- In summary, the procurement is for the renovation of the Historical Buildings of the Palais des Nations (Buildings A, B, C, D and S), all of which were constructed before 1950. Currently, the baseline for the renovation works is estimated to consist of External Works (1%); Works to the Existing Buildings (15%); Services (41%); Fittings Furnishings & Equipment (4%); Cafeteria Works (5%); Facilitating Works (2%); Superstructure (9%); Internal Finishes (11%); and Conference Room Renovation Works (12%). The baseline will be fixed when the Statement of Works is completed by SOM / B+P.
- The tender action will result in a construction contract based on a modified FIDIC model contract. The SHP Programme schedule foresees contract signature in early May 2019, with works commencing during June 2019 and completed by the end of November 2022, which gives a total contract period of 40 months. The budget for these works is in the range of CHF 240 million to CHF 260 million.
- The buildings host mixed areas of conference rooms and office spaces. The level of intervention varies considerably between individual rooms and office areas: some will be completely refurbished whilst others will involve minor or medium-level interventions (e.g. to replace electrical systems, refurbish suspended ceilings and floors, and to paint walls) but with minimal structural work.
Furthermore, the renovation will be undertaken whilst maintaining business activities in the Palais des Nations (within the affected building as well as in the adjacent buildings).
