The UK's Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA) has issued contract notices to establish both a building services and a civil engineering works framework of a maximum of three companies per contract for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. The scope of building services works includes the design, supply, installation and, if required, maintenance and removal of the building services. It comprises as a minimum: mechanical, electrical, public health services, life safety systems and other building systems required for operational use to a number of venues and other facilities and sites. Meanwhile, the scope of civil engineering works may comprise some or all of the following: design, construction and/or removal and/or reuse or recycling (by the same contractor) of the civil engineering, substructure, and below–ground service installations on a number of venues, facilities and locations for the London 2012 Games. Interested bidders may only express interest via the eTendering website (https://etenders. london2012. com/web/login. shtml). Expressions sent by any other means will not be accepted. Those expressing an interest must complete a PQQ and are advised to submit expressions of interest (EOI) at the earliest opportunity in order to allow sufficient time for completion of the PQQ. Please note that interested bidders must meet the ODA's mandatory pre–qualification requirements. The deadline for expressions of interest and completed PQQ submissions for the building services works is 12pm BST on Wednesday 24 December 2008 via the eTendering website. The deadline for expressions of interest and completed PQQ submissions for the civil engineering works is 12pm GMT on 9 January 2009 via the eTendering website. The Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA) has also issued a contract notice for construction of the Water Polo pools for competition and training during the Games. It is envisaged that the works will comprise the design and construction of the pools and associated elements, including decking surrounds, walkways, handrails, plant, filtration, pool heating and plumbing systems and pool drainage. There may also be a requirement to carry out site preparation works and/or some general building works. The groundworks, envelope and services are not included within this scope of works and will be procured via a series of other works packages. Following the conclusion of the London 2012 Games, the pools may need to be removed/recycled as part of the scope of works, together with the potential relocation of one or more of the pools. The deadline for expressions of interest and completed PQQ submissions is Monday 12 January 2009 via the eTendering website. Those successful in qualification will be invited to tender. Following an economic review, London 2012 organisers have announced that they will stick with the temporary venues to be created for the basketball and equestrian events for the Games but may move badminton, handball and rhythmic gymnastics from their current planned locations.
