Project Description

Alliance Homes

MMC Technical Advisory Services

Modular Building Consultants Ltd were commissioned by Alliance Homes Limited to provide MMC Technical Advisory Services. This involved giving specialist modular construction advice and support for their major new development at Selworthy Road, Weston-Super-Mare.

Our role was to assist Alliance Homes with sourcing a suitable manufacturer/ contractor who could delivery up to 60 new homes using off-site construction.

Following a detailed brief from the client, we created a performance specification and tender document that detailed all the requirements for the project including:

  • Building design life
  • Structural performance requirements
  • Internal and external building requirements
  • Contractual obligations
  • Warranties

Due to the contract value the project was subject to and advertised in the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU). This involved creating specific tender documents with detailed evaluation criteria and carrying out the tender to the required OJEU standards.

Following the tender returns, a detailed review was carried out based on the tender criteria. Using our knowledge and understanding of the modular systems, we provided accurate evaluation and scoring. In addition, post tender interviews were carried out and due diligence reports provided on the short listed companies.

A preferred bidder was identified, and final negotiations involved factory visits to clarify and agree matters regarding the price and quality of the bid.

A full audit trail of the entire process was provided which has been documented for any future audit requirements.
