Multi Discipline Design Services for a new Engineering, Mathematics and Computing Building
Multi discipline design services for a new engineering, mathematics and computing building at the Treforest campus.
In 2019 USW commissioned a feasibility study (RIBA stage 1) to identify a new home for the school of computing and mathematics and the school of engineering. The study, led by Stride Treglown architects, concluded that the most suitable home is a new build on the site of D Block and K Block in the Treforest campus. The site itself is flat, but is constrained by challenging topography and steep contours to the north, which will need to be tied in through the buildings landscaping design. The new building is anticipated to be 3 to 5 storeys tall, with a floorplate of between 2 500 and 4 200 m2. This will provide a building of significant stature at the heart of the Treforest campus.
To that end, the University requires a multi-discipline design team to undertake as a minimum the following services:
— architectural design,
— structural design,
— mechanical and Electrical design,
— acoustic performance strategy and guidance,
— town planning application and guidance (including SAB application),
— fire strategy design,
— interior design,
— preparation and submission of building regulations application.
The consultant will be expected to provide suitably qualified personnel to undertake the work and must provide a named single point of contact who shall be responsible for the operation of the whole contract. The multi-disciplinary team will comprise suitably qualified and/or experienced personnel who have wide and demonstrable experience in developments similar to this initiative. It is important to note that the University is interested in the experience of the individuals who will deliver the commission and not the collective experience of the company.
Your services are required for the following RIBA work stages:
— RIBA 2: Concept design* (direct to client),
— RIBA 3: Developed design (direct to client),
— RIBA 4: Technical design (either direct to client or novated to a principal contractor),
— RIBA 5: Construction (novated to a principal contractor),
— RIBA 6: Handover and Close Out (novated to a principal contractor).
Renewals are dependant on how the project progresses in relation to our timescales.
