Miscellaneous repair and maintenance services. Restoration work. Upholstering services. The House of Lords Chamber benches are a prominent feature of the Grade 1 listed interior of the Chamber but have not been subject to a programme of restoration since the 1950’s. The purpose of this project is to carry out the necessary restoration and conservation work required to fully restore the benches. This includes full structural work on the car cases, re-upholstery work as necessary, replacement of the leather, broadcloth, fringing and bun head nails to ensure there will be a uniform look throughout the Chamber.
Although some of the work is fairly urgent, it is important to phase it over a realistic period to allow it to be undertaken to an appropriate standard and to maintain full capacity in the Chamber at all times. The work will need to occur around fixed dates such as State Opening of Parliament so minimising the impact on the operation of the Chamber. It is envisaged that the project will be phased over five financial years, but there may be opportunities of reducing this timescale. The project will be split between two separate contracts, one for the specialist conservation and restoration services and another for the high quality, heritage standard supplies required to complete the project.
