The Tendering Process serves as a liable base for checking prices and awarding of contracts to the appropriate contractors.Tender documents define the scope [quality, masses, terms of execution] of all trades necessary to build the hospital based on Implementation Planning. The description of scope need to be completed at this stage as endorsement is usually very expensive. Thus, there must be a complete Implementation Planning prior to Tendering.
The Functional Plan will contain a departmental room list, based on the hospital’s clinical needs, which will become the basis of the architectural design brief. The functional plan will describe the room by name, function, size, relative location and major equipment and services. The functional plan is not to be limited to a traditional room and space programme.
The Masterplan will determine the size, function, placement and properties of the buildings that will make up as it is envisaged to be at the end of the reconstruction phase. Planning will involve the input of several disciplines in the master planning process. The process will include the gathering and analysis of data, studies to identify the quality and quantity of necessary hospital services, the development of options for a staged redevelopment of the infrastructure and an approval process to validate the results in an agreed Strategic Plan.
