Section II: Object
Energy House 2
The University of Salford (UoS) has made a strategic decision to proceed with the delivery of the Energy House 2.0 (EH2) building on the success of Salford Energy House 1.0. This new facility will allow the University to increase the scope of research by simulating extreme weather conditions from around the world, servicing the global construction industry. Following design development and Value Engineering, the scheme has been reduced in scale to ensure the key primary output of weather simulation remains. Whilst this is the case, some of the systems providing weather simulation are to be retrofitted at a later date.

Section IV: Procedure
Section VI: Complementary information
The Authority will incorporate a minimum 10 calendar day standstill period at the point information on the award of the contract is communicated to tenderers. Applicants who are unsuccessful shall be informed by the Authority as soon as possible after the decision has been made as to the reasons why the applicant was unsuccessful. If an appeal regarding the award of the contract has not been successfully resolved, the Public Contracts Regulations 2015 (SI 2015 No. 102) provide for aggrieved parties who have been harmed or are at risk of harm by breach of the rules to take action in the High Court (England, Wales, and Northern Ireland). Any such action must generally be brought within three months. If a declaration of ineffectiveness is sought, any such action must be brought within 30 days where the Authority has communicated the award of the contract and a summary of reasons to tenderers, or otherwise within 6 months of the contract being entered into. Where a contract has not been entered into, the Court may order the setting aside of the award decision or order the Authority to amend any document and may award damages. If the contract has been entered into the Court may, depending on the circumstances, award damages, make a declaration of ineffectiveness, order the Authority to pay a fine, and/or order that the duration of the contract be shortened. The purpose of the standstill period referred to above is to allow the parties to apply to the Courts to set aside the award decision before the contract is entered into.
