Victoria & Albert Museum
Victoria & Albert Museum, London
We have worked as engineers and conservation advisors for the Museum, with its complex estate of Victorian and Edwardian buildings, over many years.
Our engineering projects include the restoration of the main Aston Webb façade and of the Henry Cole Wing terracotta, the redesign of the acclaimed British Galleries, the design of the illuminated steps to the main entrance and the relocation of the RIBA drawings collection to the Henry Cole Wing. Our projects often involve working close to museum objects and we have extensive experience of designing works to minimise risk to the objects and disruption.
Our Conservation Plan, currently on its third update, summarises the Museum’s complex history, sets out its significance and set out policies for on-going developments and regular maintenance.
