HS2 Main Works S1 & S2 - Photogrammetry

Photogrammetry is the art and science of extracting 3D information from photographs. The process involves taking overlapping photographs of an object, structure or space and converting them into 2D or 3D digital models. The Supplier will be required to attend site to carry out necessary photography work and then use these photos to generate 2d and 3D Models. The expected delivery timescales for this project are from the Summer of 2021 to September 2026 Following responses to this opportunity, the supply chain will be shortlisted accordingly. Those that are successful will be invited to prequalify in order to receive a tender enquiry for the services. Prequalification will consist of 'business assurance', which will focus on the supply chain's capability, competence and capacity to work with SCS JV, as well as technical assurance which provides an opportunity to assess the supply chain's ability to carry out the services in question. Given that this has been classified as a 'low-risk' package, the 'business assurance' element of prequalification may be satisfied if the supply chain partner holds one of the Common Assessment Standard (CAS) accreditations, namely: - Achilles Building Confidence (with Desktop Audit), - Constructionline Gold, or - CHAS Premier (CAS). Further to a tender process, final selection will be based upon a balanced scorecard assessment. The criteria of this assessment will consider commercial, technical and qualitative (e.g. health and safety, quality, environment and sustainability, etc.) evidence provided by the tenderers. SCS JV is an unincorporated joint venture between Skanska Construction UK Limited ("Skanska"), Costain Limited ("Costain") and STRABAG AG ("STRABAG") working on behalf of HS2 to deliver the main civil engineering works for the S1 and S2 sectors of HS2 Phase One. The Early Contractor Involvement (ECI) stage of the contract, where SCS JV was developing a scheme design, programme and target cost to deliver the detailed design and construction phase of the project, is now complete, whereby a Notice to Proceed to Stage Two (detailed design and construction) was issued on 15th April 2020. Not only have the individual companies delivered high-speed rail, major infrastructure and some of the most iconic structures internationally, SCS JV also has a proven record of working together. Skanska and Costain have a long history of successfully delivering civil engineering projects together in the UK, dating back 30 years. In joint venture they have delivered many major infrastructure projects, including the M25 in the 1980s, High Speed 1 in the early 2000s and the current Crossrail endeavour, shortly coming to completion under the streets of London. STRABAG and Skanska have worked together for over 15 years on European projects in Switzerland, Slovakia and Norway.
