Historic England seeks Chartered Architectural Technologists for three-year framework

Historic England has launched a new framework for projects on its estate.

Between four and six teams will be selected for the framework, which is estimated to be worth around £450,000 in fees and will cover a series of repair and upgrade projects focusing on the heritage watchdog's property portfolio.

The framework is divided into two lots covering the organisation's North and Midlands Territory and South West, South East and London Territory respectively. Buildings in the first lot include Historic England's York Office, Newcastle Office, Manchester Office, Baguley Hall in Manchester and the Shrewsbury Flaxmill Maltings.

The second lot will feature the Bristol Office, Swindon Office, Cambridge Office, London Office, Fort Cumberland in Portsmouth and Bow Hill in Exeter. 

The brief states: "The services of an Architect/Chartered Building Surveyor/Chartered Architectural Technologist for works projects on the Historic England Estate. To include, when required, fulfilling the role of Principal Designer and Lead Professional. And when a project requires, services of a range of professional team roles."

The latest framework will focus on works across Historic England's estate, which includes a number of historic buildings used as offices across the country.

Bids for inclusion on the framework will be evaluated 55% on quality, 10% on social value and 35% on cost. Applicants must hold employer's liability insurance of £5 million, public liability insurance of £5 million and professional indemnity insurance of £5 million.
