Conservation and Restoration of two historic ships, The Arctic Corsair and The Spurn Light Vessel.
Main contract details
Hull: Yorkshire’s Maritime City (H:YMC) is a £30 million regeneration project to reinterpret the city’s maritime past, using an extraordinary resource including historic buildings, collections, ships and people to tell the story of Hull’s contribution to the past and highlight the City’s maritime future. The project is jointly funded by Hull City Council (HCC) and the National Lottery Heritage Fund. A key element of this project will be the conservation, renovation and refurbishment of two of Hull’s most iconic and historic ships, The Arctic Corsair trawler and The Spurn Light Vessel. HCC is now looking to appoint a contractor to undertake the sensitive conservation work required to ensure that these ships can continue to tell their stories for the next hundred years and more.
The Authority is therefore now seeking bids from suitably qualified and experienced suppliers to undertake the required conservation and restoration works to both of the historic ships.
It is intended that the successful contractor will be appointed during March 2021, with necessary works to both ships commencing from April 2021 and being fully completed by no later than 30th September 2022.
This tender is being undertaken in a two-stage process, with interested contractors and suppliers initially required to complete and return a Standard Selection Questionnaire (SSQ) document, with both the standard elements and the (scored) Quality Question elements completed. Following assessment and scoring of the SSQ stage returns, the Council will shortlist the highest-scoring six (6) suppliers who will then be taken forward to the full Invitation To Tender (ITT) stage for this procurement. The ITT stage will include both Pricing and Quality elements and will be issued to the shortlisted suppliers in mid-January 2021.
