Investigation of tender documents regarding the use of wooden frames with focus on public procurement (English)
In the mid 1990s a previous prohibitions against multi-story buildings higher than two floors with a wooden frame was changed. Today multi-storey buildings are being built in Skellefteå, Sundsvall, Växjö, and Stockholm with others. Despite this only one of five houses being built today has a wooden frame.
Since the municipality is a key force to get projects with wooden frames, this papers purpose is to improve tender document for the opportunity to submit bids and building with wooden frames. To help us forward with our work three questions were formulated.
1) What is the basis from a wooden constructions company perspective, of which they determines if they can place a bid or not?
2) What is the difference between tender documents made by a municipality compared to a private buyer?
3) How can tender documents be improved to create an opportunity to place a bid containing an alternative frame system?
To answer these questions a literature study was carried out. The literature study is the basis of this paper. To obtain empirical data a document analysis of tender documents was carried out.
The result of the study shows that wood frames are hard to adapt to an already finished technical specification, or to a tender document containing an extensive technical specification.
To obtain alternative solutions, the buyer should focus on object design, form and function, or a general technical specification. Instead the technical specifications should be drawn up by the supplier, or in collaboration with them.
The tender evaluation should be made by the most economically advantageous rather then the lowest price. Then the buyer can evaluate the offers against each other, rather then choosing the lowest price. This also gives the possibility for suppliers to make a bid containing an alternative solution.
As a continuation of this paper, we recommend a study on which impact a general technical specification has on the project final cost. Furthermore a study exploring which possibilities partner procurement can have alternative solutions in the Swedish procurement act.
This report deal exclusively with how tender documents should be formulated. Life cycle analysis, carbon dioxide emissions and strength calculations will not be executed.
