Contract Award – A move of history
Akp have been honoured with the careful task of alterations and fit out works to facilitate the decant of the Burrell staff and exhibits to Glasgow Museums Resource Centre.
Glasgow Museums Resource Centre (GMRC) is the store for the museums’ collections when they’re not on display at other venues. It’s a vast building with rooms full of fantastic objects, from animals to armour, fine art to fossils, and much more. The main collections stored are Archaeology, Art and Painting, Arms and Armour, Natural History, Transport and Technology and World Cultures.
The works will amend the current layout which will therefore provide additional storage for the 1.4million item collection, as well as increasing archive space, studios and offices.
