Duration: 8 months design to construction
Some of the existing Science Museum Group public facilities did not reflect their commitment to be inclusive and accessible for all visitors – many thousands of which visit the museums each day. This project was an excellent opportunity to provide high quality, accessible and fit for purpose facilities across the museums for visitors and staff.
The Science Museum Group consists of 5 museums across the UK, the Science Museum in London, the Science and Industry Museum in Manchester, the National Railway Museum in York, Locomotion in County Durham and the National Science and Media Museum in Bradford. Resolution Interiors were contracted to complete major refurbishment and refresh works at 4 of these 5 sites. The Science Museum in London has been the biggest project, with works taking place in staff break out spaces and canteens, offices and toilets with dedicated changing places.
Our sister agency, Field took on the design work for this project, working collaboratively with the build team throughout to deliver RIBA stages 2 to 4.
The design and fit out of these spaces followed sustainable approaches, such as sustainably sourced, recyclable materials and low energy and low water use equipment.
