The British Horological Institute - Mechanical and Electrical Engineer
FOCUS CONSULTANTS 2010 LLP | Published November 16, 2015 - Deadline January 5, 2016
The British Horological Institute (BHI) is looking to appoint an experienced Mechanical and Electrical Engineer to help to develop the £4.9 million ‘Saving Time’ project. The Saving Time project includes:
Restoration of the existing Stable Block and Glasshouse to house the National Centre for Horology.
Repair and restoration of the Upton Hall West Wing, including the creation of a new glazed entrance atrium, to allow it to be used commercially for functions, events, weddings and the like.
The facility will include training workshops, student facilities, BHI offices, an education space, collection display spaces and visitor facilities.
External infrastructure enhancements to support the above, including 50 new parking spaces.
BHI have recently secured a Heritage Lottery Fund Round 1 award to develop the Saving Time project. The design is developed to RIBA Stage 1 level of detail and the initial consultancy appointments will be to support the client in realising a HLF Round 2 submission. This development stage will require creation of a RIBA Stage 2 design, RIBA Stage 3 design and statutory authority application. Funding for the development stage is already in place.
It is BHI’s intention to retain the successful Mechanical and Electrical Engineer for the implementation stage but this is contingent upon securing the full HLF award and the matched funding package being realised.
