The job will run for 21 months

The 21-month contract will include providing new energy and air-handling plants, re-configuring the hospital’s existing energy centre and installing a new vacuum insulated evaporator.

It will also include ductwork to critical areas such as theatres, pathology units, the special care baby unit and the delivery suite.

The trust is looking to shortlist five firms, which will then be narrowed down to two in the second stage of the tender process.

The works have already been designed up to RIBA stage 3A by a team consisting of engineering consultant DSSR, Floyd Slaski Architects and structural engineer Campbell Reith.

The winning M&E contractor will initially be appointed on a pre-construction services agreement, under which it will develop the design and tender the works packages in order to determine the final contract price.

A full contract notice is expected to be published on 25 November.
