II.4)Short description of nature and quantity or value of supplies or services:
Norfolk County Council wishes to enter into a contract for the provision of Project Management and Quantity Surveying Services at the Norwich Castle for the Gateway to Medieval England Castle Keep Development.
Norwich Castle is part of a museum and art gallery complex managed by Norfolk Museums Service (NMS). At the heart of the visitor experience is the Grade 1 Listed Norman stone keep, which has outstanding surviving architectural features. Following centuries of use as a royal palace, Norwich Castle housed the county gaol from the 14th century until its conversion into a museum during the 1890s.
Gateway to Medieval England is an exciting new project that will see Norwich Castle Keep transformed back to its former glory, as 1 of the finest Romanesque castles in Western Europe. The project will drastically improve the visitor experience by reinstating the Norman main floor and making the Keep a more understandable and accessible building. A new gallery of medieval object displays of the highest quality will be created within the Keep, in partnership with the British Museum.
