THE SCIENCE MUSEUM
At the Science Museum in South Kensington we undertook a soft strip out of the Food for Thought Exhibition.
It consisted of removal of large glazing sheets, removal of timber partitioning and exhibit enclosures. Removal of floor finishes to the large exhibit area. Dismantling and removal of a large ships wheelhouse as part of the nearby maritime exhibition and general rubbish, furniture and office removals.
Due to the nature of the project, tremendous care was taken to reduce the amount of dust caused by the the strip out and deconstruction works. In addition, the work area was sealed so that no dust was able to leave the work area.
Our works were carried out at night because the debris had to be transported through another exhibition and into the the goods lift to the loading bay area and also due to noise constraints during the Museum opening hours.
We also undertook a soft strip of partitioning in the main entrance lobby area out of hours and had to ensure that the work area was cleaned and ready for visitors each morning following the overnight works.
