The Corporate Officer of the House of Lords and Corporate Officer of the House of Commons, acting jointly, require a Contractor to undertake the Work involving the overhaul and refurbishment, including structural repair, of the Cast Iron Roofs at the Palace of Westminster.
This will require the refurbishment and repair of damaged elements of the roof structure and components, and the application of an anti-corrosion treatment. It will be necessary to remove the tiles and other external components and repair and treat them in factory conditions away from site. Following remedial works, they will be returned and reinstated. Upon the removal and inspection of the roof tiles, it is anticipated that a percentage of these tiles will be beyond economic repair or overhaul, and that new cast iron tiles will be required. This will be required to be manufactured at on offsite Foundry facility inclusive of the production of the necessary patterns. For information, approximately 40 % of the tiles on the Phase 1 project were replaced with new castings. Scaffolding will be an important part of the works and must provide a weather tight and secure temporary roof. Full protection will also be required internally within the roof space.
Phase 1 of the cast iron roofs was completed as a result of an earlier procurement.
Phase 2 consists of four (4) Projects (roof areas) to be repaired over a period of approximately 10 years with an estimated value of 60 000 000 GBP including works, services and consultancies. The Employer has obtained Full Business Case approval for Phase 2, Project 1 with a value of approximately 14.6m GBP including works, services and consultancies.
