Contract for the Provision of Design Services for the Base Build of the Interior Spaces of the Museum of Childhood, London.
The V&A is looking for an exciting and ambitious design team to transform the interior spaces of the Museum of Childhood. This project sits within the broader context of our FuturePlan, an ambitious programme of development in which the best contemporary designers are creating exciting new galleries and visitor facilities, while revealing and restoring the beauty of our original buildings. The V&A is the world's leading museum of art, design and performance, promoting the practice of design and increasing knowledge, understanding and enjoyment of the designed world. The Museum of Childhood (MoC) is the UK's National Museum of Childhood, and the largest institution of its kind in the world. As part of the V&A estate, the mission of the MoC is to explore art, design and performance through the material culture of childhood and to hold in trust the nation's childhood collections.
Inner London — East.
The procurement process will follow the restricted procedure. An honorarium of 1 500 GBP will be offered to tenders that submit a tender in the second stage of the process. For more information, please download and review the procurement documentation.
The MoC collection comprises over 35 000 objects ranging from the 16th century to the present day. It has a broad reach, covering all aspects of childhood and is unparalleled in the rich diversity of its media. The collection is displayed in a listed ironwork structure which formed the original V&A museum before its relocation, and an exceptional example of Victorian engineering. In order to support the redevelopment of our permanent and temporary galleries, we are now seeking a base-build design team to develop full shell and core design, including structural, M&E, heritage, lighting and acoustic schemes. This package will also cover limited elements of fit out design in some specified areas. Further fit out packages for galleries will be issued separately later in the programme.
As set out in the procurement documents.
