West Ham invites bids for £100m Olympic Stadium conversion

The race has begun for a £100 million contract to convert the Olympic stadium in Stratford into the new home of West Ham United.

The Olympic Stadium Conversion Works contract includes the design and construction works for the transformation of the site post games into a multi-use venue capable of hosting 60,000 football fans, 74,000 athletics fans and 90,000 concert goers.

Works will include the extension or replacement of the existing stadium roof to cover the majority of seating, the installation of general spectator and additional hospitality facilities, new office and retail accommodation and the provision of a warm-up community track and field facility to be located adjacent to the stadium.

The successful bidder will be expected to pursue full planning permission, will be responsible for all aspects of design and will oversee delivery of works on site.

The contract will commence in August this year and all transformation works will be completed by May 2014 to allow for a series of test events prior to the full operational use of the stadium from the start of the 2014/15 football season.

Legacy Stadium Partnership LLP is the Special Purpose Vehicle formed between the London Borough of Newham and West Ham United and will be the contracting party for the purposes of the project.

The award of the contract will be conditional on the SPV entering into acceptable commercial terms with the Olympic Park Legacy Company.

PQQs should be submitted by 15 May 2011 and between five and 10 firms will then be invited to tender.

Invitations to tender will be sent on 23 May 2011.
