Stonehenge Visitor Centre
Stonehenge is one of the wonders of the world and the best-known prehistoric monument in Europe. The world-class exhibition and visitor centre presents 250 ancient objects, Neolithic Houses and a 5,500 year-old man.
Appointed by English Heritage as managing contractor, The Hub undertook all specialist setworks and graphic installations for the exhibition, whilst managing client direct contractors off and on site. This included conservation grade display cases and audio visual hardware.
Critical to the success was understanding the interpretative design, undertaken by Haley Sharpe Design, the performance specification of the iconic building developed by Denton Corker Marshall and taking this understanding through development, setting out, manufacture and installation.
Key challenges included working in the UNESCO World Heritage Site, ensuring that the installed exhibitions met the needs of the clients permanent and tempoary collections and ensuring for the client the easy day to day management of the exhibition and visitor centre.Photo Credit © The Hub
