Civil & Structural Engineering including site surveying, drainage design, permafrost engineering and cold climate engineering; 3. Building Services Design; 4. Quantity Surveying; This team will create a design that ensures a safe, healthy and functional base for the next forty years. Please Note that each service is being procured independently. You can submit a Proposal for one or more of the four services listed above, however these must be separate proposals in their own service discipline. Suppliers can note preferred partnerships in their proposal e.g. Structural & civil partnering with Architectural.
