Velká Británie: Obchodní příležitosti v oblasti STAVEBNICTVÍ Poznámka na úvod : Účelem tohoto dokumentu je průběžně informovat české podnikatelské subjekty o připravovaných obchodních příležitostech v oblasti stavebnictví s delším časovým předstihem než je vydán příslušný tendr. Vzhledem ke krátkosti času na předložení tendrové nabídky je potřebné se na avizované velké tendry dlouhodoběji připravovat na roli kontraktora či subkontraktora.

Velká Británie: Obchodní příležitosti v oblasti STAVEBNICTVÍ

Poznámka na úvod:

Účelem tohoto dokumentu je průběžně informovat české podnikatelské subjekty o připravovaných obchodních příležitostech v oblasti stavebnictví s delším časovým předstihem než je vydán příslušný tendr. Vzhledem ke krátkosti času na předložení tendrové nabídky je potřebné se na avizované velké tendry dlouhodoběji připravovat na roli kontraktora či subkontraktora. Tendr je pak veřejně přístupný na webových stránkách GB: (http://www.tendersdirect.co.uk/default.aspx)a EU:(http://ted.europa.eu/Exec?Template=TED/homepage.htm&DataFlow=hRead.dfl&hpt=ALL&StatLang=CS).

Tento dokument je průběžně doplňován o informace získané z jednání v GB, z odborného tisku a z dalších zdrojů. V první části dokumentu naleznete informace obecné. Ve druhé části jsou informace o konkrétních tendrech a dalších obchodních příležitostech. Nejnovější informace (proti předchozí verzi) jsou na začátku každé části tohoto dokumentu a navíc zvýrazněny červenou barvou.

Jsme přesvědčeni, že dokument doplňovaný za delší časové období podá cenný obraz o chronologickém vývoji některých zásadních projektů vyvíjejících se často i několik let. Znalost celého vývoje je často důležitá pro tvorbu obchodní strategie a tvorbu samotných nabídek. Jelikož zejména pro menší a střední podniky je největší šance uplatnit se v roli subdodavatele, podáváme zde také informace o největších GB stavebních subjektech a také o tom, komu byly v poslední době zadány zásadní zakázky.

Při aktualizacích dokumentu spolupracujeme s našim anglickým spolupracovníkem p. Bartosikem a proto jsou informace v angličtině (a jsou tedy v autentické podobě).

Solar Panel Installation2 August 2011Source: Construction EnquirerThe BreyerGroup plc has won a GBP18.5 million contract to install solar panels on public housing for up to 25 London local authorities. The company has also recently won a contract to install solar panels on up to 2,000 homes in the Colchester, Essex area.

Subbies: The Peabody social housing group has selected building contractor Breyer Group to install solar photovoltaic panels on housing stock across 25 London boroughs. The £18.5m programme will see Breyer Group install six megawatts of solar panels, reducing emissions from Peabody homes by around 2,500 tonnes per year.

Farringdon Station obtains Planning Permission10 SeptemberSource: Transport BriefingPlanning Permission has been approved for a new Crossrail/Thameslink integrated tickethall at Farringdon station in London. The station is on the route of the new Crossrail line which will be built in and under London and which will link up Crossrail with existing London rail and underground networks. Work on the station has been let out by Network Rail to a Costain/Laing O’Rourke joint venture and is expected to begin in the very near future. More details are contained in the article below.

Plans for an integrated Crossrail-Thameslink ticket hall at Farringdon have been approved by Islington Council - allowing construction work to get underway immediately.Filed 10.09.2009The new building will face the existing London Underground/Thameslink station entrance across the soon-to-be-pedestrianised Cowcross Street and will become the main entrance to Farringdon's two Thameslink platforms. It will also form the entrance to the Crossrail Farringdon (West) station, providing access to the new deep-level Crossrail platforms that are being built to link the existing Farringdon and Barbican stations.

