Imperial War Museum Art Storage FacilityPrint Case Study

 

Description:

Value: £820,000
Duration: 24 weeks
Quantity Surveyor: Gardiner Theobald
Architect: BDP


The Grade II Listed Imperial War Museum London, is dedicated to the coverage of conflicts, especially those involving Britain and the Commonwealth, from the First World War to the present day.

This project involved the alteration and adaptation of an existing space within the museum to create an arts storage facility. We carried out the initial strip-out of the space subsequently installing the specialist storage equipment. The equipment allows art not on display to the public to be securely stored in accessible racks protecting them from the elements. The storage equipment is light, humidity and temperature controlled to ensure the protection of the art within.

Similarly to all of our museum work, this project was carried out whilst the museum remained open and operational.

Following the refurbishment of the storage facility, we secured two further projects at The Imperial War Museum. The first involved the redecoration and refurbishment of the basement male and female changing rooms and the second the redecoration and refurbishment of the second floor offices.
