DESCRIPTION OF REQUIREMENTS 

United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (ECA) located in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia is seeking for Expressions of Interest (EOIs) from qualified companies with the required expertise and experience for Artwork Conservation and restoration of the Africa Hall project. The UNECA Africa Hall Artwork Conservation and restoration project is for the protection, conservation and restoration works to existing artworks within Africa Hall. The work is to be undertaken concurrent with and as an auxiliary contract to the Main Africa Hall Renovation Project.  

The artworks are of a varied nature / medium, such as stainglass, wall paintings, carpet and both fixed and able to be removed. The conservators will therefore be required to undertake partial works onsite in Addis Ababa. The artworks are considered of high cultural significance.

The conservation works must be undertaken over an extended period, to allow for preconstruction (protection) and post-construction conservation/restoration. Accordingly, the artwork conservation shall be carried out in two stages, the first of which shall start just after the early/decanting works and before starting of the main refurbishment works of the Africa Hall project (planned early 2018) and the second once the main works have been almost completed (planned late 2020).

The Artwork Conservation scope of works will be divided into seven (7) areas and two (2) lots:

Lot A

i. Artwork 1 – Afew Erk Tekle Stained Glass

ii. Artwork 2 – Brunetto Buracchini Stained Glass

Lot B

iii. Artwork 3 – Leather Skin

iv. Artwork 4 – Floral Mural

v. Artwork 5 – African Leader’s Portraits

vi. Artwork 6 – Freedom in Unity

vii. Artwork 7 – Ethiopian Rug

Interested companies are therefore required to submit their EoI for all or one of the Lots. The completed Vendor Response Form should be submitted to the above-mentioned email address or fax number on or before 25 May 2017.

UNECA is precluded from entering into a contract with a firm that is not fully registered with United Nations Global Market Place (UNGM). Only those vendors who are registered or provisionally registered or have started their registration process in UNGM will be eligible to receive the solicitation document - RFP. (UNGM web site:- https://www.ungm.org).

Those interested should write to the above-mentioned e-mail address to submit their “Expression of Interest” by the deadline of  25 May 2017.

Vendors interested in participating in the planned solicitation process should complete the Vendor Response Form (http://www.un.org/depts/ptd/pdf/eoi13742.pdf ) of this EOI and fax it or email it to UNECA before the closing date set forth above.
