The Showcase Contractor will need to be able to share the NAM and the Design Team’s vision which will transform the spaces into ideal locations to display a diverse range of NAM’s collections combining sensitivity to the building and the collections with an imaginative, sustainable, collaborative and transformative approach.
The Exhibition Designer for the project is Event Communications and the Project Manager and Quantity Surveyor is Focus Consultants.
The new National Army Museum is due to open in Autumn 2016 and therefore all showcases must be completed and installed by end of Summer 2016 to allow time for object installation. There will need to be careful coordination with the exhibition fit out contractor who will be appointed shortly.
The anticipated value of this contract is between 1 000 000 — 1 500 000 GBP.
