English Heritage manages over 400 historic properties across England as well as offices and stores some of which are also listed buildings. The historic properties contain both historic and non historic assets. They vary significantly in age, size, complexity, geographical location and type ranging from furnished historic houses, ruined castles and abbeys to prehistoric and Roman remains, industrial sites, gardens and statues. Almost all are protected as scheduled ancient monuments and /or listed buildings, registered historic gardens, conservation areas and a few are World Heritage Sites. English Heritage is required to conserve and maintain these properties for the enjoyment of present and future generations.
The framework will cover quantity surveying services in connection with works projects and will be let in Lots by geographical area.
The Lots are set out below:
Lot 1B: North Territory (Northumberland, Cumbria, Lancashire, Cheshire and Yorkshire).
Lot 2B: East and London Territory (London, Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, Lincolnshire, Leicestershire, Northamptonshire, Rutland, Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire, Essex, Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire).
Lot 3B: South Territory (Kent, East Sussex, Berkshire, Hampshire, Oxfordshire, Isle of Wight and West Sussex).
Lot 4B: West Territory (Herefordshire, Worcestershire, Warwickshire, Shropshire, Staffordshire, Wiltshire, Gloucestershire, Bristol, Somerset, Dorset, Devon, Cornwall and Isles of Scilly).
In addition the framework will cover the following services: advising and preparing standard contract documentation; giving expert advice in connection with and in preparing cost analysis. These additional services will be dealt with nationally across all Lots. Suppliers may apply to be considered for one or more Lots and will be asked to indicate which on expression of interest.
Form of Contract to be used: English Heritage General Conditions for the Appointment of Works Consultant.
Following completion of the Pre Qualification Questionnaire English Heritage envisages that the number of operators who will be invited to tender or to participate will be a minimum of 6. It is our intention to appoint between 4-6 per lot. The value range is an estimated figure only this can go up or down depending on the Project and funding / budgetary constraints.
Please note that subject to Government approval from 1.4.2015 The Historic Buildings and Monuments Commission (trading as English Heritage) is likely to be split into two separate organisations. It is intended that a new charity will be set up to manage the National Heritage Collection. The charity will retain the name English Heritage, but will be an entirely new organisation. The remainder of English Heritage (which provides planning and conservation services and advice) will operate under the new name of Historic England, but will remain as the same legal entity.
As the framework will cover work on the the National Heritage Collection, it may need to be novated across to the new charity with effect from 1.4.2015.
