We work extensively in this sector and our appointments have included design, diagnostic and commissioning. Over the years our clients have included:
The National Gallery
In addition to several miscellaneous projects we have undertaken detailed design work for Gallery 29 restoration, galleries 46-49 remodelling, the North Galleries remodelling and the East Wing remodelling and restoration. We were also involved in resolving the technical/contractual deadlock on the East Wing project which was threatening the planned opening date. The work involved searching technical analysis, diplomacy and sustained technical direction to reach a successful working outcome on time. Today, we continue to support The National Gallery in preserving the nation’s works of art.

Various Projects and Feasibility Studies including modifications to central refrigeration plant to overcome historical performance difficulties, adaptation of existing gallery air conditioning to suit new permanent and temporary exhibitions (Women & War, Great Escapes, Children’s War), Feasibility Study into the reorganisation of the Victorian SE Block (Paper Document Archives) and Feasibility Study into the renewal of air conditioning to photographic archive.
Dulwich Picture Gallery
Following successful appointment to retrieve satisfactory performance from the existing air conditioning plant we were appointed to undertake full design duties for the mechanical and electrical services associated with the major refurbishment and expansion of the Gallery.
We have been engaged by the British Museum to review and determine strategies to overcome problems in their Japanese Gallery. We have also been responsible for the engineering services design in the Museum’s Research Laboratory building.
Mary Rose Trust
We were appointed by the Mary Rose Trust to oversee the commissioning effort being undertaken by the main contractor. The reclamation process of the Mary Rose required considerable expertise in the process leading to strictly controlled environments.
