On September 25th The Council of The Capital Region of Denmark approved the tender conditions for The New North Zealand Hospital. This initiates the pre-qualification for the design contest and total-consulting services contract.
The design contest and total consultancy services contract will be performed as a usual two-phase model. Phase 1 is this design contest with 1-3 winners (among whom the contracting authority undertakes to enter into a contract). Phase 2 is a subsequent negotiated procedure under Article 31 of the Public Procurement Directive, with the participation of the 1-3 winners of the design contest.
The contract which is expected to be entered into with the winner (after the phase 2 negotiated procedure) on total consultancy services will materially be based on the principles in ABR 89 (the General Conditions for Consulting Services), and the services will mainly be described according to Danske ARK and FRI's descriptions of technical consulting services.
Construction management will be the subject of an invitation to tender as a special service outside this contest/procurement procedure. Since neither the project, nor the contracts for work or the procurement procedures as bases for the project are known by the contracting authority at present, it is expected that it will be part of the total consultancy services contract and the service that certain elements of the total project should perhaps only be designed up to preliminary design.
