Following BECK’s appointment as the Exhibition Fit Out Contractor to construct and install the museum displays in November 2016, BECK is proud to be part of the team, working alongside Event Communications and Aerospace Bristol, delivering Bristol’s newest visitor attraction, telling the remarkable story of Bristol’s world-class aviation heritage, featuring Concorde Alpha Foxtrot, the last of the supersonic passenger jets to be built and to fly.
The aerospace museum at Filton which was opened to the public in October 2017 is run by the Bristol Aero Collection Trust. It houses a varied collection of exhibits as well as Concorde Alpha Foxtrot, the final Concorde to be built and the last to fly.
The nine-acre site on Filton Airfield, Bristol includes two First World War Grade II listed hangars, providing over 10,000 m² of public exhibition space, learning spaces, workshops and, outdoor learning and testing space. The exhibition covers over 100 years of aviation history through two world wars, exploring the role of aircraft in these conflicts, through the drama and technological advances of the space race and on to the modern day.
As part of the redevelopment project, a new hangar was built for Concorde, which houses the Concorde Alpha Foxtrot and related exhibits, three meeting rooms and a studio space.
