                                                 Notice to Tenderers


1          All items within these documents are to be separately and individually priced. Tenderers are requested to make all
           entries (pricing, initialling etc) clear and legible in black ink.

           A fully priced copy of the specification is to be delivered with the tender documents in the envelope provided at
           the date of tender.

2          Any/all items, which have no price set against them, shall be deemed to have been included within the value of other
           items for the purpose of the tender and no further value or extra sums will be allowed against such items. Where a rate
           is requested please insert.

3          Seek guidance on any item, which appears to be incomplete, unclear, ambiguous or open to more than one
           interpretation, as no consideration will be given subsequently to extra costs on the grounds of any misunderstanding.



4          Quantities if stated are to be used as guidance only. The contractor is completely responsible for measurement and
           confirming all quantities and all further information. The Contractor is also responsible for checking all dimensions and
           areas for carrying out all works necessary.

5          Our target for the contract is 3 working weeks from the date of possession. Please also complete your proposed
           contract period in the Form of Tender.

7          All pages of the priced specification are to be initialled by Tenderers as proof of reading.

8          The Contractor’s outline proposed programme, showing the sequence and timing of the principal parts of the works
           must be submitted with the tender. A detailed contract programme is to be submitted for the Employer’s approval prior
           to signature for the contract documents and is to be based upon the outline programme.


9          Tenderers are to note that properties forming this contract will be occupied during the Works and they should allow for
           this in their pricing.

10         Before tendering, visit the site to ascertain the exact nature of the work and the restrictions of the site.

11         The pricing of the Preliminaries is to be by way of fixed amounts in respect of the whole of the work included in the
           specification including all provisional and contingency items. The contractor is requested to price separately each and
           every item that he wishes to carry a monetary value. The contractor will be required to provide a suitable breakdown of
           the Preliminaries as submitted for the CA’s agreement and for the purpose of ascertaining values for payments.



12         The Employer may wish to vary or omit works by way of adjustment of either works as set out or the provisional sums
           and no claim for loss of profit will be entertained.


           Failure to comply with one of the above requirements may result in the tender being rejected.

                  workmanship are not fully detailed or specified they are to be:
                  - Of a standard appropriate to the Works and suitable for the functions stated

                  - To the satisfaction of the CA.

       121        GENERAL QUALITY OF PRODUCTS AND MATERIALS:
                  Products to be new unless otherwise specified.
                  For products specified to a British or European Standard obtain certificates
                  of compliance from manufacturers when requested by CA.
                  Where a choice of manufacturer or source of supply is allowed for any
                  particular product, the whole quantity required to complete the work must be
                  of the same type, manufacture and/or source unless otherwise approved.
                  Produce written evidence of sources of supply when requested.

                  Ensure that the whole quantity of each product required to complete the
                  work is of consistent kind, size, quality and overall appearance.
                  Where consistency of appearance is desirable ensure consistency of supply
                  from the same source. Unless otherwise approved do not use different colour
                  batches where they can be seen together.
                  If products are prone to deterioration or have a limited shelf life, order in
                  suitable quantities to a programme and use in appropriate sequence. Do not
                  use if there are any signs of deterioration, setting or other unsatisfactory
                  condition.

       130        PROPRIETARY PRODUCTS:
                  - Handle, store, prepare and use or fix each product in accordance with its

                  Inform CA if these conflict with any other specified requirement. Submit
                  copies to CA when requested.
                  - The tender will be deemed to be based on the products specified and
                  recommendations on their use as described in the manufacturers' literature
                  current at 1 September 1998
                  - Obtain confirmation from manufacturers that the products specified and
                  recommendations on their use have not been changed since that time. Where
                  such change has occurred, inform CA and do not place orders for or use the
                  affected products without further instructions.
                  - Where British Board of Agrément certified products are used, comply with
                  the limitations, recommendations and requirements of the relevant valid

                  - The sources, types, qualities, finishes and colours are correct, and match
                  any approved samples.
                  - All accessories and fixings which should be supplied with the goods have
                  been supplied.
                  - Sizes and dimensions are correct. Where tolerances of components are
                  critical, measure a sufficient quantity to ensure compliance.
                  - The delivered quantities are correct, to ensure that shortages do not cause
                  delays in the work.
                  - The products are clean, undamaged and otherwise in good condition.
                  - Any products which have a limited shelf life are not out of date.

