At approximately 260,000m2 the Parliamentary Estate covers a significant area of Westminster and is much larger than the Palace itself. The Estate houses approximately 5,800 employees with differing workstyles and furniture requirements; in addition the Estate has thousands of visitors each year from tourists and school parties to those on Parliamentary business and international delegates. Much of the furniture on the Estate has been in continuous use for more than twenty or thirty years, and is beyond economic repair or reuse. As part of a general programme of building upgrade works (mechanical, electrical and security) furniture is being replaced where appropriate and necessary to improve space usage and building efficiency. By upgrading furniture to modern standards the Authority wishes to create an inclusive environment that is welcoming to all. The estimated value range of the Framework is between £4.7 million and £11.5million. The total cost will depend on the number of buildings on the Parliamentary Estate refurbished during the Framework period. Several buildings have been identified for building upgrade works and other refurbishment projects are dependent on programmed projects being completed.
