University of Cambridge framework 2022-26

Teams selected for the framework will have the opportunity to work on a range of projects with the historic university whose net assets are valued at around £4.9 billion and is part-way through the creation of a £1 billion urban extension dubbed Eddington.

The four-year framework is divided into six lots covering cost management, project management, architectural, civil and structural engineering, services engineering and building surveying services. Following the completion of a selection questionnaire eligible teams will be invited to tender in April.

According to the brief: ‘The University has an annual income of £2 billion. Research income, won competitively from the UK Research Councils, the European Union, major charities and industry, exceeds £500 million per annum and continues to grow. The university’s mission is to contribute to society through the pursuit of education, learning, and research at the highest international levels of excellence.

‘The estates division is responsible for the planning, development and operation of the university’s operational and investment estates. It employs 350 people and is responsible for capital and operational budgets in excess of £200m. The operational estate is one of the UK’s largest and most diverse, ranging from Grade I-listed buildings to state-of-the-art laboratories and research facilities, museums to a farm and a botanical garden.’

Founded in 1209, the University of Cambridge is the third oldest surviving university in the world and has an annual budget of around £2.3 billion.

Over the past decade the university has been leading on the creation of thousands of new homes and amenities – designed by architects including Stanton Williams, Maccreanor Lavington, Alison Brooks and Witherford Watson Mann – at Eddington on the north west fringes of the historic city.

According to the tender documents the university typically commissions up to five high value construction projects valued above £20 million every year and between 40 and 50 minor works projects valued between £50,000 and £3 million.

The latest framework is expected to cover a range of minor new build construction works, civil and structural engineering works, electrical and mechanical works, fit out and refurbishments, highways works, external works and heritage works.

Round one bids will be evaluated 100 per cent on quality.