       150        PROTECTION OF PRODUCTS:
                  - Prevent over-stressing, distortion and any other type of physical damage.

                  - Keep clean and free from contamination. Prevent staining, chipping,
                  scratching or other disfigurement, particularly of products exposed to view
                  in the finished work.
                  - Keep dry and in a suitably low humidity atmosphere to prevent premature
                  setting, moisture movement and similar defects. Where appropriate store off
                  the ground and allow free air movement around and between stored
                  products.
                  - Prevent excessively high or low temperatures and rapid changes of
                  temperature in the products.
                  - Protect adequately from rain, damp, frost, sun and other elements as
                  appropriate. Ensure that products are at a suitable temperature and moisture
                  content at time of use.
                  - Ensure that sheds and covers are of ample size, in good weatherproof
                  condition and well secured.
                  - Keep different types and grades of products separately and adequately
                  identified.
                  - So far as possible keep products in their original wrappings, packings or
                  containers, until immediately before they are used.
                  - Wherever possible retain protective wrappings after fixing and until shortly
                  before Practical Completion.
                  - Ensure that protective measures are fully compatible with and not
                  prejudicial to the products/materials.

       161        SUITABILITY OF RELATED WORK AND CONDITIONS: Ensure that all
                  trades are provided with necessary details of related types of work. Before
                  starting each new type or section of work, ensure that:
                  - Previous, related work is appropriately complete, in accordance with the
                  project documents, to a suitable standard and in a suitable condition to

                  - All necessary preparatory work has been carried out, including provision
                  for services, openings, supports, fixings, damp proofing, priming and
                  sealing.
                  - The environmental conditions are suitable, particularly that the building is
                  suitably weather tight when internal components, services and finishes are
                  installed.

                                             Window Care System

      OPTION A – REPAIR TO ERODED SECTIONS.

     1           Window Care Dry Flex RP allows insitu repair of timber affected by wood decay. It is advisable
                 to take into account the strength of the construction after repair. For example, in situations
                 where the timber is "load bearing", it may be appropriate to use timber splice in accordance with
                 Repair Method Number 5.

     2           Remove all decayed wood with the Window Care Profi using the Round Cutter. Continue to
                 remove the decayed wood until sound timber is reached.

                 The sound timber can be recognised by the high pitch sound of the Window Care Profi, it is
                 generally of harder structure and uniform colour.

     3
                 Lightly sand the surface of the timber using a medium grade abrasive paper. Check that the
                 moisture content is below 18% using the Window Care Wood Condition Meter CS1.

                 Apply hot air using a Hot Air Blower at 60-80°C.
                 Avoid burning the timber fibres, this ensures good adhesion of Dry Flex RP.

     4
                 Ensure that the adjoining paint system is removed up to 10mm from the vicinity of the repair.

     5           Mix the required quantity of Dry Fix Wood Stabilizer in the correct ratio.

                 Apply the Dry Fix well into the surface using a small brush. Wipe off any excess Dry Fix.
                 Leave for 25-30 minutes before applying the Dry Flex RP.

     6           Mix the Dry Flex RP thoroughly until a homogeneous "butter-like" mass is achieved.

     7           Apply the Dry Flex RP using plastic modelling knives available from Window Care Systems
                 Limited. For more complex repairs use perspex plates for "shuttering."

     8
                 Apply hot air to the surface of Dry Flex RP for a few minutes. This is optional and is only
                 recommended at times when wet weather can be anticipated or application at low temperatures.

     9           Ensure that the Dry Flex RP is completely dry (normally 24 hours are required at 20°C) and
                 longer periods when applied under low temperature conditions.

