Stage 2 - Request for proposal (with a site)
Criteria 1: Demonstration Housing concept
Paying particular regard to and referencing the Legislative Assembly’s Project Objectives listed below, outline why your Proposal is Demonstration Housing. The key question that needs to be addressed is ‘Is this product delivered elsewhere in the Territory? Does it meet a demand? What is innovative about the concept in relation to:
- Excellence in design quality ***
- Carbon neutral buildings ***
- Medium density infill **
- Innovative planning and engagement approaches **
- Innovative housing products and typologies ***
- Close partnership with industry bodies *
- Options for public and Affordable Housing **
Please note the weighting (indicated by stars) of these objectives has been determined by the Collaboration Hub and reflects the community’s relative value of each of these objectives. They will be weighted accordingly in the assessment.
Criteria 2: Excellence in design quality
Demonstration Housing Projects are required to achieve excellence in design and as such the Proposal will be assessed for design quality. Preliminary Sketch Plans (PSPs) of the proposed development are to be provided.
- Context and neighbourhood character
- Built form and scale
- Housing diversity and social interaction
In addition, the Collaboration Hub has specified:
- Protection of the Garden City – Proposals are to ensure the retention and replacement of trees and other vegetation to mitigate against heat island effect. Driveways and other hard stand areas should be minimised as much as possible; and
- Universal Design – Incorporate Universal Design principles where possible.
In responding, Proponents should address how their Proposals address the “Protection of the Garden City” principles and universal design principles.
Criteria 3: Excellence in build quality
The Proponent must detail how they intend to ensure the build quality of all of the works undertaken for the Project.
These details may include but are not limited to matters such as:
- systems of work;
- skills and training of personnel and subcontractors;
- quality accreditation;
- continuity of consultants through design and documentation;
- use of “hold points”;
- post construction tests and performance testing;
- approach to identification and rectification of defects during and following construction;
- the length of proposed defect liability periods; and
- organisational and contractual arrangements that support the ability for purchasers / residents to enforce a Proponent’s obligations regarding building quality and rectification of defects.
