Services: Project & Cost Management & Specialist Trade Package Management
Due for Completion: Spring 2023
The new Hunterian Museum including the retail space and ancillary display areas form a major part of the Royal College of Surgeons £65m Transforming the Building development project. The post war buildings are being demolished and a new building designed by award winning architects Hawkins Brown will be erected. The Royal College of Surgeons collections will be displayed throughout the new building.
Fraser Randall’s scope includes the management of the shell and core works to the museum space as well as the eight separate galleries exploring the history of surgery, contemporary surgical practice and related disciplines. Having been involved from the early stages of the project, we have managed the appointment of a leading design team and the development of a complex fit-out design. Being appointed across both the basebuild and exhibition has allowed us to ensure works are co-ordinated from the outset which mitigates the risk to programme and cost of having to revisit uncoordinated areas. We have undertaken a large amount of value engineering with the design teams to maximised value for money for the client across both the basebuild and exhibition,
Alongside the full Project and Cost Management services, we are also responsible for directly managing a series of specialist trade contractors including showcases, AV hardware, digital media and object mounts.
