Dorset Museum Nominated for Two Awards!

Monday August 9th 2021

We are delighted that our project Dorset Museum has been shortlisted for two awards in the Michelmores Property Awards 2021 - Leisure & Tourism Project of the Year and Heritage Project of the Year. 

The project combined all the museum’s collections on one site, provided archive storage, publicly viewable storage, conservation resources, better research access and improved galleries and temporary exhibition space. 

The works comprised the demolition of various extensions and ancillary buildings at the existing museum, refurbishment of the retained existing buildings and construction of a new extension comprising a basement, ground floor and two upper storeys. There were severe constraints on access to the site.

MDA acted as Cost Consultant and Specialist Funding Adviser.
