Local company helps appoint contractors for Westminster renovation


Jersey-based HLG Associates have been working with the Palace of Westminster to appoint contractors to undertake a large programme of renovation and restoration.

The Palace of Westminster is due to go through a six-year-long, multi-billion-pound programme of renovation and restoration.

Constructed over 150 years ago, the palace requires a massive overhaul to make it fit for 21st century use - and beyond. Crumbling stonework, rusting roofs, cracking services and miles upon miles of creaking cabling systems, all need replacing or repair, while protecting the building’s historic fabric and character.

HLG Associates were brought in to help with the selection and appointment of companies that would plan the renovation programme, explained Simon Matthews, Director. 

“The challenge faced by the Palace was not just choosing the right ones, but also ensuring a selection process that was independent and fully transparent. HLG were clearly impartial – no vested interest in the programme - and too small to undertake any of the renovation work ourselves - so nothing to gain from the final contracts. Yet we possess the expertise and capabilities needed to ensure the right selection was made.”
