LJJ wins M&E contract for Design Museum’s new home in Kensington

LJJ, Design Museum, contractor

LJJ has been appointed by Willmott Dixon Interiors to deliver the M&E design, development and installation for the new £80 million Design Museum in Kensington, London. The project will see the museum move from its current premises near Tower Bridge to the Grade 2 former Commonwealth Institute — a building originally designed by Robert Matthew John Marshall Architects and featuring a copper-clad hyperbolic paraboloid roof.

LJJ will bring the electrical supply into the building and also be responsible for installing all small power, data, audio-visual and lighting systems — along with heating, cooling and ventilation.

The scheme will provide a space three times larger than the Design Museum’s current home.
