Section II: Object
National road 555 The Sotra Connection OPS
The aim of the procurement is to construct a dual carriageway between Storavatnet in Bergen Municipality and Kolltveit in New Øygarden Municipality. The project is to be implemented with OPS as the execution model. The contest will be a negotiated procedure, where the 3 best qualified suppliers will be invited to submit a tender. The chosen tenderer will be completely responsible for the engineering design, construction, financing, operation and maintenance of the contract for 25 years. The contract includes, amongst other things, a new Sotra bridge, 4 tunnels, 6 major split level junctions, new foot/cycle paths, new bus terminals, as well as upgrades to side roads and parts of the existing road network. The current national road 555 is a single carriageway of varying standard and a very high ADT. The transport system is very vulnerable with the current bridge being the only access to New Øygarden Municipality.
The project is to be implemented with OPS as the execution model. OPS is an abbreviation for ‘public private collaboration’. The tenderer will be completely responsible for the engineering design, construction, financing, operation and maintenance of the contract for 25 years. The project will use BIM, which will be a tool for interaction and efficient project implementation. The BIM model must be the source for all the required and updated information in the project throughout the entire project's lifetime. Tenderers must seek innovative, digital systems to achieve seamless execution of the engineering design, construction and operation phases, as well as actively contribute to BIM development and process optimisation. The BIM model must form the basis for efficient operation and maintenance work after the development phase.
