One of our most prestigious projects, the Natural History Museum’s ‘Hintze Hall’ project included the refurbishment and restoration of the Grade I listed central space, creating additional gallery spaces at ground, first and second floor levels. The works comprised replacement of roof lights and conservation of the building’s listed fabric which acts as the gateway to the Museum.
Installation of “Hope” Blue Whale and Removal of “Dippy the Dinosaur”- The last phase included the provision of new structural support to accommodate the new Blue Whale skeleton centrepiece which is suspended from the ceiling in place of the Diplodocus skeleton cast, affectionately known as “Dippy the Dinosaur”.
For the first time, the public will be able to walk underneath the largest animal ever to have lived. The successful completion and handover of the Hintze Hall adds significant value to our pursuit of heritage and historic building projects and we look forward to further opportunities in this sector.
