This Week's Highlight - ANSTO Seeks Developer for Innovation Precinct

In an age of ‘start up hubs’, ‘accelerators’ and ‘incubators’, it is timely that Australia’s Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation (ANSTO) look to establish a facility of their own to harness and grow Australias nuclear science expertise both in academia and industry. This week ANSTO have released an Expression of Interest seeking a Developer to assist with a proposed Innovation Precinct to be located in Lucas Heights, Sydney. The innovation precinct will be an extension of ANSTO’s existing 70-hectare technology campus at Lucas Heights and aims to link research with an industrial user base through two facilities – a Graduate Institute and a Deep Technology Incubator.

To that end ANSTO is seeking a developer who can fund the project and propose an acceptable revenue sharing model. Potential developers are to consider leasing the land for periods up to 99 years, but note that sale of the land is not an option. Also EOI Registrants may propose models including Public Private Partnership (PPP) based on either a Build-Operate—Transfer (BOT), Build-Own-Operate-Transfer (BOOT) or Build–Own and Operate (BOO) model.

ANSTO is seeking companies with proven experience in this field as a mandatory requirement and has applied tailored evaluation criteria that includes assessing the capabilities of key sub-consultants & sub-contractors, as well as a company’s social connections to the community. This is the first of a two stage procurement and it is expected that between two to four registrants will be selected to respond to the full Request For Tender.

An Optional presentation will be held at the ANSTO Discovery Centre on 22nd May 2018 from 2.00pm to 4.00pm, with the EOI due on the 12 Jun 18.
