical and price at part of Stage 2 of the competitive dialogue process.
There may be a possible short extension to complete the takedown and possible legacy work.
Subject to presenting complaint bids, the top scoring 5 Tenderer's from Stage 1 will be invited to participate in the competitive dialogue following selection stage. Please refer to the Tendering Information document for further information.
