The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) undertakes construction and renovation projects throughout Somalia, including in hospitals and prisons. Some of the work comprises electrical renovation or installation, for which technical designs and related services are required.

Services Required

The ICRC wishes to identify reputable companies that can provide high quality services as follows:

  • Create electrical designs/schematics for entire buildings or premises (for new or existing systems), and provide such designs in AutoCAD format. Designs should comply with the following standards:
  • BS 7671: 2008 Requirements for Electrical Installations (17th Edition of the IEE Wiring Regulations)

  • BS EN 60439-1 Type Tested Assemblies
  • Provide associated Bills of Quantities for such designs, with cost estimates;
  • Calculate power loads/requirements for such systems, with recommendations on appropriate power sources (generators, solar, etc.), and their ratings;
  • Ensure all designs take into account the environment in which they will be used, with a strong emphasis on safety, durability, and ease of maintenance.

Selected suppliers would be integrated into the ICRC pool of suppliers and invited to tender for relevant projects. A contract would then be signed with the successful supplier for each call for tender.
