Restoration of the Palace of Westminster

Access to new resource related to major projects added to PMWL

13 March 2021 – Dallas, London, Sydney – Access to a new resource has been added to the PM World Library (PMWL) related to the management of major projects.  The resource is the website associated with the restoration and renewal of The Palace of Westminster, home of the Houses of Parliament in the United Kingdom.

The Palace of Westminster is an icon of Great Britain’s past, present and future. It is the home of the UK’s democracy and a workplace for thousands of people. The building has played a unique role in the country’s political history for 900 years and now it needs urgent repair. The restoration and renewal of the Palace is the biggest and most complex renovation of a heritage building ever undertaken in the UK. The plan is to transform the Palace of Westminster, home of the Houses of Parliament, to be fit for the future as the working home for Britain’s democracy. It will be welcoming to all and a celebration of a rich heritage. Everyone must move out of the Palace so the biggest heritage restoration ever undertaken in the UK can begin. The first essential step was therefore to create temporary homes for the Commons and Lords.

Current best-case estimates, with full decant of the palace by those currently working there, are approximately 8-10 years and £4 billion to completion.
