General Terms

for all Snow and Ice leisure experiences

The Outline Plan of Work organises the process of managing, and designing building projects and administering building contracts into a number of key Work Stages. The sequence or content of Work Stages may vary or they may overlap to suit the procurement method.

(A+B) Appraisal & design brief 

Identification needs * objectives and constraints * Assessment of feasibility studies and development options * Design brief & initial statement of requirements * Identification procurement method, organisational structure, range of consultancy and phased offer * Preliminary feasibility calculation based on questionnaire including general description and preliminary layout.

(C) Concept design 

Site / building survey * Preliminary general story book and selection of attractions and facilities * Story and description of guest experience per attraction * Briefing for artist impressions and relevant designers * Preliminary architectural concept design & concept integration of services and layout plans * Preliminary 3D artist impressions * C&S (civil & structure): Preliminary sketches of structural design & physical requirements * MEP (mechanical, electrical & public health): Preliminary sketches of building services systems and climate conditions * Environmental analysis / sustainability * Preliminary snow & ice production calculations and power & water supply requirements * Preliminary local cost plan * General feasibility including extensive parameters, preliminary operations forecast, investment estimate and IRR calculation * BREEAM (environmental assessment method) * Project management.

(D) Design development 

Development of concept design to include structural and building services systems & planning application submission if appropriate * Design development of technical installations for costing purposes (pre-engineering of climate, snow, ice, water and energy systems) and budget * Sourcing of attractions and equipment * Setting out of rides & attractions and design development * Light & A/V plan and descriptions for costing * Revised cost plan & survey of quantities * C&S report & sketches to include loads, variations, options for costing & production final scheme * MEP report & sketches to include basic system descriptions & specifications: mechanical, ventilation, air distribution, electrical assessments, cabling, water discharge * Acoustics * Construction development management – health & safety * Fire Strategy * Preliminary theming design, logo and character design and special effects * Project management.

(E) Technical design 

Building: Detailed architectural drawings, material and finishes list & building regulations submission, if appropriate * Rides: Detail design and material & finishes list * Facilities: Reception, rental, F&B and circulation areas interior design, detail design and material & finishes list * Engineering of technical installations, working drawings, details, materials, machine room layout and final budget * Light & A/V plan, layout & schematic cable layouts * Revised cost plan & survey of quantities * C&S work packages: detail design, key details, spatial coordination * MEP work packages: spatially coordinated schematic layouts with key details and invert positions

<br />

Environmental analysis / sustainability * Envelope * Acoustics * Construction development management – health & safety * Fire strategy * BREEAM * Detailed theming design facilities and snow & ice area and special effects * Final artist impressions, animations and model * Merchandising design * Project management.

(F) Tender information 

Information required for tender action: Architectural drawings, schedules, specification of materials and workmanship * MEP & C+S schedules, specifications * Final cost plan & survey of quantities * Materials list * Final investment estimate * Project management.

(G+H) Tender documentation & action

Preparation of Tender documentation * Identification of potential contactors or specialist subcontractors * Appraising tenders and recommendations to client.

(J+K) Implementation 

Building implementation to practical completion * Administration of building contract * Issuing of information to contractor * Reviewing information provided by contractor and specialists * Interior and rides & attractions implementation to practical completion * Contract and cost control * Engineering structural * Engineering MEP * Building regulations * Shop drawings * Local construction * Handling, manufacturing, transport, installation and supervision of machine room and other technical installations, theming & furnishing incl. light, AV and  special effects, rides & attractions, general systems and equipment, merchandising and rental hardware * Show control, testing & programming * Descriptions & procedures start-up * Certifications * On-site project management.

(L) Post practical completion 

Administrating contract after practical completion and final inspections * Assisting operator during initial occupation period * Review of project performance during use * BREEAM – EPC (energy performance certificate) * Maintenance & operational manuals * Expat staff sourcing * Training technical installations * Training operations.

Possible franchise agreement (if relevant) between Arctic World and the client on basis of 5% of the yearly turnover, including all benefits, rights and duties.
