York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust is looking to appoint up-to 2 Building, Mechanical and Electrical contractors to deliver small works projects — 1 contractor for the York region (lot 1) and 1 contractor for the Scarborough region (lot 2).
The contract will be for 3 years plus 1 optional extension period of a further 1 year period — the contract will not exceed 4 years in total.
The Council is looking to let a contract to convert five double decker sight seeing buses from diesel engines to fully electric engines with 0 emissions. The Tenderer will also fit electric charging points to the bus depot so that the vehicles can be easily charged each night.
See tender documents.
Installation of new external gas, water and electrical services.
Installation of new gas boiler plant in the sports hall hub, including M&E internal modifications.

Please refer to the Prior Information Notice for further information.
City of York Council requires a partner Tenderer to convert five third party existing diesel double decker buses to full electric through retro fitting a full electric drive, with minimum 80 mile range capability (daily service range is typically 65 miles carrying passengers). The buses are five ADL Tridents circa 1999-2002. The owner and operator of the five buses is TransDev Blazefield Ltd, the City of York Council’s partner in this project.
Following the launch two years ago of the world’s first double decker conversion of a City Sightseeing tour bus to fully electric drive, and York’s expansion of its electric fleet of buses at Monks Cross and Poppleton Park&Ride sites, the DfT's Clean Vehicle Technology Fund will now enable the conversion of an additional five buses into ‘zero emission motion’ – using electric motors and storage batteries.
CYC are extremely keen to improve air quality in York by reducing emissions from one of the key frequent users of the city – the bus fleet. Currently there are over 200 unique buses travelling through the city centre each day, averaging 10 journeys each per day. Because of the size of the engines, the driving characteristics, the diesel fuel used, buses currently have a highly disproportionate impact on air quality. Electric buses are likely to act as a front-runner on our city streets before the widescale market adoption of electric cars, and therefore the role of the electric bus as an ‘influencer’ of wider electric vehicle adoption is therefore a very important associated benefit of an electric bus strategy.
The electric retrofitted vehicles will eliminate tailpipe emissions of harmful Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2) and particulates, and reduce the carbon footprint significantly. The converted buses are quieter and emit no pollution from the tailpipe as they run entirely on electric motors and battery packs. The electric range will be more than enough to complete a full day of touring and the buses will trickle charge overnight at their depot, using low carbon off peak electricity.
Tenderers are requested to return a statement of methodology which explains how they intend to carry out this project, together with responses to the quality questions and pricing schedule in the ITT Forms to Be Returned documents. These responses should outline as fully as possible what existing info you have access to which will assist the project, and how you will approach gathering new info, as well as which stakeholders will be approached and what types of analysis will be used to establish benefits/risks.
