Requirements

The service provider is required to have extensive experience in design and architectural services as well as managing engineering, quantity surveying and construction costings. Preferably the service provider has experience in working with clients / projects in Cambodia that involve:

(a) Complex interests and considerations such as cultural, environmental and budgetary

Activities

1. Development of design brief based on stakeholder and community consultation.

The service provider will contribute to the agenda for the visioning meeting with Tmat Boey community and interact with the community to understand their perspective, aspirations, concerns. From this the service provider will develop a design brief to be presented back to SVC and all stakeholders.

2. Development of three visual concepts based on the agreed brief

Three visual concepts that speak to the design brief will be developed and presented to SVC, the community and other stakeholders. The three visual concepts will be discussed and this feedback will be incorporated into the chosen design direction. The service provider will indicate construction cost considerations at this point as part of the evaluation process.

3. Develop final design direction and site plan

Incorporating feedback from the 3 visual concepts a final design direction and site plan will be developed. This will go through at least three rounds of feedback and revision before becoming final.

4. Technical drawings, engineering plans

Based on final design direction and site plan technical drawings will be developed including water, power and sanitation plans. These drawings will be accompanied with full quantity assessment of required materials.

5. Final designs, technical drawing, specifications and indicative costings

The service provider will arrange quotations from three separate contractors and organize review meetings with those contractors and SVC management. Based on those meetings there will be one final round of revisions on the technical drawings and specifications based on feedback from prospective contractors. The service provider will provide indicative costing for the project with sensitivities that speak to: material choice, number of buildings, use of local labor and materials. The service provider is not liable for actual cost outcomes of the project as long as assumptions are made based on best and reasonable quotes and understanding at that point in time