     10          Use the Window Care Scraper to remove 'excess' cured Dry Flex RP.

     11          Sand the repaired areas lightly to achieve an even, smooth surface before painting with an alkyd
                 or water-based paint system.

     *           Check with the Specifier, if, Window Care DRY PIN is to be used.

     *           Where applicable, DRY PIN should be applied as illustrated in the "Systems" Brochure.

                 A test application is always advisable before commencing work.

                                             Window Care System

      OPTION B – REPAIR USING PART TIMBER SPLICE REPLACEMENT.


                 Cut out the decayed wood at an angle of 75° until the sound timber is reached. The timber may
                 be cut using a saw, chisel or Window Care Profi.


                 The strength of the construction after repair should be taken into account. In situations
                 where the timber is load bearing", the use of steel reinforced rods may be necessary.

                 For normal repair by "splicing in timber", follow the procedure below:

     1           Prepare the new timber splice (moisture content <18%) in such a way that there is a seam/gap
                 of at least 4mm between the contact areas, use the Window Care Wood Condition Meter CS1 to
                 measure the moisture content.

     2           If the contact areas of the existing wood have a moisture content of over 18%, blow dry the
                 affected area using a hot air blower at a temperature of 60-80°C. Strip the existing paint finish up
                 to at least10mm from the joint on existing timber.

                 Ensure that the new timber is left clean and un-primed during the fixing process.

     3           Apply Window Care Dry Fix Wood Stabilizer to the end grain of the existing timber and the new
                 timber splice using a brush. Work the Dry Fix well into the surface. Leave for about 25-30
                 minutes.

                 Apply Dry Flex RP on all areas of contact (already treated with Dry Fix).


                 Use a 4mm "space" at the joint and secure the new timber splice in position using a perspex
                 fixing plate. Fill the "joint" with Dry Flex RP and smooth the surface using a plastic knife.

                 Avoid any surface irregularities.

     4
                 Allow at least 24 hours drying at 20°C before any surface sanding and subsequent painting.

                 At lower temperatures allow a longer period of time for Dry Flex RP to dry.

                 The fixing plate can be removed when the Dry Flex RP has dried completely.

                 Use the Window Care Scraper to remove 'excess' cured Dry Flex RP.


                 Sand the Dry Flex RP lightly. Remove dust/dirt before painting with an alkyd or water-based
                 paint system.

     *           Check with the Specifier, if, Window Care Dry Pin is to be used.

     *           Where applicable, DRY PIN should be applied as illustrated in the "Systems" Brochure.

                 A test application is always advisable before commencing work.

                                                      Job Number:
                                        Scaffolding, Rubbish Shutes Gantry


                                      Scaffolding Best Practice
Before erecting any scaffold on the public highway you need to get permission from the Local Authority and be issued with
a Licence. All the terms and conditions of the Licence must be met, including the payment of the deposit notified before the
structure is erected. Applications should be made to the Highways Licensing Section.

Great care must be taken when erecting or dismantling scaffolding on or near the public highway. The scaffolding
contractor and the main contractor share responsibility for ensuring that work is carried out safely. All too often accidents
involving members of the public and their property are caused by bad working practices.

Scaffolding must comply with the following conditions
After the scaffolding has been erected, any diagonal cross-bracing used at ground level must be removed at once to allow
unobstructed pedestrian access. A width of at least 1.8 metres and a headroom clearance of at least 2.44 metres are required
for pedestrians to pass, unless other arrangements are agreed by the Local Authority.

While a scaffold is being erected, signs should be prominently displayed saying “Scaffold is incomplete”.
Vertical scaffold poles erected on the pavement must not be closer than 0.45 metres to the kerb edge, unless other
arrangements have been agreed with Local Authority.

Scaffolding that projects beyond the kerb edge must have at least 4.88 metres clearance above the surface of the
carriageway.

