Contractor shortlist announced for National Construction College redevelopment

Five contractors have made it to the final shortlist to undertake the £25million redevelopment of the National Construction College in Bircham Newton, Norfolk.

The College needs to raise 20% of the costs to unlock another 80% – received in principle from the Learning and Skills Council – to fund the two-year redevelopment project.

Galliford Try, Kier Regional, Morgan Ashurst, RG Carter and Wates Construction were selected from a list of ten PQQ returns and will each receive tender documents. The NCC aims to make the final appointment late 2008 with work starting on site in the summer of 2009.

The shortlist fulfils the first stages in the procurement procedure, to appoint a contractor via the Official Journal of the European Union process.

A Strategic Brief and Pre-Qualification Questionnaire (PQQ) were both issued in May and all responses were judged by an evaluation panel, which included members of the Design and Client teams, led by Drivers Jonas – the company selected to manage the project.

The contractor will be expected to meet NCC’s rigorous time, cost, sustainability and build quality requirements to provide an exemplar learning and development environment for the College.
