Appointed to the British Museum Framework
Civic Engineers has been successfully placed on the £45m construction consultancy services framework for the British Museum. Starting this year, the world-famous Bloomsbury institution is looking to revamp its existing buildings over a four-year period.
The framework replaces a series of multi-lot frameworks covering multiple disciplines – project management, quantity surveying, M&E and fire engineering, architecture and interior design and structural and civil engineering.
The structural and civil engineering component value is £8m, focusing on upgrades to its existing building stock. Works are expected to consist of strategic and technical studies or reviews, light touch refurbishments and heavier refurbishments of new spaces and masterplan projects, including new buildings.
Architects included on the framework include Dannatt Johnson, Avanti, Nex Architecture and Wright & Wright Architects who are involved with the Lambeth Palace Library & Archive. A major building programme for the institution in the past two decades included Rogers Stirk Harbour & Partners’ £135m extension.
