The Restoration & Renewal programme has a requirement for building control Approved Inspector services to support the Palace of Westminster design development. The Houses of Parliament are home to one of the busiest and most historic parliamentary institutions in the world. They are an enduring symbol of our national identity, and is one of the top five most recognisable buildings in the world. However, it is deteriorating faster than it can be repaired and the longer this essential work is left the greater the risk of a sudden catastrophic failure. In 2018 Parliament decided to create independent bodies to manage the Restoration and Renewal Programme, a Sponsor Body to set the scope, budget and timescale, and a Delivery Authority to carry out the work, and procure and manage the contractors and supply chain. Both will work together to provide a fit, modern working home for our parliamentary democracy and deliver value for money to the taxpayer. The Delivery Authority is seeking to procure an Approved Inspector to support the Concept Design development for the Grade 1 listed Place of Westminster. The services are to include the activities outlined below with a view to ensuring any proposed designs are successful in future planning applications without significant rework: • Assess plans against the requirements of the Building Regulations 2010 and issue a compliance report • Provide full records of design assessment for future reference and continuity of control • Assess amendments throughout the scheme and provide written feedback on compliance matters • Attend relevant design meetings, currently held remotely • Provide ad hoc telephone and email advice when required.