Phase one of the integrated ticket hall is due to be completed in 2011 and will provide a second entrance to the Thameslink platforms - via lifts and stairs. Phase two is due for completion in 2016 and will allow the building to serve as an entrance to the western end of Farringdon Crossrail station. Access to the Crossrail platforms, which will be built beneath the Thameslink tracks, will be via lifts and escalators leading from the west side of the integrated ticket hall.

A Costain/Laing O'Rourke joint venture will deliver the project on behalf of Network Rail to plans drawn up by Atkins. A planning application for the integrated ticket hall was submitted earlier this year (TB 6104).

Network Rail programme manager Richard Walker said: "Our new station at Farringdon puts passengers first, making it easier to change between trains in a much improved environment. Bringing together Thameslink services, Crossrail and connections to the Tube is common sense."

138

Page 139: Bovis Lend Lease › businessinfo_cz › file… · Web viewNetwork Rail, the UKs rail infrastructure operator, has issued a tender for general building supplies for the refurbishment

John Ball, director of strategy and service development for London Underground added: "By 2017, Farringdon will have been transformed into one of the most important transport hubs in central London. Served by Thameslink, Crossrail and Tube services, passengers will benefit from the ability to make north-south and east-west journeys across London."

The station plans include an eco-friendly brown roof and brings the potential for wider regeneration in the area. When the new ticket hall opens four of the capital's major airports will become accessible directly from Farringdon as they sit on either the Thameslink or Crossrail routes.

A new entrance and passenger footbridge at Farringdon station opened in March this year and by 2012 longer trains will be able to stop at the station. A pedestrian space will be created outside the new ticket hall.

12 AugustSource: Transport Briefing and othersBritish Airports Authority, the owners of Heathrow Airport, have released new plans for the rebuilding of Heathrow terminals 1 and 2. The project to create a space that will cater for up to 20 million passengers a year in 2013 to 30 million once the 2nd phase is completed in 2019. The first phase on the existing terminal 2 site will create a space of 185,000m² which is just over half the area of terminal 5. Once phase 1 is completed the terminal will be extended into the existing terminal 1. The Queens building and the existing terminal 2 are set to be demolished. The project, expected to cost £1 billion, is part of an overall £2.2 billion plan of works for the airport. According to one report the main contractors on site are HETco a joint venture between Ferrovial Agroman and Laing O’Rourke (procurement website in the links). The architect is Foster + Partners. A piece was posted on 2 July detailing the scheme used by the airports for suppliers.http://www.building.co.uk/story.asp?sectioncode=284&storycode=3146608&c=2&encCode=00000000019fa566http://www.transportbriefing.co.uk/news/story?id=6127http://www.cnplus.co.uk/sectors/transport/baa-unveils-new-heathrow-terminal-2-plans/5206526.articlehttp://www.nce.co.uk/getting-the-procurement-right-is-crucial/1994971.articlehttp://www.baa.com/portal/site/baa/menuitem.e348084630125a1935ebbee59328c1a0/http://www.laingorourke.com/contact-us.htmhttp://www.ferrovial.com/en/

Birmingham New Street Station 11 AugustSource: Transport BriefingTransport Briefing has reported that the UK government has granted permission for work to go-ahead on the refurbishment and rebuilding of Birmingham New Street station, a job that is estimated to cost £600 million over 6 years. Part of the station will be closed off to allow for Phase 1 of the work and when that is completed Phase 2 will be started. The first phase of the work is estimated to start on 1 September 2009 and to last until 2012. This phase will involve the building of the new station concourse. The second phase starting when phase 1 is finished will refurbish the existing concourse. When the work is finished there will be 30 escalators, 15 public lifts and a new roof. The sponsors of the scheme are Network Rail, Birmingham City Council, Advantage West Midlands and Centro. The station belongs to Network Rail so any questions on the project should be directed to them – there is a link within this link which gives details on the work that is being carried out. It is important to note that Network Rail procures most of its goods and services from suppliers who are registered with Achilles (link below for more information).

