Fallowfield Student Residences — Contractor Procurement

The University of Manchester | Published October 6, 2016  -  Deadline November 2, 2016

The University of Manchester wishes to appoint a contractor to deliver the Fallowfield Student Residences project.

The University aims to significantly enhance the student experience through a replanning of the Fallowfield Campus, diversifying the range of services and facilities — creating a vibrant student village with hub facilities that support residents on site and the student population within the wider Fallowfield area.

The Campus currently comprises;

— 3 251 student Bedrooms;

— the Central Catering Unit for the whole of the university and local site maintenance, (The Limes);

— 1 of the University's main sports facilities, the Armitage Centre;

— a conference centre and hotel, Chancellors; and

— the Firs Experimental Gardens.

Much of the residential accommodation on the Fallowfield site dates from the 1960's and does not now meet the expectations of students or their parents. The site is underutilised and is capable of accommodating additional student numbers which in turn would support the provision of new, essential support facilities, for example new student hub facilities, which would also serve the needs of the wider student population in the Fallowfield area.

The University's goal is to enhance the strengths of the Campus by replacing much of the existing accommodation with modern and well-designed residences that meet the needs of students today and in the future, complemented with the right support services and amenities.

The Vision for the Fallowfield Residential campus is:

to design, construct and operate the campus in a manner that protects the environment and the health and safety of the students, employees and the public, that conserves natural resources and energy and promotes the health and safety of the University of Manchester community;

financially and commercially viable — a development that ‘takes care of itself’;

a unique, vibrant, modern student village that is a showcase for potential students — a place where everyone wants to live;

diverse range of residential offers, a great range of facilities — a place for everyone;

enhances with the wider Fallowfield area and encourages community — a place where everyone has a sense of belonging;

development which can be built and maintained safely, easily and phased — a construction project that minimises disturbance to residents, users and neighbours;

high quality design that is cost effective, durable, well considered and can be maintained and operated easily and efficiently — a place that lasts; and

contributes to local employment and skills — a project the identifies and creates opportunities to benefit Manchester.

The scope of the Fallowfield Student Residences Phase 1 project comprises:

— preparation of site as required to facilitate new buildings and infrastructure;

— 1 122 Cluster Flat Study bedrooms in 8Nr Blocks, (including Pastoral Units)

— 1 no. Warden's Apartment

— An Amenity Hub within cluster flat Block 108

— Stand-alone replacement of the existing Central Processing Unit (CPU) / Maintenance building

— Associated Energy Centre

— Associated landscaping

— Harmonisation works across the wider site to include landscaping and signage works

— CCTV link to existing location.

Should the University choose to instruct the Contractor to undertake the Phase 2 and Phase 3 works these works are likely to be comprise of the following:

Phase 2 Overview

— Demolition of existing Oak House buildings and The Limes (CPU and Maintenance Unit) including temporary site hoarding and access arrangements to retained buildings

High Temperature Tribometer

The University Of Manchester | Published October 18, 2016  -  Deadline November 17, 2016
The University of Manchester will be home to a new national research and innovation centre in advanced materials, the Sir Henry Royce Institute (SHRI). Announced by the Chancellor, George Osborne, in the 2014 autumn statement, the £293M Institute will grow the UK’s world-leading research base in advanced materials research and development, which is fundamental to all industrial sectors and the national economy. The new Institute, supported by industrial partners, will have its Hub in Manchester. The Manchester Hub will be supported by satellite centres, or ‘spokes’, at the founding partners, comprising the Universities of Sheffield, Leeds, Liverpool, Cambridge, Oxford and Imperial College London, along with National Nuclear Labs (NNL) and the Culham Centre for Fusion Energy (CCFE). The Sir Henry Royce Institute (SHRI) will lead the accelerated discovery and development of advanced materials. A High Temperature Tribometer is required for the evaluation of surface treatments and coatings for high temperature tribological applications, to study friction and wear and characteristics of a variety of bulk materials and coatings under dry and lubricated sliding contact conditions.
