British Commercial Vehicle Museum, Leyland

Heritage Hotel and Leisure Refurbishment and Maintenance

The Challenge

With a new roof completely installed, together with insulation which previously never existed, demolition of what used to be the café and the cinema, leaving a huge empty floor space, the museum was completed.

The Outcome

This large floor area became exhibition space and included several interactive units to be both informative and entertaining. The new café and conference hall sit alongside the newly designed shop at the front of the museum.

The archives, which were previously ‘hidden away upstairs’, have been relocated at the far end of the exhibition hall where visitors are able to see the extent of documents and historic photographs held, and watch as pictures seemingly damaged beyond use, are painstakingly restored.

Results

A new heating system ensures that it is possible to open the museum throughout the year. With the new lighting/electrical system, the museum was transformed into a place visitors return to ….time and time again.

New hands-on and interactive displays were constructed ready for installation, which included a ‘Drive a Lorry’ simulator for young children to enjoy.
