Westminster restoration call for consultancy services

Government has published tender documents for client advisory services for the Palace of Westminster restoration and renewal programme, which include a major geotechnical component.

Ground investigation, geophysical surveys, geotechnical design, including foundation assessment, form a major part of the overall contract for consultancy services.

According to the documents published in the Official Journal of the European Union, the exact scope, size, duration, phasing and delivery model for the services has yet to be defined; however various delivery models and outcome level scenarios are currently under consideration by parliament.

The tender states: “A decision in principle on how the programme will be delivered is expected to be made by members of both houses in spring 2016; meanwhile parliament is proceeding to procure management and design services now so that the necessary consultants are in place and ready to progress the programme. The appointed consultants will therefore need to be capable of delivering any one, or a blend, of the scenarios under consideration.”
