Coursework Tasks to be Completed by Students CLIENT PROJECT BRIEF 
As part of Riverside Sunderland Masterplan, the Sunderland City Council plans to build 1,000 homes to rent and buy, with community facilities and social infrastructure for a population of 2,500. The proposed project seeks to create a unique place to live, i.e. a carbon-neutral community in a stunning landscape setting in the heart of a great industrial city. With an extensive walking and cycling network and easy access to public transport, Riverside Sunderland will encourage healthy living and reduce car dependency. Smart homes will be digitally enabled for comfort, convenience and energy efficiency. Community facilities will promote sociability and active citizenship. Following the recent entry of the insurance giant, Legal and General, into the housing market, others are keen to get involved too. In particular, Vitality Life has secured (for the purposes of this task) a collaboration with the Sunderland City Council, as the primary funder, to deliver the vision for the Riverside development project, specifically, the 1,000 homes. The first 800 homes will be delivered in four new neighbourhoods: Vaux, Farringdon Row, Ayre’s Quay and Sheepfolds. As the new community takes shape other opportunities will come forward, notably in the Heart of the City. 45% of the new homes (367 units) will be south of the river, at Vaux, Farringdon Row and Ayre’s Quay, and 55% (445) north of the river, at Sheepfolds. The majority (72%) will be houses and maisonettes including 378 3/4-bedroom family houses. The development will aim to achieve a relatively high density of around 74 homes per hectare across the MCE | Learning and Teaching Version 2.0 | Page 3 of 6 whole site, with a limit of less than one car parking pace per dwelling, due to the big push to reduce car dependency and promote active travel. Key Programme 
Features are described below:
1. standardised designs, 
2. more accurate market intelligence,
3. providing jobs, training and supply-chain opportunities for Sunderland residents and businesses, 
4. reduced costs with an ambitious 15% target, 
5. improved programme certainty,
6. reduced risk, and 
7. greater innovation and improved relationships across the supply chain. 
Key Project features are described below: 
1. Substantial cost savings, 
2. Innovative, high-quality designs and sustainable standards, 
3. Flexible use of space,
4. Tight construction programme with improved programme certainty, 
5. Collaborative working by integrated team, across Client and Contractor teams, 
6. Commitment to local economy, and 
7. Improved employment and skills outputs. 
The Council put forward its land assets in this partnership with Vitality Life who will, in turn, provide the finance for the £160 million development, with both parties sharing equally in any development profit where a development achieves a positive land value. Although planning approval for the scheme has not yet been granted, planners are confident that this will be secured. Although the Council’s inhouse estates team has technical construction expertise, they have no capacity to design and project manage a scheme of this magnitude. 
They are therefore now seeking to procure the necessary expertise to move the project forward: 
• Necessary consultants to assist in getting the project off the ground by January 2022. 
• Construction contractor(s) and such other specialists as are necessary to carry out the various elements of construction work.
• The council’s own inhouse estates team has some initial ideas which they’re keen to explore with the selected consultant designers. 
• The client is undecided on whether to award the entire project as one contract or to break it into the four natural packages, according to the four new neighbourhoods, namely: Vaux, Farringdon Row, Ayre’s Quay and Sheepfolds. 
• The client is also undecided as to what other key consultant it needs to assist in the securing the completed project in order to achieve completion by September 2023.
As the only one with procurement expertise within the Local Authority’s inhouse estates Team, you have been tasked to develop a report (refer to “Tasks to be completed by students” for further details) to guide the council in the procurement of the various works and services required on this major redevelopment project. The client is eager to use this project to improve the image of the North East as well as to attract investment to Sunderland.  
TASKS TO BE COMPLETED BY STUDENTS Based on the client project brief above, prepare a high level but comprehensive procurement report for the client, which: 
1. Provides a ‘road map’ for the Local Authority, demonstrating how you should procure each of the works and services, how the client can ensure that the scheme is completed within budget and on time, how the client and funding partners will be involved at each stage of the process, and other specific consultants and project participants you propose they MCE | Learning and Teaching Version 2.0 | Page 4 of 6 should procure and their primary roles in the process. In the submitted report, due consideration should be given to:
a) Identifying the client and stakeholder needs based on this brief and associated documentation, 
b) the most suitable procurement arrangement, bearing in mind the variety of options, 
c) the most suitable main standard form of contract to support the overall strategy, 
d) The most suitable tendering strategy for obtaining the most economically advantageous tender, 
e) the mechanism for pricing and agreeing the price for the project, 
2. Provide a critical analysis of how the Sunderland City Council and its development partners might be able to achieve their broad aim of driving efficiencies through the supply chain and thereby save 15% of total construction and design costs. 

