The form of contract will be JCT Design and Build Contract 2011 with all current amendments (or similar) and a Schedule of Amendments bespoke to the works.
The contract for the works are proposed to be undertaken in a single phase, however the construction and management of the works may be phased to accommodate access to the retained retail and residential units in close proximity to the site.
A Contract Guarantee Bond of 10 % of the Contract Sum will be required throughout the Contract Period, to be released upon issue of the Statement of Completion of Making Good Defects. Sub Consultant and Sub Contractor Collateral Warranties will also be required for design work and for key subcontract activities including demolition and site remediation.
The works are the demolition, partial refurbishment and new build construction of Yorkswood Primary School, Kingshurst Way, Solihull, B37 6DF.
The existing campus comprises 2 buildings built in 1957 using the ‘Vic Hallam’ lightweight timber system, with additional steel support in places. These buildings are constructed on a 2 032 mm, (6’-8”) grid, and are single storey over three different modular heights to suit office, classroom and assembly hall use. The site also contains the existing Brambles Nursery in a 2007 brick built steel framed extension to be extensively modified internally.
The site remodelling proposes the demolition of the Vic Hallam structure to allow the construction of the new traditionally built single story school that will be linked to the retained Brambles Nursery which will be remodelled and refurbished.
The single on site access road leading to the main site access on Kingshurst Way is to be widened to allow vehicles to pass, car parking is to be expanded and formalised together with landscaped improvements and safer pedestrian routes created with dedicated protected pedestrian routes to both sides.
