Paddington Churches Housing Association is inviting bids for a £110 million contract to design and build 704 unit mixed-tenure housing scheme in Stratford, East London.
The scheme comprises the construction of seven blocks - five are ten storeys high , one is forty three storeys high, and one is an existing five storey building to be extended by two storeys.
The properties will range in use from affordable rented to high value private sales, with one block providing extra care facilities. There will also be ground floor space available for commercial use.
All foundation works including the construction of a basement have been completed as has the concrete superstructure up to the fourth level of two of the blocks.
Five firms will be shortlisted and invited to tender in January 2010 with a return date in March 2010. Contractors have until 27 November to submit pre-qualification questionnaires.
Work is expected to start on site by May 2010 and completed within 32 months.
Due to the site’s proximity to the Olympic Park, all external elevations and external works must be completed at least four weeks before the start of the Olympic Games.
