    Tendering in construction introduction Tendering in construction introduction Presentation Transcript

    • Tools: you will need….
      • Pen
      • Paper
      • Calculator
      If you don’t have these then this is your “ A warning”, meaning that you attended but did not take part If you don’t have these next week then do not come to class- you will be marked absent
    • Measuring, Estimating and Tendering Processes
      • There are two assessments which will be worked through in class and largely through directed study.
      • The assessment board states that deadlines must be enforced .
      • Course quality enhancements
      • From January 2009, employers will have access to monitor the SIP (student information portal and moodle) where results and tutor comments are stored on a weekly basis)
      • “ New, “now live” Meetings record -formal and informal.
      • “ New, “now live” Staff and Employer, “Student Tracking ” Facility.
      • Assessment board decisions are independent and are rarely overturned.
      • Good luck
    • Directed study….
      • … .requires considerable individual initiative and require the ability to work independently.
      • … .represents an excellent opportunity for you to design your own learning and allow you to work more closely with other students.
      • Next - go to moodle section 9 and download this file (Tender intro )
    • Btec National Certificate
      • Unit 9 Estimating and Tendering
      • Unit Description
      • provides a fundamental understanding of tendering
      • To enable students to develop a commercial awareness of tendering
    • Aims On completing this unit you will be able to: Understand what procurement is in construction Explain the purpose of tendering. Identify the methods of tendering
    • Summary
      • To achieve this unit a student must be able to:
      • produce a tender
      • formulate an estimate
      • Evaluate different tendering procedures and contractual arrangements
    • What is tendering?
      • To explain tendering we must place it in the context of the process from the client's idea for a building to its construction
      • The client will have approved the architect's design and working drawings will have been produced.
      • The client's quantity surveyor will have measured from these drawings to produce a bill of quantities.
      • The design team now has to select a method of procurement for the project and decide on the best method of tendering.
      • Tendering involves sending out the tender drawings and the bill of quantities or a specification in order to receive prices in the form of estimates from main contractors.
      • Two things need to be considered before the tendering process can be considered - the procurement option and second the contract options:
      • Procurement is the process by which a contractor is selected to construct the building with regard to the contractual arrangement between the parties.
      • The contract option is the contractual arrangement that will exist between the client and the main contractor.
      • There are three main options:
      • Traditional.
      • Design and build.
      • Contract management.
      Procurement options
    • Traditional procurement
      • The client selects a designer, who produces the agreed design.
      • A main contractor is then selected on a competitive bid.
      • The contractor completes the project to handover.
      • The designer supervises the works during this period.
    • Design and build
      • In this method the client selects a main contractor to design the building and then construct it under a single contract.
    • Contracts management
      • A management contractor is employed by the client to manage complex and large projects.
      • This person does not design the work nor directly build it.
    • The following is an exercise to check your understanding of what the different methods of procurement mean
      • Match the procurement options to the correct descriptions
      • 1.The client employs a separate designer and construction company
      • Traditional.
      • 2.The client employs one company for the whole project
      • Design and build.
      • 3.The client employs a manager to run the whole project
      • Contract management
      Procurement options: Traditional-Design and build- Contract management. Purpose of tendering….
      • The primary objective of tendering is to select a main contractor to undertake the construction phase of the project.
      • Before selecting the main contractor a number of factors need to be considered
      • Research the following factors and report on how they affect the project…..
    • Project Assignment Task 7c and 7d Discuss the purpose, aims and objectives of tendering: for main or principal contractors, subcontract and supply packages. (U9-P5) Select a method for tendering for this build and state how and why this matches the build type. (U9-M4/D2) Tip: Give a description of the following different tendering methods and choose which would be suitable for your project.
      • Open tendering.
      • Restricted open tendering.
      • Selective tendering.
      • Negotiated tendering.
      • Serial tendering.
      • Two stage tendering.
      • See the next slide for the Task title and further considerations..............
    • Title -Factors affecting the construction project
      • Consider the size of the project-how will this affect the tendering method?
      • Consider the local economic climate-how will it affect the final price?
      • Give examples of project sises and types and match them with the tender method.
      • See the library for relevant books
