€150m Copenhagen project soon coming up for tender

A large new residential building project in central Copenhagen, called Fremtidens Sølund (Sølund of the Future), is being put up for tender in September 2018. With a budget of €150m (DKK 1.1 billion) the project covers almost 40,000 m2 of buildings, including 360 assisted living facilities, 150 accommodations for young people, 20 for seniors, a day care centre, three shops and public and private parking facilities.

The construction project, which will be put to tender as a turnkey contract, will be carried out in two stages beginning in 2018. Fremtidens Sølund will be completed by 2022.

Architectural firm C.F. Møller Danmark A/S has drawn up a project proposal. The procurement contracts and building project will be carried out by KAB (building and housing administration), which is the business manager for SAB (cooperative housing).

The bid will be conducted as a reverse tender, where the project proposal’s individual parts are priced and the optimisation proposals submitted simultaneously. The goal is to obtain offers that, to the largest degree possible, meet the functional and architectural descriptions contained in the project description and that can be planned and executed within the established budget.

The turnkey contract up for tender comprises two phases as it is assumed that the contracting entity and the general contractor will collaborate on the optimisation and clarification of the project during phase 1. The main project and construction will subsequently be carried out at a fixed price. The general contract will describe the breakdown of the phases in detail.

SAB expects to prequalify three applicants for participation during the negotiation process.
