The Olympic Legacy Development Corporation is seeking a contractor for design and construction of transformations to roofing and structural steelworks on the Olympic Stadium.
The 21-month project, as part of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park regeneration, is part of wider work which will see the Stadium turned into the new national competition stadium for athletics.
It is to become a multi-purpose venue capable of hosting winter ball sports, athletics, and other sporting and cultural events.
The roofing contract is to include deconstruction of the stadium cable net roof, off-site work for construction of a prototype to inform erection methodology, and off-site supply fabrication and installation of some roof units.
The London Borough of Newham have offered a £40m investment towards the transformation costs for the stadium, which will be retained as a public asset.
The LLDC is also currently procuring a main contractor to deliver the shell-and-core transformation works.
It is expected that the roofing and structural steelwork contract will be obliged to the main contractor – tenderers are expected to confirm that they will have no objections to working with the shortlisted main contractors.
It is expected that work will be started on site before the main contractor is appointed.
Tenderers are also required to have turned over £120m in each of the past three years.
At least one member of any consortia bids must have turned over £40m in each of the past three years.
Interested parties can contact the LLDC by 7 May 2013 at:
