The consultancy was appointed to the £39 000 project following a tender process, and has been tasked with improving signage across the Parliamentary Estate.

Haley Sharpe has been briefed to create a signage strategy across an estate of 16 building complexes and spaces. Many of these, such as the Palace of Westminster, are listed.

After developing a signage manual for the site, Haley Sharpe will then be tasked to improve signage across the estate, both for visitors and also around the perimeter of the estate.

The House of Commons commissioning team says a final working draft of the signage manual will be required after 20 weeks, and the project is set to be completed after 31 weeks.
