Posted on Thursday 7th July 2016

On Friday 8 July 2016, the newly revamped National Museum of Scotland (NMos) opened its new galleries to the public. The opening took place during the museum’s 150th anniversary year.

The £14.1m redevelopment project will see ten new exhibition galleries dedicated to science, technology, art design and fashion, where National Museums Scotland will display their outstanding collections of science and technology, and decorative art, fashion and design.

Following the success at the relaunch of the National Museum of Scotland in June 2011, BECK is privileged to be part of the team once again to deliver this prestigious project, undertaking the role of Exhibition Fit Out Contractor, alongside the design team, Metaphor.

Stephen Greenberg, Director of Metaphor says, “We’ve thoroughly enjoyed our working partnership with the BECK team on this project – We’ve worked with them on previous occasions, it is always rewarding as they do their best to realise the design meets the client’s needs”

“We are extremely pleased to be part of the team once again at the National Museum of Scotland and to continue to work within our iconic National Museums,” said Graham Wakeford, BECK Managing Director. “As I have said on many occasions, we always maintain our passion for the ‘Best of British’ projects; to be working at the National Museum of Scotland once again, is truly an honour. I think this demonstrates the confidence the Client team have in BECK’s quality and service, and of course as ever, it is not just BECK, it is the entire team including the skilled personnel at the museum, the conservators and all the curatorial team along with the experienced direction from the Museum themselves.
