16th Sept 2020: Tata group wins bid for Indian Parliament rebuild
The Tata group has won the contract to build a new Parliament complex in New Delhi, India. Last October, HCP Design won the design bid for the project to update the site, which needs reorganisation to meet current needs.
The existing Parliament House and other buildings of the Central Secretariat in were planned by Edwin Lutyens and Herbert Baker, who designed the Central Vista which houses the president’s residence Rashtrapati Bhawan, Parliament House, North and South Block and India Gate. These iconic buildings were constructed between 1911-1931, the year in which the new capital was inaugurated, which has resulted in a shortage of office space and a lack of chambers for Members of Parliament that would be expected in a modern facility.
Construction is expected to begin in December.
