About This Project

In conjunction with Malcolm Reading Consultants, we were the Project Manager’s for the pre-construction phase for the major refurbishment and extension of this grade 1 listed, building.

The project has delivered new exhibition space, world class archive storage for the museum’s 3 million item collection, a restaurant, café and landscaped public realm.

The Role

An early task was to introduce control of the moving project aspirations. Working closely with the Internal Project Manager, the Project Brief was developed and approved by all of the internal stakeholders; a rigorous control procedure was then introduced.

Significant challenges on this project included the need to confer with and satisfy multiple high profile stakeholders including the private benefactor, English Heritage, the Heritage Lottery Fund, adjoining landowners and various other national and local government organisations.
