New Project – National Museum of Scotland

SSM are delighted to be awarded the Masterplan Phase 4 project at the National Museum of Scotland on Chambers Street for National Museums Scotland.  

The Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) has announced its initial support for this next phase of the Masterplan to transform the National Museum of Scotland and this project will develop two new galleries to open in 2018. The galleries will showcase Ancient Egypt and East Asian collections. 

Both of these collections are internationally important and amongst the finest in the UK. The new Ancient Egypt gallery will explore the complexity and diversity of this fascinating culture. The East Asia gallery will highlight major themes in the region’s arts, culture and history, enabling visitors to encounter and be inspired by the richness, depth, and diversity of the culture of China, Japan and Korea. 

We are delighted as usual to be joined by our Engineering team of Will Rudd Davidson and EDP Consulting Engineers, and to work alongside London-based ZMMA as Exhibition Designers.
