Provision of a Naval Architect, Historic Ships Advisor for the Hull: Yorkshire’s Maritime City (HYMC) Project
Hull City Council is seeking to appoint a suitably qualified and experienced Naval Architect team to provide highly specialised Historic Ship renovation design services, and Project Management, to support the delivery of the ‘Maritime Project’, or Hull: Yorkshire’s Maritime City (HYMC). Hull City Council has been successful in securing funding, including Heritage Lottery funding, for the development of the Maritime Project (Hull: Yorkshire’s Maritime City), which is to include the renovation of existing buildings, including museums, places, and two historic ships linked to Hull’s maritime history, and the creation of new visitor centres and city centre landscaping, including Queen Gardens and associated highways alterations and crossings. Hull City Council is seeking to appoint a Naval Architect team from suppliers that can provide a full maritime design, structural, mechanical & engineering, specialist QS/cost consultancy, and NEC contract administration consultancy, for the development, design, and delivery of the refurbishment of these two historic vessels. Funding is approved in two phases, a development grant which is due for submission in May 2019, and, if the bid is successful, for the delivery of the scheme over five years, the first three of which will be the capital delivery phase (up to September 2022) and which is the period for which the Naval Architect team contract would be required.
