Expressions of Interest Invited - Capital Works, Wingfield Station, South Wingfield Derbyshire
The Derbyshire Historic Buildings Trust (DHBT) is looking to appoint a building contractor as part of its capital works programme at Wingfield Station (Grade II*).
The building is located immediately adjacent to a live main line railway (the Midland Main Line).
An initial phase of urgent works, primarily funded by Historic England, has already been undertaken (Practical Completion reached in June 2022) and this covered all works that affected the Network Rail infrastructure (including the roof/chimney repairs and works to the trackside elevations).
For this next phase, the contract will cover masonry works to the non-trackside elevations of the buildings (the main Station building and adjacent Parcel Shed), repairs to windows and doors, works to the internal floors, walls and ceilings, internal decoration and joinery, supplying fixtures and fittings, installing new statutory services and external works (including surface finishes, providing gates and bollards, drainage installation and external lighting).
The anticipated value of the works is circa £650,000 - £750,000.
Experience of projects that involve delivering heritage skills training would be beneficial as this is central to the DHBT’s ambitions for the project. The intention is to provide high quality and meaningful training opportunities that are commensurate with the scale of the project. The main contractor will have overall responsibility for planning and delivering training. This is likely to be:
- Five x 30hr unpaid work experience for students studying construction and related subjects at levels 1-3.
- Hosting site visits from groups of further education and higher education students to the site. This is expected to be 4 x site visits from small groups studying construction and related topics.
- 2 x CPD sessions on site for industry professionals.
- 2 x hard hat days for the public (co-ordinated by the DHBT).
This work is grant funded, primarily via the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
Organisations that are keen on winning the contract are advised to express interest before midnight on the 24th July 2022.
From there, a Pre Qualifying Questionnaire will be released to assess levels of experience, technical and professional ability and to gather information relating to capability, capacity, insurance cover and financial standing.
Full tender documents will be released to those who qualify at the end of September 2022 and Contractor mobilisation is expected by January 2023.
