Project description

Albania’s cultural and natural heritage is playing an important role in the social and economic development of the country. In particular, museums, archaeological parks, historic cities and other cultural sites as well as natural landscapes are well-poised to be leveraged for sustainable tourism development but these resources need to be further enhanced and preserved in order to fully realize their potential.

Against this backdrop, the Project for Integrated Urban and Tourism Development (PIUTD), funded by the World Bank, supports the Government of Albania to develop the economy and improve living conditions in its southern region by financing infrastructure projects in the urban centres, among others, of Berat (on the UNESCO list of protected areas) and Përmet.
The purpose of this assignment is to develop integrated urban design concepts in the two cities, based on a clear and shared development vision, identifying an investment program, developing preliminary and detailed designs and bidding documents for the implementation of select priority projects and delivering works supervision services.

The total expected cost of investment projects is around 20 million USD (15M USD for Berat and 5M USD for Përmet).

Scope of services

Preparation of a vision statement and of an urban design concept leading to a list of investment projects; preliminary and detailed design and bidding documents of a selection of identified investment projects; works supervision.
