Due to an ambiguity in the wording of the necessary qualifications it has been decided to re-advertise this tender which previously closed in December.

The original tender implied that only qualified Architects could apply, and it stated that they would be required to organise all members of their team. However, the Parish Council has decided that bids from suitably experienced professionals e.g. Architects, Chartered Surveyors and Chartered Project Management Surveyors are acceptable.

All bids that were received following the original request will be reconsidered along with any new applications. There is no need for existing applicants to reapply.

As this tender has previously been advertised, the submission period has been shortened.

Hethersett Parish Council is seeking to appoint a suitably experienced professional to meet the Council's Design Brief to replace the existing changing block with a fit for purpose multi-use pavilion together with extending the current car parking arrangements at the Memorial Playing Field in Hethersett.

We are seeking a well-designed building for the use of existing user groups (football, bowls and cycle speedway) and community groups (birthday parties, fitness classes, mother & toddler groups). It is envisaged that the construction will be brick but we are open to other forms of construction that are economic and energy efficient. The area has previously been subject to anti-social behaviour and consideration should therefore be given to graffiti and vandalism to ensure that the building can be cleaned/maintained easily. We would hope that the design would incorporate a number of energy efficient features such as energy efficient fabric; heating system; green water systems to make the building environmentally friendly, but these need to be kept within a reasonable budget. The building must also be fully accessible for disabled users.

An indicative budget is between £500,000 and £600,000.

The Parish Council expect the successful applicant to organise all required members of their project team to obtain all Statutory Approvals and Consultations including Football Association. To be responsible for managing all works on site whilst liaising with us, from demolition through to completion with all necessary Certification. Please provide a full breakdown of costs associated with each element of the work in the Fee Bid. We will pay for any reports and surveys required subject to three quotations being sourced by the successful applicant. Your bid should provide an indication as to what reports/surveys will be required. Statutory charges will also be paid directly by us. Sourcing of all financial grants including the preparation of a bid to the Football Foundation will be undertaken by the Parish Council.
