Porsgrunn Housing Foundation owns flats in the Porsgrunn area with a portfolio of altogether 300 flats. Most of the flats require major internal upgrading.
Porsgrunn Housing Foundation's ambition is to internally renovate/upgrade a large number of the flats in the next few years.
The Contracting Authority intends to enter into a framework agreement with up to 3 contractors, provided that there are a sufficient number of suitable tender offers received.
It is estimated that approx. 105 flats will be renovated/upgraded during the contract period. Per year this is approx. 30 flats. The Contracting Authority emphasises that the figures are only estimates and that the actual volume may vary from year to year.
One of the characteristics of a framework agreement is that the concrete assignments and the volume of assignments are not concretized when the framework agreement is signed. These conditions are the actual core in the terms for parallel framework agreements. Call-offs will take place as and when the contracting authority's needs materialise. This premise is known by both parties and it involves a risk that the amount of assignments will deviate from the above mentioned estimate — both positively and negatively.
Tenderers must be aware that changes in the financial and/or political framework terms can lead to the estimated amount of assignments being increased/reduced. The contracting authority also reserves the right to withdraw 1 or several properties, or alternatively add 1 or several properties to the assignment as a result of buying/selling, change of use, or changes to other units.
Of consideration to the residents, it is particularly important to the Contracting Authority that the rehabilitation/upgrading is executed as effectively and rationally as possible, so that the residents/tenants can move back in as quickly as possible. The Contracting Authority envisages that the tenderers shall not use more than 4 to a maximum of 6 weeks working on each flat from start to finish.
It is primarily flats with a size of 40 m
