New London procurement panel open

The Mayor of London, and Transport for London, are looking for consultants to join a new architecture, design and urbanism procurement panel which will replace the present LDA framework.

Architects and design professionals are invited to apply for membership of a new consultants’ procurement panel which is being set up by the Mayor of London and Transport for London (TfL) to promote quality architecture, public realm, urban regeneration and sustainable development in the capital.

The Architecture, Design and Urbanism Panel will be a joint GLA and TfL panel also open to use by the London boroughs, housing associations and other public sector organisations involved with the built environment in the capital.   Up to £30 million of work is expected to be procured through the new panel, which will run for three years from 2012 with an option to extend for a further year.

The new panel will replace the current LDA Architecture, Landscape and Urban Design Panel from 2008 and the TfL Urban Realm Design Framework from 2005 and will be managed by the GLA. TfL will act as the procurement agent for the new panel.

Interested consultants need to complete and return a Pre-Qualification Questionnaire by the 7th June 2012. Invitations to tender will be issued in the summer with contracts awarded to successful bidders by October 2012.
