About Us

The Restoration and Renewal Programme governance was set up under the Parliamentary Buildings (Restoration and Renewal) Act 2019. 

In July 2022, the Commissions of both Houses of Parliament agreed a new approach to the works, giving them joint oversight of the Programme. This has seen the establishment of the Client Team, a joint department of the two Houses to replace the sponsorship function. The Delivery Authority remains responsible for designing and delivering the restoration work.

The Commissions agreed that the programme of works should initially focus on the following priority areas:

  • Fire safety and protection.
  • Replacement of mechanical, electrical, drainage and plumbing, and data and communications system
  • Asbestos management and wider health and safety issues.
  • Conservation of the building fabric including stonework.
