In addition, works which include the demolition of the existing accommodation to all three sites would also be carried out as one continued sequence of work under a single contract within the construction programme.
1) The project as outlined above is for the replacement of the Remote Radar Head (RRH) domestic accommodation in the Falkland Islands. This is split across three sites, Mount Alice and Byron heights on the West Island and Mount Kent on the East Island. The construction on each site is broadly similar, however there are several small variations;
2) Construction across each of the sites has been progressed to the point at which the substructure, drainage, steel frame and external envelope are largely complete. The requirement is to bring the project to completion including the demolition and disposal of the ‘old’ existing accommodation;
3) To complete the project the authority has determined that the following works will need to be undertaken by a contractor across all 3 sites:
— internal fit out, including MEP services, internal envelope, finishes and kitchen installation,
— testing and commissioning of equipment already on the site (Inc. Air Handling Units),
— remedial works, including to the external building envelope and building structure,
— completion of external foul, storm water drainage system, external landscaping and infrastructure/services,
— demolition of the existing accommodation and removal of waste from site back to the UK,
— all redundant services are to be removed and the site of the existing accommodation buildings is then to be backfilled and levelled and to protect against erosion.
4) The RRH Accommodation Construction Status Report (Ref F) prepared by Ramboll UK provides a more detailed breakdown of the works which anticipated to be required across all 3 sites;

6) A significant quantity of the materials required to complete the works will be available on site and will be available ‘free-issue’ to the contractor. Materials which are not currently held will need to be procured and shipped to the Falklands/RRH sites by the contractor;
7) The materials supplied ‘free-issue’ to the contractor are in authority supplied ISO containers; the contractor will take on the management and maintenance of these ISO Containers and the return to the UK once the works are completed. There are approximately 350 ISO containers; this is made up of approximately 50 containers on each hill top site and the remainder at the Mount Pleasant Complex;
8) Due to the remote location of all 3 sites the requirement will encompass a significant logistical element with a contractor being responsible for transporting personnel, building materials and plant equipment to and from site. A contractor will also be responsible for the removal of all waste and redundant services from site back to the UK for disposal.
