English Heritage, which manages the building, is seeking a design team to update interpretation across the site in a contract worth £120 000.

The work will involve opening up and interpreting new areas of the palace, including the basement and map room, as well as working on interpretation throughout the building.

English Heritage says, ‘It is envisaged that this will include light-touch, integrated graphics and handling objects throughout the palace and graphic panels and bats in the garden.’

A family activity zone is proposed for the kitchen, and an interactive map for the map room. An introductory film and multimedia guide will be commissioned separately.

The contract is scheduled to run from June 2014 to April 2015.

The deadline for receipt of tenders or requests to participate is 19 May. For more information visit ted.europa.eu.
