In order to provide a streamlined sourcing route for further development of the Port, including for at the Council owned nearby Portico site as well as at associated Port infrastructure sites, a framework agreement for the delivery of commercial buildings made up of 3-4 contractors will also be established via this procurement process. Total spend via the framework agreement could be in the region of 50M GBP.

Portsmouth City Council - the 'Council' - is inviting expressions of interest from experienced contractors for a contract to deliver design and construction of a new cruise terminal at Portsmouth International Port (the 'Port') located within Portsmouth Harbour and inclusion on a wider multi-contractor framework agreement made up of 3-4 contractors which will be utilised to deliver further development works at the Port. The Port is wholly owned by the Council.
To meet the needs of the Port's current and targeted clients, an annexe to the existing terminal is being proposed that will be designed and constructed solely for the cruise market. The terminal will be a steel structure building, with piled foundations and two floors, plus a mezzanine for the plant room.
The new terminal construction will include the fit out of specialised equipment, including baggage handling areas, lifts, escalators etc. The development will cover approximately 2 000 sqm and cater for 1 000 cruise passengers.
The contract will be let on the basis of a 2 stage open book procedure whereby following completion of design, programme, installation methodology, installation cost, etc. under a 1st stage JCT Pre-Construction Service Agreement the Council will enter into a JCT Design and Build Contract with the contractor who will be responsible for all aspects of construction activities.
Award of the contract is scheduled for 18.2.2020 and is currently estimated between 6M GBP to 8M GBP inclusive of contractor design costs. Works may commence from May 2020 and stage 1 of the works must be completed by 2.4.2021 with overall completion by July 2021.
In order to provide an effective sourcing route for further development of the Port, including for at the Council owned Portico site and at associated Port infrastructure sites, a multi-contractor framework agreement will be established via this procurement process. The framework agreement will be in place for 4 years with options to extend in increments to be agreed up to a maximum total term of 10 years. For further details of the framework scope and future contracting strategies see section II.2.11) Information about options..
The Council is running the procurement process in line with the 'Restricted Procedure' as set out within the 'Public Contracts Regulations (2015)' whereby a shortlist of 3-4 contractors devised via assessment of applications in response to this advert will be invited to submit tenders. The Council is unable to provide any guarantees of further work or give any binding estimates in respect of total value of contracts that may be let via the framework. However, to comply with the requirements of the Public Contracts Regulations (2015) the Council has entered a figure of 50M GBP for total projects let via the framework agreement within the OJEU Contract Notice value field. The £50M forecast is inclusive of the 6M GBP - 8M GBP value estimate for the cruise terminal project.
The Council will let the contract for the cruise terminal project and overarching framework agreement in accordance with the following programme:

In order to provide an effective sourcing route for further development of the Port, a multi-contractor framework agreement will be established via this procurement process.
The framework agreement will be in place for 4 years with options to extend in increments to be agreed up to a maximum total term of 10 years.
A framework agreement term of 4 years could severely impact upon the Ports ability to react effectively to current or new customers immediate requirements. Should the Port not be in a position to effectively adapt to changing or new customer requirements, business opportunities could be lost which would impact existing and/or new revenue opportunities and potentially cause negative reputational issues for the Port. As such the Council has opted to establish the framework agreement for a period of 10 years.
No other contracting authorities may access the framework agreement and the Council may only utilise the agreement for works at the Port, including for at the Council owned Portico site and at associated Port infrastructure sites.
Once the Framework Agreement is established, design and construction of commercial buildings will form the basis of the framework scope, potential future works may include, for example:
— Extension of the proposed cruise terminal building,
— Construction of a refrigerated warehouse at Portico for produce,
— Border Inspection Post,
— Port administration offices.
The framework agreement will be made up of 3-4 Design and Build contractors which will be used to source ECI, design and works activities as required. Once the framework agreement is established work packages will generally be let via mini-competition across the framework Contractors, although a direct award option will also be available in order to deal with specific situations, such as existing building expansion, repeat work, time of the essence requirements, etc.
The Council will reserve the right to utilise a range of contracting strategies and forms as appropriate for future call off contracts, including for all contract forms and options within the JCT suites of contracts. Call off contracts may be let using a variety of tendering strategies ranging from single stage lump sum traditional tendering to 2 stage open partnership contracting.
