Permanent Exhibition

National Maritime Museum

Ahoy! Children's Gallery

2015

Factory Settings are proud to have completed this permanent gallery aimed at the under 11s at the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich.

Both varied and vibrant, the gallery is a collection of interactives, themed pieces, and play areas built to be durable enough to withstand fifteen years of spirited use by children.

Factory Settings were Principal Contractor on the project, which required the removal of the previous permanent gallery, and a complete re-installation of the electrical, mechanical, and HVAC systems. Following on from this we installed an entirely new subfloor and rebuilt the walls to allow for a graphic wrap to run around the entire gallery.

From managing a broad range of subcontractors across a four month build, to creating firing cannons, and a bespoke air hockey table, this project was a real chance to showcases our scenic construction skills, both large and small scale.
