V&A Dundee and the Science Museum Group will also be able to use the framework but are not bound to do so. The estimated value of the V&A's requirements over the duration is 4 000 000 GBP-6 000 000 GBP.

Drawers, cabinets, plan chests
This Lot includes a number of standard storage systems including plan chests and cabinets (may be glass-fronted), and the V&A may require these to sit on mobile bases. Requirements could include long-span and short-span, rack supported, manual or powered systems.
Bespoke storage solutions
Due to the variety of collections held by the V&A and the historic nature of the V&A’s estate, on occasion the Museum has commissioned bespoke storage solutions (e.g. for musical instruments). It is anticipated that there may be some limited requirements in the future which would need to be tailored to individual collections’ needs or the constraints of a specific space.
Static, mobile and 2D pull-out solutions
This Lot includes storage systems for 2D &3D collections (e.g. paintings, mirrors, and stained glass) which need to be stored upright on static or pull-out mesh panels. Please refer to the tender documents for further information and specifications
Shelving for library and archival collections
