DESCRIPTION OF REQUIREMENTS
Immediate construction capacity for previously planned or emergent early works and pre-emptive projects is required in the areas of security, conference, conference technologies, information technology, facilities, and infrastructure. Whilst major new building design or existing complete building recapitalization is being prepared, projects to complement and support the CMP must continue, subject to funding and phasing, with one multi-disciplined contractor, with or without subcontracting, prior to tenders of a major new building or current complete office building reconstruction. This contract will provide the modality to have a completed design of a project presented to the contractor as a work/project package to provide and apply pre-qualified and documented unit rates for a fixed price solution on a defined project of multi-disciplined facets. There may be various amounts of funding available during the timeframe of the contract for the types of projects listed below
Projects can vary from fit-outs/early works, civil works, electrical/mechanical works, and architectural matters including sustainability and accessibility, with complex physical solutions for security, health, conference and conference technology, information technology, and integrated building systems.
DESCRIPTION OF PROJECTS:
1.1 DESCRIPTION OF TYPES OF PROJECTS: (Subject to funding: Any of these types of projects may be procured separately outside of this contract, but the type of work is indicative of this contract. Additional information may be available during the mandatory on-site visit during the tendering process) :
1.1.1 PHASED FIT OUT:
Phasing of Niger Building Flexible Workplace-Rebuild floors/Base Building in possible phases. These projects require the phased internal refurbishment of floor areas of the eleven-story of Niger Building with a floor size of approx.1400 sqmts each. The project involves upgrades of the new floor, wall and ceiling finishes, new lighting, communications, Wi-Fi, access controls and general power, dry and wet fire services, doors and door hardware, refurbished wet areas including kitchenette, toilets, and heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system- HVAC.

1.1.5 PHASED UPGRADES OF SECURITY TECHNOLOGY/INFRASTRUCTURE
These projects involve security upgrades to Architectural areas, phased reinforcement, and rebuilding parts of the 1.6km perimeter wall and could centralize three core areas relating to security, access control, and Crisis management facility in a single partitioned space. These include the Crisis Management Team, UNDSS Control & SSS control. Each control section has varied requirements regarding the equipment, furniture, and layout however generally, this project would involve the internal fit-out of an existing or new purpose-built space. This fit-out would include new floor, wall and ceiling finish inc. noise isolation/attenuation, surveillance, new lighting, communications, Wi-Fi, data, access controls, general power, new dry and wet fire services | new doors and door hardware, new fresh air-conditioned supply air | new furniture. The support for significant technology infrastructure located in these spaces would need to be accommodated including such systems as CCTV, IDS (Intruder Detection System), Fire Alarm monitoring, Centralized access lockdown, Satellite connectivity, Cellular Network emergency broadcast, UHF/VHF radio connectivity, general communications, and data. Ground floor building hardening, upgrades, protection, and envelope upgrades may be included.
1.1.60 CONFERENCE Centre and Broadcast Technology upgrades/IT Backbone/Generator-Power requirements and renovations
A Phase 3 upgrade to additional conference rooms and installation of leading-edge conference technologies is under design in 2022/2023 following an initial renovation of two major conference rooms and part of the "back of the house" offices and services. Up to 5 phases are projected in the next decade. Core work on the campus may also include IT Backbone Infrastructure on the campus, and new ECA service Trenches for a campus loop of varied infrastructure. Generator and utility/equipment and fire alarm upgrades and sustainable power options.
1.1.71 HEALTH Clinic Projects including Laboratory Renovations
The UNCC Health Clinic and Laboratory was constructed in the mid-1990s concurrent with the UNCC development. Very little work has been undertaken within the facility since construction. The first phase is to immediately renovate a leading-edge laboratory area and a new clinic or renovated existing clinic area is planned at the end of the decade.
1.1.8 FACILITY PHASED PROJECTS/UPGRADES:
Fit-outs, some building upgrades may be required and a repair of the 2014 Zambezi Building granite exterior cladding is foreseen. Waste Collection, Composting, and Recycling/Sorting Facility in the South of the campus may be required.
1.1.9 PHASED ACCESSIBILITY UPGRADES
Various external areas and building spaces of the ECA compound do not meet international best practices for access for persons with a disability. Elevators rebuild and a new elevator is identified at this time which may include additional scopes for accessible paths of travel and PWD (Person with Disability) physical and architectural needs in the campus. A large Accessibility and Security upgrade of the East Campus pedestrian/roadways, Zambezi/Conference Centre/Clinic/Niger building lobbies, and Clinic/conference/Zambezi elevator is planned for 2024.
