What a great way to start 2013! We have just been awarded the museum interpretation contract for Brighton and Hove Albion FC’s new museum at the American Express Community Stadium. The contract includes museum interpretation, signage, way-finding, graphics and branding.
Plans for the museum have been floating about ever since the stadium was built, and was originally intended to be in place for the opening of the Amex back in the summer of 2011. However, the club has been a bit busy recently with all the expansions and new training ground plans, so it was put on the back burner.
However I can now happily say that works are due to start and the new museum should be operational by the end of May 2013, allowing fans to enjoy the famous high points of the clubs 112 year history.
We were approached by BHAFC regarding the museum, and then introduced PLB to the football club. PLB is a heritage design consultancy, who we worked with extremely closely with on the Basing House Ruins Project where we provided much museum interpretation. The club were delighted with the proposals set out by PLB, and there after we successfully tendered for the works and manufacture is planned for February/March. We have good knowledge and experience now within the museum interpretation field, after projects such as Lewes Castle, Havering Museum and Basing House Ruins.
