Fraser Randall’s Fab Five
7th June, 2019
As we enter in into a new era for Fraser Randall under a new leadership team, we have sat and reflected back on over 30 years of Managing The Remarkable and asked the team which are their, most memorable and proud moments of working at Fraser Randall. Everyone was given 3 votes and we had a long list of projects from block busters at the V & A to trains, planes and automobiles exhibited at the Transport Museum, IWM and the British Motor Museum. However, there were a clear five projects which were considered by the team to be the most fabulous based on their innovation, design and the final end result. So, in chronological order, drum roll please….
1. Churchill Museum - Every challenge overcome: logistical, stakeholder, technical and operational. Still the reference point for visitor interactivity.
2. Weblab, Science Museum - Technically boundary pushing. To achieve and maintain operational sustainability is an immense management credit.
3. First World War Galleries, IWML - Described by the Telegraph as ‘new, provocative and improved, the £40 million rebuild of the First World War Galleries & Atrium Spaces (in time to mark the centenary of the First World War’s outbreak ) – two years in the creation – integrate art into the story of 20th and 21st century warfare as never before’.
4. Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty, V&A - This prize winning, record breaking exhibition sold over 48,000 tickets during its short 21 week run, and was recorded as the most visited exhibition in UK history.
5. Hide, Piccadilly - With a client brief to ‘create the best restaurant in London’. The result is a whole new expression of the everyday, revealed in surprising new ways.
