A contract notice and pre-qualification questionnaire have been issued for the restoration and renewal of the Palace of Westminster.
The palace is a key feature of the Westminster UNESCO World Heritage Site and home to the House of Commons and the House of Lords.
The successful bidder will be tasked with examining the costs, benefits, risks and general feasibility of three possible approaches to the restoration and renewal of the Palace, which are:
- Continuing repairs and replacement of the fabric and systems in the Palace over an indefinite period
- A defined, rolling programme of more substantial interventions, but still working around continued use of the Palace
- Scheduling the works over a more concentrated period with parliamentary activities moved elsewhere and unfettered access to the Palace for the delivery of the works
Responses are required by 12.00pm on 14 June, bidders can view the Contract Notice online.
