In addition, works will be undertaken to the foyer/entrance area to the lecture theatre: to relocate the suspended pendulum in the museum; the installation of a new suspended light dial below the pendulum; placement of new seating and the installation of specially commissioned art work.
Stroma Tech provided the provision of principal designer consultancy services to the appointed ‘Principal Designer’ for the pre-construction phase of the works.
