Abstract

The Palace of Westminster refurbishment is projected to cost £4bn while the temporary House of Commons Chamber building roughly £400m as part of the £1.6bn masterplan. But given a changed political context, since Barry's original design over 165 years ago, the drivers for political reform within the UK and the risk to government resilience of continuation on a flood plain prone to climate change induced inundation, is this sufficiently sustainable best value procurement or is there a lack of foresight?
