Architect sought for National Museum of Scotland renewal

  • Comment

The National Museum of Scotland is seeking an architect for the next stage of its £80 million redevelopment masterplan

The winning team – featuring an architect, structural engineer and M&E services engineer – will prepare a round two Heritage Lottery Fund application and, if funding is approved, deliver the scheme.

The base-build andexhibition fit-out project is the fourth phase of Hoskins Architects’ masterplan for the Grade-A listed Edinburgh landmark.

Service installations, floors, joinery, wall linings, ceiling linings and decoration will all be covered by the appointed multidisciplinary design team.

First opened in 1861, the high-profile attraction – previously known as the Royal Scottish Museum – was designed by naval architect and Albert Hall-designer Francis Fowke.

The museum re-opened in 2011 following a £47 million overhaul (pictured) by Hoskins which won the job to masterplan the building following a competition in 2004.

A third phase of the project – delivering ten new galleries covering decorative art, design, fashion, science and technology – is due to complete next year.

The deadline for requests to participate is 12noon on 29 June.
