Description of the goods or services required
Manufacture, supply, installation, cleaning and maintenance and storage if required of Bomb Blast Net Curtains used across the Parliamentary Estate.
To ensure value for money, the quality required shall ensure that the products remain in operational use beyond any minimum warranty period (estimated at 5 years) regardless of works scheduled during their natural lifecycle; the ability to ensure continuity of service for each bomb blast net curtain is essential. The estimated value of the contract includes the bulk purchase, delivery, installation and bi-annual cleaning of the bomb blast net curtains across all the Parliamentary Estate buildings.
The purchase cost is for the procurement and manufacture of duplicate sets of curtains for each window surveyed. The sum shall include the initial delivery and appropriate labelling of the nets for ease of retrieval.
It is estimated that the annual maintenance and exchange costs will be subject to the storage location and transit of the BBNC on and off the Estate. Subject to approval, there may be provision for a reasonable level of storage provided locally.
As well as the Palace of Westminster there are 9 other parliamentary buildings. Individual buildings have differing requirements for Bomb Blast Net Curtains.
Buildings may be added to, or removed from, the Parliamentary Estate as operational requirements change, but the successful Contractor will be required to adjust their services as necessary during the lifetime of the agreement.
