Michael Hunt

National Museums Liverpool has awarded Reed Engineering with an exhibition fit-out contract at the new Museum of Liverpool on Mann Island.

The Surrey-based company, which previously was appointed by National Museums Liverpool to refurbish several galleries at World Museum Liverpool in William Brown Street, has won a 'package C' contract worth just over £687,077.

Reed Engineering will carry out electrical installation on exhibition space within the new museum.

In March, NML said it will spend £12m on the fit-out of the exhibition galleries at the new Museum of Liverpool currently nearing completion on the waterfront.

National Museums Liverpool has also awarded Sysco with a 'package A' contract to provide audio visual hardware for the exhibition fit-out.

The 100,000 sq ft building will contain roughly 60,000 sq ft of gallery content. There will be four main gallery areas telling the story of Liverpool in themed displays. The £72m museum is due to open in three phases during 2011 and 2012.

The Museum of Liverpool contract team includes 3XN, AEW, Galliford Try, BRC Imagination Arts, Buro Happold, Mott MacDonald and Turner & Townsend.
