The WHSCT are seeking to appoint a design team for the proposed upgrade / replacement of mechanical and electrical infrastructure in two wards within the Tower Block at Altnagelvin hospital. The project aims to reduce the risk associated with the mechanical and electrical services. The chosen ward will be vacant throughout the duration of the works, however the floors above and below will remain a live acute environment. There will be elements of work located on additional floors which will require work within a live ward, and the amount of disruption must be kept to a minimum.
The work will primarily involve the installation of replacement mains, hot and cold water services to the existing water assets within the wards. It will be necessary to removal all redundant pipework in line with legislative guidance and hospital policy.
The work will involve the complete replacement of all electrical services within the wards. All work must be carried out in line with legislative guidance.
The works are to be completed and handed over before the end of the current financial year, 31st March 2016.
The WHSCT confirm that the following consultants will be required to form part of the design team; Lead Consultant, Architect, Mechanical Engineer, Electrical Engineer, Quantity Surveyor and CDM coordinator. Schedules of duties for these consultants will be included in the ITT. It is anticipated that the lead consultant (contract administrator) will be the architect.
The contract period (for consultant services) is 10 months, June 2015 – March 2016, not including the defects liability period.
