West Berkshire Museum Re-opens After Face Lift

The doors have re-opened at West Berkshire Museum in Newbury Following a major refurbishment programme.

The project involved the restoration of the historic Cloth Hall and Corn Stores, the creation of a new link building and visitor facilities, and complete refurbishment of all display and activity spaces. The redevelopment was to increase exhibition areas by a third so that much more of the Museum’s collections could be displayed.

Nick Barton, Electrical Director at Silcock Leedham Consulting Engineers said 'the unique long and narrow building and exposed services strategy presented a particular challenge to all aspects of the building services design but we are delighted with the finished result.'
