VIII. Competition Rules (including schedule)
The Project proceeds in three stages: Stage I – Pre-qualification, Stage II – Urban Design Scheme Competition, and Stage III – Results Development.
Stage I – Pre-qualification
The pre-qualification will adopt the method of “invitation + public application” where the Host will invite alternative entities and shortlist 5 therefrom, and at the same time, it will release an announcement worldwide to publicly solicit creativity from professional design agencies and then shortlist 10 from the applying entities through pre-qualification to enter Stage II – Urban Design Scheme Competition together with the 5 invited entities.
Stage II – Urban Design Scheme Competition
The Host will organize the 15 shortlisted design agencies (consortia) to conduct site survey and Q&A. The Host will provide detailed basic design data after the Letter of Participation Confirmation and Non-Disclosure Agreement are signed. The 15 design agencies (consortia) will receive the corresponding competition bonus after they submit deliverables that meet related requirements. Review experts will select 3 (without ranking) winning schemes from the 15 design schemes and recommend them to the Host.
Stage III – Results Development
The Host will study and determine the rankings of the winners on the basis of fully respecting the experts’ review opinions. The design agency (consortium) ranking first will conduct the results development as the technical consultant of the Project and subsequently organize 3-4 results development workshops (the specific number subject to the realities of the Project), and the second-prize winners shall send their project leaders and main designers to participate in the workshops.
If the design agency (consortium) ranking first is not qualified to be ranked first or fail to continue to participate in the subsequent work due to its reasons (for example, it gives up the qualification to be ranked first, cannot perform the contract not due to force majeure or is found to have illegal acts that have affected the ranking results), the Host may communicate with other winners to separately determine the entity to participate in the subsequent work.
