Construction partner needed for Stockbridge Village revamp

Michael Hunt

Knowsley Council has published a tender for a construction partner contract to help deliver its Stockbridge Village regeneration masterplan.

The masterplan currently under development includes a new build neighbourhood centre, complete with leisure and youth facilities and a cafe.

A new integrated children, family and education centre complete with primary school, nursery, community library, enhanced children's centre and facilities collected around a new public square, are also part of the plans.

The masterplan also includes a new retail unit and an advanced separately funded play pathfinder which is due to start on site in January. An extension to the existing doctors surgery will be the subject of a separate procurement by the Primary Care Trust.

Funding is likely to be from a variety of sources, including the council's own resources such as leisure facilities strategy, schools primary capital programme and working neighbourhoods fund, as well as the Department for Children Schools and Families co-location fund. The total figure has a value of between £20m-£30m.

Subject to the delivery during the project, Knowsley Council may consider including all or part of its future primary capital programme and other programmes through this procurement notice for awards of contracts within the next four years.

A single constructor partner will be selected against quality and cost.

The planned opening date of the new integrated primary school is September 2011. By this time, all other services and public realm will be sufficiently in place to support the operation of the children, family and education centre within Stockbridge Village.

Deadline for submitting tenders is 12pm on Thursday 7 January 2010.