Where agreement has been obtained to erect the scaffold nearer than 0.45 metres to the kerb edge, baulk timbers 300mm x
300mm must be placed on the carriageway for the full length of the scaffolding. These timbers must be painted red and
white and fitted with red bulkhead lights at 3 metre intervals.

Continuous timber or sole plates may not be placed on the highway.

Scaffolding must be lit from half an hour after sunset to half an hour before sunrise.

On the inside of the structure, white bulkhead lights must be set at each end of the structure 2.44 metres high and at 3 metre
intervals. Similarly, on the outside of the structure red bulkhead lights must be set at each end of the structure 2.44 metres
high and at 3 metre intervals high and at 3 metre intervals. The diagram overleaf indicates the Local Authority‟s general
requirements.


Where a scaffold is longer than 3 metres, the Local Authority will insist that you provide “escape routes” for pedestrians at
3 metre intervals. The Crime Prevention Officer at the local Metropolitan Police Station may request more onerous
requirements. You must obtain approval in principle for any such structure before a licence is issued.

Standards must be painted white up to a height of at least 2.44 metres.

Any couplings below 2.44 metres must be fixed so that any projection, or threaded or clamp fixing, is on the opposite side
to pedestrians.

Horizontal scaffold poles, such as handrails, must be fitted with plastic end caps or otherwise made safe, as directed by the
Local Authority.

Scaffolding, scaffold boards, temporary roofs and sheeted scaffolds must be properly secured to resist high winds. Sheeted
scaffolds are particularly vulnerable to wind damage from the “sail effect”.

Scaffolding must not obstruct access by emergency services vehicles.

If there is any risk of falling material injuring passing pedestrians or hitting vehicles, you must erect a protective scaffold
fan. For instance, a scaffold fan is needed when operating cradles or carrying out masonry work.

Fans or screens must be wide enough to provide complete protection to the public, and to prevent material of any kind from
falling onto the public highway.
Ringley Chartered Surveyors                          Appendix 2b6d772a-aefa-41a0-be4f-5544c81a6486.xls
                                                      Job Number:
                                        Scaffolding, Rubbish Shutes Gantry

Fans that project to within 0.45 metres of the kerb edge must have at least 2.44 metres clearance above the surface of the
public highway. Fans projecting beyond this line must have at least 4.88 metres clearance above the surface of the
carriageway.


                                        CLEANING BUILDINGS
When cleaning the exterior of buildings, ensure that no cleaning materials, sand, grit, or water fall onto the public highway.
Water spray must be confined to the face of the building and be channelled across the footway. The scaffold to the building
shall be completely encased in plastic sheeting, which must be securely tied.

Stone cleaning operations may be restricted to times outside normal working hours. Contact the 24 Hour Noise and Dust
team to obtain permission. We also advise you to consult the Local Authority‟s Development Division before cleaning any
listed building.


                           GANTRIES, HOISTS AND SITE HUTS
Before erecting any gantry or hoist no the public highway you need to get permission from the Local Authority and be
issued with a licence. All the terms and conditions of the licence must be met, including the payment of the deposit notified,
before the structure is erected. Applications should be submitted to the Highways Licensing Section.

Permission will not be granted for the erection of gantries for storing materials or as working platforms for hoists and
associated equipment if there is any practical alternative on site.

The Local Authority does not allow site huts for offices to be put on gantries on or over any part of the public highway.
Offices must be contained within the boundaries of your site.

If there is not enough space on site for accommodation, you should use alternatives such as rented office space. Only in
exceptional circumstances will temporary accommodation on a gantry be allowed, and then only for welfare and messing
facilities. Again, you should apply to the Highways Licensing Section.

Gantries must comply with the following requirements:

Gantry platforms must be double-boarded with polythene sheeting between each layer and set at a minimum headroom
clearance of 2.44 metres from the surface of the doorway. The outer standards or columns of the gantry must be encased in
plywood up to 1.22 metres high and boxed in at the top.

Once the gantry has been erected, any bracing etc used at ground level, or less than 2.44 metres above the footway, must be
removed to allow safe passage by pedestrians.

