The University of Chester is seeking to appoint two sets of advisers to help deliver a £30m residential block to house 1,000 students on a site recently purchased north of the main campus on Parkgate Road, Chester.
Two separate tenders have been published: one for architects and engineers, the other for quantity surveyors and employers agents.
The project is to be delivered in two phases with 400 units to be ready for academic year 2011-12 and the remaining 600 units to be ready for academic year 2012-13.
Fees will be agreed on a fixed basis for the full project. The university will allow consortia bids for these services but there must be one contracting party who will lead and co-ordinate all other members of the consortia.
