Race starts for Sellafield £250m steelwork and cladding deal

Sellafield’s project delivery team is starting the hunt for two key delivery partners for a combined steelwork and cladding package worth nearly £250m over 18 years.

The tender is the latest to hit the market from a new pioneering procurement model that uses Project 13-style integrated collaborative teams.

The big procurement shake-up is being delivered by Programme and Project Partners (PPP), driving forward the clean-up of the Sellafield site in West Cumbria.

This overarching integrated team is made up of a Kellogg Brown and Root (Integration Partner); Jacobs (Design and Engineering Partner); Morgan Sindall Infrastructure (Civils Construction Management Partner) and Doosan Babcock (Process Construction Management Partner), and Sellafield.

Peter Hogg, the PPP head of supply chain, said: “We are keen to hear from potential key delivery partners to take part in an exciting long-term partnership to design and deliver steelwork and cladding of industrial buildings at the Sellafield site.

“This is the latest Multi Project Procurement process to be announced and we are looking forward to hearing from innovative organisations in these fields.”

The package includes early contractor involvement, final design, temporary works,  supply and erection services. Contracts may be divided into two lots, due to the scale of the undertaking.

Key delivery partners will be expected to deliver a third of their works using small and medium-sized enterprises.

A full strategy paper outlining the procurement approach, commercial model, timeline, and other important information will be issued to interested firms at the start of the market engagement phase, which runs until 2 February 2022.
