The Estates Department, NML is carrying out a programme of compliance works across the estates portfolio. This includes for the carrying out of a new Electrical Inspection Condition Report (EICR) at the World Museum, William Brown St, Liverpool L3 8EN.

Bidders are asked to submit a formal submission for the "Electrical Installation Condition Report, World Museum, Liverpool". The bid submission should show a price per circuit, management cost, costs associated with the provision of access equipment. The final cost will be based on the number of circuits inspected/tested during the works, as evidenced by the EICR provided. The last EICR was carried out in 2014 and at that time the building was served by approximately 1,700 protected line circuits from 182 distribution boards (line circuits in this instance is any conductor protected by circuit protective device - single pole/triple pole or three phase). The works should be carried out in accordance with BS 7671:2018 and Guidance Note 3 of the EIT Wiring Regs and with the requirement being to provide the final, fully signed report in electronic version only, within 7 working days of completion and with identified remedial works clearly highlighted. Any remedial work identified in the EICR observations will not automatically be awarded directly to the contractor supplying the EICR, however costs for remedial works should also be provided. Code C1 observations may be remedied, isolated or managed down to C2 where possible immediately at the time of identification (financial limit to be confirmed on award of works). Contractors should consider the need to carry out the works outside of normal working hours, being completed after 5 pm during normal weekday evenings/overnight. A schedule of actual hours of working and areas to be covered will need to be agreed in advance of works starting on site. Site specific RAMs and Method Statements must be submitted prior to commencement of work for approval by NML Health & Safety Advisors, these being coupled with employee training on dynamic risk assessments. Details of engineers attending site will be required with evidence of their certification/training to show their capability to carry out the works and safely. Please note, there is a requirement for all engineers to be DBS cleared by the contractor management prior to commencing on site.
