This Week's Highlight - Australian National Maritime Museum Upgrades

This week sees the third in a series of Requests for Tender (RFT) issued by the Australian National Maritime Museum (ANNM) over the last month. Based in Sydney, the ANMM has identified the need to replace the current Sea Water Heat rejection equipment with the proposed installation of Cooling Towers in a dedicated cooling tower plantroom. These systems will be used to cool the HVAC equipment and systems. The previous two RFTs called for the provision of the cooling towers and acoustic louvres and these approaches to market are due to close this week. The RFT released this week continues the same scope of work with the provision of Mechanical and Building Works and Associated Equipment that will alter the workshop building to allow for the installation of the cooling towers and the acoustic louvres. The succesful tenderer wil be appointed in a Design and Construct (D&C) capacity under Australian Standard contracting template, AS4902-2000 General Conditions of Contract for Design and Construct.

Being a public museum, there is an expectation that the appointed contractor will maintain all services, access and operational conditions required for the museum to undertake normal services. Of note, is the possibility of novating the cooling tower and accoustic louvre contracts to this D&C contract prior to the delivery of the equipment to bring all installation and commsioning responsibiities under the one agreement.The works are expected to be completed by end February 18. A mandatory site briefing is being held on the 12th October on site. This RFT closes 30 October 18.