Coursework Overview  Context Statement: The inter-related Architectural, Enginee

Coursework Overview  Context Statement: The inter-related Architectural, Engineering, Construction and Facilities Management (AEC-FM) industries face many challenges around construction project delivery (e.g. poor information  management practices; low levels of collaboration, productivity, predictability and profitability; lack of trust;  poor payment practices, etc.). The application of Building Information Modelling (BIM) concepts, tools and  workflows could potentially address many of these.  Throughout the Module there are discussions on aspects of contemporary practice around Building  Information Modelling (BIM). In order to further equip you with topic specific knowledge and  understanding, around this, and construction project management practice itself, and to help you develop  your intellectual skills and abilities in the subject, the following coursework task is set.  It requires the submission of an individual, written case study report whereby you are to self-select a BIMenabled Project Case Study, for the purposes of analysis and reflection around the management, theory  and practice of BIM. The ‘unit of analysis’ in this case study report ultimately, remains construction project  delivery, and how it could be improved through the use of BIM.  Analysis: This written submission should fully introduce the ‘case’, provide a project description and  position it within an Architectural Engineering and Construction (AEC) context. It should also identify key  project challenges, evaluate any BIM-enabled solutions, and articulate any BIM-related ‘lessons learned’  that can inform and be generalized to future practice.  Reflection: Through theoretical, and evidence-based perspectives, reflect also upon the key elements of  BIM-enabled project delivery practice that you perceive have been applied on the selected project case.  Discuss this by making using of current and salient academic (and relevant professional) literature from  the subjects knowledge-base.  Therefore, the project case study acts a ‘contextual vehicle’ you then use to evidence your independent  research and learning around Building Information Modelling Management, Theory and Practice.  Component 1 is worth 100% of the module. It will be submitted and assessed electronically, and it  addresses all Module Learning Outcomes.  3.3 Coursework Tasks to be Completed by Students  Select a suitable BIM-enabled case study project that is ripe for analysis. This could be a prominent,  widely available BIM-enabled case, where useful materials are readily and publicly available, or one that  the student is currently, or has previously worked on. Such a project should only be one that you have  normal access to information. If such a project is a ‘building’ or ‘live site’, then this should only be one that  you have the ‘normal’, and ‘necessary’ permissions to access externally and/or internally (i.e. you are not  to engage in any trespass of any building/site that you do not have normal permission to enter). Also note  that you should not ‘cold-contact’ professionals to attempt to arrange access to any project that you do  not have normal access to.  If you need a discussion to advise if the proposed BIM-enabled project is suitable for the purposes of  case study analysis, then arrange to have this discussion with one of the module tutors by teaching week  6.  MCE | Learning and Teaching Version 2.1 | Page 3 of 4 In addition to the case study analysis, you should throughout the module, be equipping yourself on other  related aspects of contemporary Construction Project Management practice. To do this and develop your  topic specific knowledge and understanding, and help you develop your intellectual skills and abilities in  this subject, you are to engage with the academic and professional literature around the art, science, and  discipline of Construction Project Management.  Therefore, in addition to describing the BIM-enabled case study project itself, your coursework  submission is expected primarily draw upon, and refer to, the body of academic work in this area.  You should evidence this engagement via appropriate and quality in-text referencing, that is cited  correctly throughout. It is also reasonable to expect that some elements in your review will also be  informed by discussions held in the module or from any credible BIM-related websites (for example,  www.bimacademy.ac.uk, www.thenbs.com, https://www.cdbb.cam.ac.uk/) as these are useful in  highlighting current issues and offering additional supporting information.  Again, the work is to be properly structured and supported through ‘academic’ research using appropriate  and quality references which are cited correctly throughout. A separate, properly formatted references list  must also be provided in the submission at the end of the document.  3.4 Expected Size of Submission   This written work should be formatted using ‘Arial’ font, of font size ‘11’, with 1.5 line spacing.   The upper maximum limit for this work is 4,000 words. This word count includes:   Any abstract (if provided).   The main body of text.   In text citations [e.g. (Smith, 2011)].   Direct quotations from primary or secondary source material.   Title & Contents page.   Words within tables, figures, and illustrations.   Reference list.   Bibliography (if also provided).   Appendices.   Glossary.   Footnotes.   Figures (diagrams, illustrations, photographs etc.) and tables are welcome to support the text, but  must be fully incorporated into the submission, integrated and following the text that fully explains  why they are exhibited. 200 words will be counted for each separate figure/table used.   The work must form a structured and coherent whole. No contents page or superfluous front  matter is required. Only a basic front sheet for the submission is to be provided, that identifies the  student number (not name), the total number of words used (excluding references section), and  the number of figures/tables used.   ‘Footnotes’/’Endnotes’ will be permitted, as they can offer sufficient value, providing, their use is  minimal, sufficiently concise, and appropriate – they offer only ‘clarifying’ information, or add  ‘adjacent’ value to the sentences already written. In other words, they are not to be used to ‘hide’  words that would otherwise normally be expected to be contained within the main body of the  text, and their use will be considered in accordance with the University policy regarding word  limits.
