Factory Settings Ltd were appointed as the principle contractor for stage one fit out of Hut 11A at Bletchley Park in June 2017. The tender was a two part process, allowing for a significant portion of design development during the first phase, after which we successfully submitted our tender return for part two.

The exhibition has complex design features such as multiple digital interactives, integrated dynamic LED lighting, a six screen video wall, and a fully automated working replica of the Bombe (a electro-mechanical device used by cryptologists to help decipher the Enigma code). We have used a range of sophisticated finishes for the exhibition including a bespoke metalised (sprayed metal) finish to the tubular laser-cut steel, which was developed specifically for Bletchley Park.
