Chelmsford Museum Refurbishment
The initial scope of works required by Chelmsford City Council for the refurbishment of Chelmsford Museum was extensive and varied, providing The Hub with opportunity to carry out a variety of production and installation works, with a range of specifications for the different exhibitions. The scope of works included the refurbishment of the reception and shop, improving signage and orientation with set-work, metal-works and joinery, display cases and the installation and production of AV systems and graphics all included. The refurbishment of the reception saw the production and installation of display units, with the largest containing built in LED lighting and a Slatwall. The most intriguing aspect of the refurbishment was the production and manufacture of model bees, to be suspended from the ceiling. The development of the bees saw The Hub design and print the models using our in-house 3D printers.
An exciting opportunity in the refurbishments included interactive resources being developed and installed. These interactive features ranged from brass rubbing trails throughout the grounds and gallery spaces, to tactile rock model displays. Each exhibitions specification for interactive services was varied and as a result no two features were the same. The Hub, Chelmsford City Council and RFA Designs relationship flourished throughout the course of the project. With such a harmonious working relationship between all, open avenues of communication ensured the success of the project. With exceptional response times, the project ran smoothly and quickly, with The Hub and both the client and design team being open to suggestions.Photo Credit © Richard Fowler
