Trinity College Dublin, the University of Dublin, invites suitably qualified firms to pre-qualify for Single Point Design Team Services (“SPDT”) including other services, to successfully develop a new student accommodation building, of approximately 300 bed-spaces and associated works, at Trinity’s grounds in Dartry. In parallel with this completion, there is currently a request to participate issued for Project Management and Quantity Surveying Services (“PMQS”) for the same goal. This project may be developed via the new Strategic Housing Development Scheme. Although Trinity will use suitable GCCC contracts, it is not decided by Trinity whether the project will be designed by the contractor or the employer, or if it will be procured under a design-build-finance arrangement. If it is to be a contractor-led design, Trinity will require the PMQS to advise on novation/technical advisory services, and the SPDT to support this investigation and report. Due to the planning history in the area, the SPDT commission must be able to cope with any planning delays, in being flexible enough to go into a mode that suits the waiting periods, and then re-start to completion or termination. It is also possible that this project will be referred directly to An Bord Pleanála under the new Planning and Development (Strategic Housing Development) Regulations 2017 (aka Strategic Housing Development System) and the SDPT commission must be able to deal with that scenario.
The SPDT will comprise, inter-alia
Concept leadership, Architectural design, Landscape design, M&E and building services, Environmental design, Civil and structural engineering, Fire design, Assisting legal teams (to be employed by TCD), Acoustic specialists, Planning specialists, Design Certification under BCAR, Construction Informatics Coordinator, Conservation specialist, Archaeologist, Resident Engineer services on site (100% FTE during all site works + 1 month before start on site and 1 month after SC)
