The £100m contract to fit-out the box and portal of the controversial Woolwich Crossrail station has finally come to market.
The four-year job, known as contract C530, includes completion of detailed design and progressing design from RIBA stage E to F.
It also includes construction, manufacture and supply, completion of remaining civil works, installation, testing, commissioning, caretaker period maintenance and handover of the works associated with the station.
The fit-out package had been thrown into doubt after Construction News revealed a government back-up plan to leave the station as a shell, with trains running through without stopping.
However, a funding agreement was struck between Berkeley Homes – which is developing above the station – the Royal Borough of Greenwich and Transport for London, with the latter paying the lion’s share.
The deal was struck last week, just in time to avoid expensive cost hikes to the project.
Also to be managed are the handover of the work’s associated with the box, the North Woolwich Portal fit-out, the Plumstead Portal fit-out and possibly the fit-out of the Connaught tunnel Drainage Headhouse and Support Building.
The range of the contract, operated by Crossrail, is between £75m and £100m.
Expressions of interest must be received by 6 September 2013.
