Measurement Experts Awarded Parliamentary Estates Contract

[Harpenden, Herts – 9th June, 2016] – Plowman Craven has been awarded a five-year framework to provide surveying services for the Parliamentary Estate as part of the ongoing Restoration and Renewal Programme for the Palace of Westminster.

The commission from the Parliamentary Estates Directorate involves a laser scan survey to capture measurement data of the entire Palace, including the iconic Houses of Parliament, home of the UK Parliament.

Plowman Craven will then produce a Building Information Management (BIM) model which will be the platform for the Restoration and Renewal Programme. This 3D model will help to facilitate the subsequent planning, design and construction work, as well as the future management of the Palace.

Commenting on the award, Malcolm Donald, Director at Plowman Craven, said: “We are honoured to have received such a prestigious contract and look forward to contributing our specialist expertise and BIM capability to this vital project to preserve and protect a UNESCO World Heritage Site of national and global significance.”

Plowman Craven has more than 50 years’ industry experience, using innovative solutions to provide measurement consultancy services that have contributed to many of the UK’s high-profile redevelopment, infrastructure, heritage and Estates projects.
