Currie & Brown wins contract for new Clarks museum
12 July 2022
Currie & Brown has been appointed by the Alfred Gillett Trust to provide project and cost management services on a new museum.
Alfred Gillett Trust is a Somerset-based charity dedicated to preserving the heritage collections of C&J Clark Ltd, the family who founded the global shoe-making company we know as Clarks.
The client has contracted Currie & Brown to provide both project and cost management services on a new museum to house the Clarks family and company collections and share them more widely with the public.
The museum, designed by architect Purcell, aims for completion by 2025, to coincide with the 200-year anniversary of the founding of C&J Clark in 1825. The project team also includes M&E engineers, Qoda, and structural engineers, Mann Williams.
Myles Clough, director in our Exeter office, commented: “We are delighted to be involved in the creation of the museum. This project continues our involvement in the culture and heritage sector within the south west, providing services associated with the refurbishment/extension and repurposing of listed buildings.”
