What we need
The lift infrastructure across Auckland District Health Board (ADHB) sites is old and subject to an unacceptable level of failures. There is a need for a phased replacement of 47 lifts located across the Auckland City Hospital (ACH) and Greenlane Clinical Centre (GCC) sites. ADHB also want to put in place a maintenance contract for the total lift Fleet of approximately 54 lifts. ADHB is looking to engage with an innovative partner who brings expertise, reliability and quality to deliver a state of the art Solution. In return, your organisation will have an opportunity to expand their market footprint and be a part of an exciting opportunity to serve the growing population of the Auckland district.
ADHB is uniquely affected by New Zealand’s population growth, with approximately 50,000 additional people entering the region every five years. This growth together with the increasing demand of being a national, regional and tertiary services provider is already being felt with Auckland Hospital being over capacity for 63 days during 2015/16. ADHB is therefore looking for a lift Solution that will support the increased demand placed upon its services.
What We Don't Want
As the largest hospital organisation in New Zealand ADHB must maintain the highest levels of clinical service. As such, any programme to replace lifts will need to be phased carefully to minimise disruption and manage clinical risk. Therefore ADHB cannot replace all 47 lifts at one time and needs to undertake a phased approach to maintain service levels.
ADHB does not want to procure Machine-Room-Less (MRL) technology. It is of the opinion that it degrades ride quality, is difficult and costly to service, parts are often not readily available and it limits the choice of capable contractors who are able to perform maintenance.
What's Important To Us
ADHB needs credible providers who have the capacity, capability, experience and infrastructure to deliver the best whole-of-life Solution and excellent ongoing service through a maintenance contract. A good track record and technical expertise as well as a reliable product that meets international
and clinical standards is essential. As a public sector organisation ADHB must prove that it is spending public money wisely. Therefore value for money is a key criteria.
Why Should You Bid?
This is a unique opportunity to expand your footprint in the New Zealand Health sector and be part of a large scale project.