Any gantry that projects beyond the kerb edge must have at least 4.88 metres clearance above the surface of the
carriageway.

Gantries must be lit from half an hour before sunrise.


On the inside of the structure, white bulkhead lights must be set each end of the structure 2.44 metres high and at 3 metre
intervals. Similarly, on the outside of the structure, red bulkhead lights must be set at each and at 3 metre intervals.

The following diagram indicates the Local Authoritys‟ general requirements:

Mechanical or platform hoists must not descend onto, or operate from the public highway. Permission will only be granted
for hoists to be operated only from gantry platforms at first floor level or above.


Gin wheels and other forms of rope or cable must be used only on the outside of scaffolding, and then only when the
scaffolding reaches the kerb edge. In these circumstances building materials must be hoisted from the carriageway and are
never permitted over the footway. Any other kind of hoisting must be carried out on private land.
Ringley Chartered Surveyors                          Appendix 2b6d772a-aefa-41a0-be4f-5544c81a6486.xls
                                                      Job Number:
                                        Scaffolding, Rubbish Shutes Gantry

The hoisting of hot tar buckets is not permitted on the road except from a gantry platform, and is never permitted from the
footway.


                                             RUBBISH CHUTES
To protect passing pedestrians, rubbish chutes can be used only when fixed to a supporting scaffold gantry which has a
minimum clearance of 2.44 metres over the footway. To stop dust or debris escaping, chutes must be completely enclosed
and covered at the discharge end, (which includes lorries and skips), to stop dust or debris escaping and must be moved
aside when not in use. They must be fixed or tied to the supporting gantry or scaffold.


                                                   HOARDINGS
Before erecting a hoarding on the public highway you need to get permission from the Local Authority and be issued with a
licence. All the terms and conditions of the licence must be met, including payment of the deposit notified before structure
is erected. Application should be made to the Highways Licensing Section.


A hoarding may affect access to gullies, manhole covers, fire hydrants, public lighting, parking meters or residents‟ parking
bays, access covers, apparatus or services belonging to statutory undertakers or to the local authority. Before your
application for a licence is considered, you must obtain permission from all parties whose services may be affected.

Permission is also required if you have to resite or remove street furniture such as light columns. Apply to Westminster
Highways Consultancy Service. If a lamp column cannot be repositioned, you may have to provide alternative lighting
fixed to the satisfaction of the Local Authority.

Hoardings must comply with the following requirements:

They must be not less than 2.44 metres in height and should be constructed of smooth, close-boarded timber. Corrugated
sheeting must not be used.

For safety reasons, the corners of the hoarding must be splayed where vehicles or pedestrians pass around them.


Hoardings must be painted in a uniform style. Members of the Considerate Builders Scheme are encouraged to paint their
hoardings in the scheme‟s colours, which are green and blue on a white background. British Standard Paint references and
design guidelines are available from the Considerate Builders Office. Murals, company logos and hoardings decorated in
other ways may require advertisement consent from the Local Authority‟s Development Division.

Hoardings must be lit from half an hour after sunset to half an hour before sunrise. Bulkhead lights should be fixed at the
top of the hoarding at each end of the structure and at 3 metre intervals in between.

Any access points in the hoarding must not open outwards over the public highway.

No advertisements may be placed on any hoardings. Special attention should be paid to any contractor‟s signs and logos
placed on hoardings to ensure that they comply with the Town and Country Planning (Control of Advertisements)
Regulations 1992.

Any fly posting or graffiti on hoardings must be removed immediately by the licence holder. It is also the licence holder‟s
responsibility to ensure that no structures associated with the works give rise to complaints, and that they are maintained to
the satisfaction of the Local Authority. You can get advice on anti-fly posting measures from the Street Patrols Service of
the Environmental Protection Group.

If a platform or handrail is needed, this must be maintained to the satisfaction of the Local Authority.

Hoardings must not obstruct access by emergency service vehicles.

Hoardings should be properly secured to resist high winds.
