The Capital City project was a 5-year long programme of refurbishment and extension, undertaken in collaboration with a specialist in-house team, to create The Galleries of Modern London.
We were appointed to carry out full mechanical, electrical, public health and lift designs for the duration of the project, with site supervision duties throughout. Our designs enabled the integration with the Museum’s existing building services as well as the shared heating and cooling plant for the Corporation of London’s adjacent building. All gallery spaces were air conditioned to international gallery standards.
The programme saw the addition of two major new facilities to the Museum: The City Gallery and the Clore Learning Centre. The City Gallery, which features a ‘shop window’ at street level, provides a showcase for some of the Museum’s best-loved objects, including the Lord Mayor’s Coach. The Learning Centre comprises classrooms, a theatre and education spaces.
