The Works comprise the installation of fire alarm systems, emergency lighting systems, external lighting, new fire doors and fire compartmentation works to Darnall Education Centre.
The Contractor will be expected to utilise subcontractors and suppliers from the Sheffield area as much as practically possible and this will be a key question in the evaluation process.
The Client will employ Clerks of Works to oversee the work and sample checks will be made as applications for payment. Site checks will also be made during progress of the works.
The Form of Contract will be JCT Without Quantities 2011 edition including all standard City Council amendments and obligations.
The budget for all site works described above is £430,000.
The works will ensure that the Centre complies with all current fire safety and general electrical regulations whilst also providing a more secure environment for persons approaching or leaving the building and surrounding areas
As part of the Sir Henry Royce Institute (SHRI) for Materials the Department of Materials Science and Engineering, University of Sheffield wishes to open tender for a thin film deposition system. The primary function of the system will be to allow the exploration of new materials as either homogeneous single layer films or multilayer stacks. Film thicknesses should be controllable to monolayer levels, such that the system can be used to fabricate ultra-thin films.
Purchase of equipment.
We invite tenders to supply a superconducting quantum interference device (SQUID) magnetometer. This will form a significant investment as part of the creation of the Sir Henry Royce Institute in Materials Discovery at the University of Sheffield.
The SQUID magnetometer will characterize a wide range of materials, including ferromagnetic and ferrimagnetic bulk, thin film, patterned array and nano-particle samples, materials for nuclear waste immobilization, electro-ceramics, multiferroics, novel alloys and materials for nuclear fusion technology. This breadth of sample type dictates the requirement for a flexible system with a unique range of capabilities and recirculating cryogens.
Delivery will be required between August and no later than the end of October 2018.
