CBRE AND ROYAL MUSUEMS GREENWICH BEGIN PARTNERSHIP

CBRE has been awarded a three-year contract with Royal Museums Greenwich (RMG) to provide mechanical and electrical services across its attractions and properties including the Royal Observatory, Cutty Sark, the Queen’s House and National Maritime Museum which form part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site at Maritime Greenwich. The contract also includes archive and storage facilities at Kidbrooke, Feathers Place and the Brass Foundry at Woolwich.

Royal Museums Greenwich collectively see more than two and half million visitors pass through their doors each year and is committed to providing their visitors with inspiring experiences that transform their understanding of important subjects and stories within the collections.

The contract will see CBRE supporting RMG as they come to the end of their New Galleries Project, an exciting £12.6 million redevelopment of the National Maritime Museum which will commemorate the 250th anniversary of Captain James Cook’s epic Endeavour voyage. This transformative opening of four new permanent galleries and major improvement works will see the Museum’s permanent gallery space increase by 40 per cent.

Having amassed a wealth of experience in delivering services to visitor attractions, heritage listed buildings, public spaces, and critical, scientific and research institutions, Royal Museums Greenwich will have access to CBRE’s established processes which will help safeguard RMG’s Collection for future generations by maintaining the highest standards of care and conservation.

We are excited to start our partnership with Royal Museums Greenwich and look forward to working in collaboration with their team to protect their collections and buildings, whilst delivering a positive and memorable welcome for all visitors.
