Client: Aldeburgh Museum
Architect: Hudson Architects
Exhibition Fit Out: Elmwood Projects
Aldeburgh’s historic Moot Hall is a much loved landmark within the area, this Grade I listed Tudor building dating back to the 16th century captures and celebrates the area’s heritage and culture. Therefore, the redevelopment project of the Aldeburgh Museum within Moot Hall aimed to breathe new life into displays so that the unique collections continued to give an insightful view into the lives of the people of Aldeburgh past and present.
As previously mentioned, the Moot Hall timber-framed building dates back to the 16th century, thus a large degree of environmental sympathy was crucial throughout this project, we ensured the setworks were manufactured taking into account the buildings subsidence so the fabric of the building was protected. Moreover, Moot Hall is presently still used for local governance, thus we had to overcome challenges surrounding the issue of obstruction to daily proceedings and also the health and safety of the buildings users and personnel throughout.
Elmwood Projects were appointed to deliver the Building Restoration and Fit Out, consisting of:
Our supply chain who carried out the specialist packages are as following: Electrical (M4), Flooring (McKay), Showcases (Archa), Interactives (Myriad), Graphics (Leach)
“As a main contractor, Elmwood successfully managed all sub contractors and ensured a high standard of workmanship. Very quickly we formed good relations with the Elmwood site staff, from contracts management to the men on the ground, joiners, brickies, labourers all of whom became part of the family.”
