Abstract: The Cambrian Heritage Regeneration Trust, a registered Charity and Building Preservation Trust, is currently developing a c.GBP 3m project to restore the former YMCA building in Merthyr Tydfil and to convert it into modern office spaces for the creative industries.
The YMCA is a significant Grade II structure with a terracotta façade which dominates the Pontmorlais area of Merthyr Tydfil. It was designed by Sir Percy Thomas, one of Wale’s foremost Architects and is significant as his first major commission. Its restoration will mark a considerable achievement for regeneration in Merthyr Tydfil and Wales.
We need to procure the services of an Architect for the Project. The successful appointment will have a demonstrated track record in: the conservation of outstanding historic buildings; the conversion of historic buildings for innovative new uses and excellent skills in presenting a strong lead to the professional team and working to ensure the project is delivered in time and to budget. The lead Architect must be accredited as a Specialist Conservation Architect by the RIBA or equivalent (AABC) and experience of leading similar multi-million GBP projects in Wales.
Previous consultancy work on the project includes a Feasibility Study 2011; detailed site survey 2014 and an Options Appraisal for Circulation and Layout with QS Costings 2015. In addition to this an initial phase of emergency structural works and stabilisation works has been undertaken to the property including the removal of all asbestos from the site; the construction of a temporary roof structure and slope stabilisation works to the rear.
This tender is for services under RIBA Plan of Work 2013 Services will include a Concept Review (Stage 2) to Use (Stage 7). Progression to Stage 7 will be subject to HLF Approval following the completion of Technical Design (Stage 4).
During the Contract Period the Architects will act as Contract Administrators.
The target for Stage 2 submission to the HLF April 2016; so all design and technical preparation of the tender documentation would need to be completed by early March 2016.
The target for the completion of the restoration is Easter 2018.
Contract Type: It is anticipated that the contract type will be a standard RIBA Contract 2010 (2012 Revisions) and the Cambrian Heritage Regeneration Trust General Conditions of Contract.
The tender is an open accelerated procedure due to the urgency of the project timings.
CPV: 45212350, 71200000.