Building Tender Prices Dropped10 August

145

Page 146: Bovis Lend Lease › businessinfo_cz › file… · Web viewNetwork Rail, the UKs rail infrastructure operator, has issued a tender for general building supplies for the refurbishment

Source: Financial Times (27 July)According to a report in the Financial Times contract tender prices on building sites have falling by 4.9 percent for the first 3 months of 2009 and a 6.4 percent drop year on year. Activity in the UK construction sector has fallen from £82 billion to £69 billion a drop of 16 percent. Even the larger construction companies have dropped the minium of amount of work that they will bid for. The report continues that the 8 largest companies in the sector work on an average margin of 2.37 percent which means that any drop in activity will have an affect on their profits. On the Olympic site some of the projects have slowed their present rate of procurement in ‘anticipation of lower prices’.

Global Supply Chain Shift10 AugustSource: Financial Times (10 August, p.1)The Financial Times reported that manufacturers are beginning to change their supply chain habits. They say that there is a reduction of global procurement in favour of regional procurement meaning that European and US companies are looking closer to home rather than to China and the Far East. This is due to the news costs associated with the transportation of components such as carbon footprint and the high cost of petrol.

Olympic Village Tenders6 AugustSource: Construction NewsThe Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA) will announce the tenders for the five remaining Olympic village housing blocks. At present the developer Lendlease (owners of Bovis Construction) will be building five of the 11 blocks while the sixth, which has been tendered previously, is being contested by Galliford Try, Ardmore and Wates. There are five remaining blocks for which there are between 5 and 8 construction companies which have made the shortlist (there are no details of who they are as yet). It is mentioned that the first of the blocks may be tendered out in early August with the rest throughout the autumn. Most of the blocks will be let to tier 1 contractors. There is mention that only half of all tier 2 work has so far been let and it is recommended that sub-contractors get in touch with their tier 1 contractors for work on the schemes. There are also lots of tier 3 and 4 contracts also up for grabs. Also on the Olympic site, Carillion is reported to remain the main contractor on the Olympics media centre even though there were changes to their designs. Some of the work on the centre will be re-tendered. http://www.cnplus.co.uk/technical/2012-olympics/oda-plots-new-tenders-on-2012-village/5205882.article

Winning Airport Work30 June Source: Construction NewsThere are only a small number of companies which own all of the UKs civilian airports. British Airports Authority (BAA) owned by Ferrovial of Spain (Heathrow, Gatwick, Syanstead, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Southampton and Aberdeen); Manchester Airport Group (Manchester International, Bournemouth, East Midlands and Humberside); Peel Holdings (Liverpool, Manchester City Airport, Nottingham, Durham and Tees Valley) among others. BAA is expecting to invest 4.3 billion in Heathrow airport alone up to 2013 with the majority of the investment to take place at Heathrow airport. Work will involve replacing Terminal 2 with 2 new Terminals 2A and 2B. Terminals 3 and 4 will be extensively refurbished. There is also a possibility that a new Terminal 6 and a new runway will be built at the Heathrow but the runway will be dependent upon a political decision and Terminal 6 upon increased airport passenger traffic. BAA have chosen nine complex build contractors and five commodity build integrators.

It is still not certain when the project will be advertised as the UK government has not, as yet, given permission for its building. Both the government and Eon are waiting for a consultation on Carbon Capture and Storage Technology (CCS) which Eon is keen to have fitted during the building stage. If the Kingsnorth plant is approved it will be the first coal fired station to have been built in the UK for 30 years. In addition to this project Eon have a number of other renewable energy projects worth £533 million over the next 5 years. The projects are as follows: 150 MW biomass power station in Bristol (£300 million); 78 wind turbines in various parts of the UK (£167 million); 25 MW biomass power station in Sheffield (£60 million).

As companies scale down the number of houses they build they have also stopped buying land for new housing and are content to sell their existing stock for very little profit so as to generate cash. However as lenders are not being granted mortgages new buyers are finding it very difficult to get on the housing ladder causing a greater downturn in sales. http://www.rics.org/Practiceareas/Builtenvironment/Constructionmarket/cms_q208_r_020708.htm
