Restoration & Renewal Delivery Authority

The Palace of Westminster, home of the Houses of Parliament, is one of our most treasured buildings. Recognised the world over, it’s the symbolic heart of our democracy and nation and a workplace for thousands of people. The building has played a unique role in our political history for 900 years and now it needs urgent repair.

The Houses of Parliament Restoration and Renewal Programme has been set up to tackle all the work to protect the Palace’s heritage and ensure it can continue to serve as the home of the UK Parliament for future generations.

The Palace is part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site, a Grade 1 listed building and is regarded as the world’s finest example of early Gothic Revival architecture. Our project will be the biggest and most complex restoration ever undertaken in the UK.

The Delivery Authority will procure and manage the contractors and supply chain and it will engage a team of architects, engineers, project managers and heritage experts.

We’re building talented and diverse teams to join us in this hugely collaborative endeavour.

We’re also committed to creating a work environment that embraces the strength in our differences and to creating a sense of belonging for everyone. Accessibility and inclusion is embedded in everything we do.

Equality, Diversity & Inclusion

Values ifographic


The Sponsor Body and Delivery Authority are committed to creating a work environment that embraces the strength in our differences and to creating a sense of belonging for everyone.


Our Approach

We are creating a programme where individual contribution is valued, ideas are openly shared, and work is a place where our teams look forward to coming to in order to produce the best outcomes for our programme and for our stakeholders.

Accessibility and Inclusion is a strategic theme for our programme and we work hard to embed this in everything that we do. We believe that innovation, good health and safety practice and our ambition of achieving value for money will happen when you have a diverse team of people who each contribute their different ways of thinking. We also know that people are at their most productive and empowered when they feel included.

To support our Equality, Diversity and Inclusion strategy, we employ talented people from a range of different backgrounds who will join us based on their talents and experiences and work in a way that brings our programme values to life.

To complete this programme to the highest quality, whilst ensuring the well-being of every Member, Peer, staff member, contractor and the visiting public, we must treat everyone with dignity and respect and create a culture where challenges can be identified early and resolved, and that opportunities to improve our environment are maximised.


We are proud to partner with the following organisations:

  • Business in the Community - Race Charter
  • Armed Forces Covenant 
  • Disabilty Confident
  • Mind
