The Trustees of West House are delighted to announce that they have appointed Focus Consultants, as Project Manager in a major step forward to deliver the William Heath Robinson Museum in Pinner, London Borough of Harrow.
Trust Chairman, Martin Verden said:
“This latest appointment follows the earlier selection of London-based ZMMA as Architects, who have designed and secured planning permission for the project and Bright White as Exhibition/Interpretation Designers and is further evidence that the museum is about to become a reality. Together with this team of experts we will be able to move on to the next phase of this exciting project.”
Focus Consultants, a leading edge project management company, based in the Midlands and London will be working with the architects ZMMA, who were responsible for the multiple-award-winning remodelling and restoration of the Watts Gallery in Surrey, to project manage the delivery stage of the project, resulting in the construction of the museum. It is intended that the tender documents will be issued in November and a building contract awarded early next year.
“Our company has significant experience of working with museums and collections across the country, and we are looking forward to being part of the team that creates a new museum dedicated to William Heath Robinson and his work,” said James Peake, project manager at Focus Consultants.
At the same time, Bright White, a York-based creative design consultancy will be working as Exhibition/Interpretation Designer. They have recently completed a stunning interactive display to celebrate the battle of Bannockburn and will be responsible for bringing Heath Robinson’s illustrations to life using the latest technology and creating a visitor attraction designed to appeal to audiences of all ages.
The scheme has enjoyed amazing support and the fundraising has gone really well, but more funds are required to reach the £430,000 target. Readers can donate to the museum on:
