| Published May 29, 2015 - Deadline June 19, 2015
Airports of Montenegro (the “Client”) has requested the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (the “EBRD” or the “Bank”) to provide technical assistance for the construction of a new passenger terminal and supporting facilities, rehabilitation of the runway and related supervision services at Tivat Airport in Montenegro (the “Project”).
The current capacity of Tivat Airport is insufficient to handle demand during peak season with the airport often experiencing overcrowding and delays. The Project will seek to address these issues by increasing the handling capacity of the passenger terminal, adding two aircraft stands and improving service quality, as well as achieving compliance with International Civil Aviation Organization (“ICAO”) safety requirements by extending the runway – starter extension.
In order to facilitate preparation of the Project a consulting company (the “Consultant”) is required to provide a Conceptual Design and ‘Employer’s Requirements’ for the new passenger terminal and supporting facilities at Tivat Airport (the “Assignment”). The selected Consultant is expected to provide the following services:
Prepare Conceptual Design for the new passenger terminal at Tivat Airport, which shall form an integral facility in conjunction with the existing terminal. The Conceptual Design for the terminal buildings should allow for alternative usage outside of the peak summer months (Package 1);
Prepare Conceptual Design for reconstruction and extension of the capacities including runway – starter extension, manoeuvring areas, taxiways, apron and the lighting equipment at Tivat Airport (Package 2);
Prepare the detailed Employer’s Requirements as defined in the EBRD standard tender documents for Works which include mainly the technical specifications, drawings and Bills of Quantities, for the new terminal (Package 1), sufficient for the purposes of the international open tendering with the contract being based on the Design&Build (Yellow Book FIDIC). The Employer’s Requirements are to be approved by the Client and are subject to the EBRD’s no-objection;
Secure the necessary approvals for the Conceptual Design in accordance with Montenegrin legislation. The output of the Assignment will only be deemed as final once the designs have been approved in accordance with Montenegrin legislation.
