National Maritime Museum: Nelson, Navy & Nation
This new permanent gallery in the National Maritime Museum presents the story of the Royal Navy and the British people, from the Glorious Revolution of 1688 to the defeat of Napoleon in 1815. This object-rich exhibit showcases over 250 valuable items from this period, including many of Admiral Lord Nelson’s personal effects and his iconic Trafalgar uniform.
We were appointed to undertake the strip-out of the existing exhibit, and subsequent full mechanical and electrical designs for the new 5,900 ft² gallery. This responsibility encompassed the base build works as well as the exhibition fit-out.
Our designs made best use of the existing services infrastructure, whilst adapting the mechanical plant to meet the upgraded requirements of the new gallery.
The gallery is made up of numerous and complex services encompassing sophisticated lighting, graphic and digital presentations, music and a responsive wall; our designs ensured the integration of these facilities, enabling them to interact seamlessly with each other.
