It is recognised that, when considering a construction project, key decisions on viability, vision, product, exploiting opportunities etc., are made at the beginning of the process, before the planning and design stages and long before work starts on site. The council recognises that Client Advisers are highly trained, experienced architects or construction professionals who can understand the implication on financial, planning decisions on placemaking and advise on how to get the best out of the procurement process in line with the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) work stages (2020). It is considered that an appointment at the earliest stage can help bring clarity of vision certainty and maximise the benefits realisation from a placemaking/ sustainability perspective. The brief for the Client Advisory Team is based on RIBA Stages 0-2. The contract may be extended beyond but at this stage SCDC cannot guarantee this at this stage. For the purposes of meeting the regulations (WTO) the maximum contract value is £2.25m (two million two hundred fifty thousand). SCDC reserve the right to extend any agreed contract up to this value. Bidder’s should be aware that this is to meet regulatory requirements and is not the estimated or guaranteed volume or value of work. Please note due to the confidential nature of this project, bidders will be asked to sign a non disclosure agreement prior to receiving the tender documentation.
