Choice's Asset Management team require engagement of an appropriately qualified and experienced Principal Contractor to deliver a range of proposed refurbishment, improvement and cyclical maintenance works to existing properties within a, relatively modern, single-phase development of social housing within the Waterside are of the City of Derry.

II.2.4)Description of the procurement:

In total, the scheme comprises 31 self-contained units, with the mix broken down as follows:

— 14nr 3-person, 2-bedroom bungalows;

— 12nr 2-person, 1-bedroom apartments;

— 5nr 2-person, 1-bedroom bungalows.

All properties benefit from private back gardens/yard areas, which are enclosed with a combination of intermediate and higher-level timber-boarded fencing. In-curtilage areas to the front of each property were noted to be ‘open-plan’, in accordance with the original scheme design, with no physical walls or fencing, and the like, noted marking the boundaries between the respective areas demised to each property at the front. Each dwelling benefits from its own, off-street private parking (1 space per self-contained unit), which is provided with tarmacadam hardstandings, in contrast to the brick-paviour, pedestrian walkways. Properties throughout the scheme are generally adjoined, in terrace rows, in a layout that suits the shape and form of the site, with external access to rear gardens, to facilitate refuse collection, being off communal laneways. Properties across both phases of the scheme generally benefit from both front and rear access doors, with the exception of the 6 first floor apartments, which are accessed from a total of 3 communal entrance lobbies containing the shared internal stairs and landings, as well as the electrical supplies and metering equipment serving the first floor units. The package of proposed multi-element improvements proposed will comprise kitchen replacement works (inc. M&E), external cyclical redecoration works — including the identification and implementation of necessary pre-paint repair works, overhaul of the scheme's current uPVC-framed double glazing, the removal and replacement of the vast majority of the scheme's existing external door-sets throughout, the provision of a new door-entry/intercom system (where required) to serve the scheme's upper-storey apartments, rainwater goods clearance and essential repair works, as well as refurbishment of the internal communal areas serving the 3 apartment blocks within the scheme.
