Two separate contracts, the first of which was an award-winning design for the Operations and Resources buildings as per attached photograph. The remaining contract involved numerous Listed Buildings which were upgraded and restored, the largest being the Pit Head Baths which involved total refurbishment, replacement of reinforced concrete beams and repairs, total gutting of building, new metal windows and total rendering externally with hydraulic lime render.
Further new buildings included the Conservation Workshops, a steel framed building and the construction of underground galleries and introduction block involving a reinforced concrete basement with a Sika waterproofing system and extending of the existing underground facility replicating the underground mining designs.
In addition, a large site wide infrastructure scheme which had to be phased to integrate within an occupied museum.
