Student Accommodation – Campus Housing Short Term Repurposing

The Accommodation Development Programme Mandate includes the provision of additional short to medium term student accommodation for year 2+ (including international students). This is required to be available from 2024 to enable maximum occupancy of year 1 students in existing student accommodation facilities.

Condition surveys have been carried out at each property included in the project. These have been reviewed and cross referenced to asset information to understand the current condition of each property and work required to deliver the project brief. As would be expected from properties that are currently being used as campus housing, all properties appear to be in good condition.
The properties are all considered to have a consistent baseline condition of:
• All services, doors and windows operating to an acceptable functional standard
• Good condition in terms of internal and external finishes
• No requirement for immediate asbestos removal or making safe
• No requirement for electrical safety works to address visible electrical issues

Considering the baseline condition, a minimal intervention approach has been adopted where works are only undertaken to:
• Achieve the Health Homes Standard (HHS)
• Address any items outside of HHS to achieve the minimum standard required for student accommodation
• Address broken/damaged/unsafe items

A minimal intervention approach will result in a scope of works to each property that is very similar to typical maintenance requirements. Please refer to Appendix A for full details of the project brief.
UC is seeking to appoint a suitably experienced main contractor who will be responsible for delivering the Project within programme. In addition to the main contractor, UC will engage a Clerk of the Works/Project Manager and a Quantity Surveyor.

The maintenance nature of the works means that there are unlikely to be items in the scope of works that require a significant level of design input. Any design work required will be procured on an ad-hoc basis.

The Successful Respondent will:
• Have the capacity, capability, experience and resources to successfully deliver the Project on time; and
• Have relevant and recent experience in delivering Contract Works of a similar nature in a comparable setting.
