Total Quantity or Scope

The House of Commons In House Services and Estates Department has embarked on a large-scale programme for the development of the buildings on its Northern Estate. Norman Shaw North, Norman Shaw South, 1 Derby Gate and 1 Parliament Street all require refurbishment (formerly known as the Northern Estate Programme). This is due largely to the age and fragility of the buildings' mechanical and electrical services, poor environmental performance and fire safety shortcomings. Additionally, these buildings are all listed Grade 1 or Grade 2* and several are of special historical significance. The Northern Estate holds space equivalent to approximately 30,000m squared NIA, of which, around 15,300m squared requires refurbishment. This modification will enable the continuation of architectural & design service provision to 2025 which will see the completion of Norman Shaw North as was originally intended. The anticipated modification increase equates to GBP 5 000 000. The original contract value was GBP 25 000 000. The Contracting Authority shall observe a period of no less than 10 days, beginning with the day after the date of publication, before modifying the contract as set out in this notice. If the 10-day period (Reg. 99(3)(c)) ends on a non-working day, the period will be extended to end at the end of the next working day (Reg. 2(4)).
