National Museums Liverpool: A cultural heritage in safe hands

Harrow Green Case Studies - National Museums Liverpool: A cultural heritage in safe hands

handshake vectorThe Client:

Harrow Green has become the customers partner of choice in the on going development of the museums complex. The project scope, including clearance of offices, libraries and important collections in preparation for rebuilding, and also the relocation of collections from temporary storage, required a partnership with an experienced company able to meet a variety of challenges.

target vectorThe Project:

Harrow Green was engaged to clear the galleries that would accommodate the renowned new International Slavery Museum, and to remove the contents of other buildings scheduled for demolition. A range of skills and resources were required to move items of extreme fragility as well as large installations that needed skilled handling and special equipment.

building vectorThe Outcome:

Bringing specialist experience and expertise to the sensitive handling, preparation, packing, transportation and relocation of museum collections and exhibitions, ranging from birds’ eggs to ship building and engineering equipment, the company built a close working relationship with museums staff and a familiarity with the special requirements of its collections and museum sites.

National Museums Liverpool group of museums, visited every year by over 2million people, includes, among others, the World Museum – a national museum of international importance – the International Slavery Museum and the Mersyside Maritime Museum.

The new Museum of Liverpool, built on the World Heritage Site of Liverpool’s famous waterfront, demonstrates Liverpool’s unique contribution to the world and showcases popular culture while tackling social, historical and contemporary issues.

The carefully planned move of the contents of the Spirit Store needed particular attention. Harrow Green was aware that Liverpool’s impressive collection of preserved specimens – many of them in Victorian jars in a fragile condition and filled with formaldehyde – would mean taking special precautionary health and safety measures to protect museum staff in the event of spillage. Protective clothing, additional inner packaging and even an extractor fan were provided, though the move was completed without mishap.

At the opposite extreme, Harrow Green moved the contents of the dockside ship and engineering workshops, requiring cranes and heavy lifting gear.

“This was a very diverse project, we moved everything from sea shells to the 18-ton propeller of the Lusitania, and our methods needed to be varied and bespoke. The aim is to provide the best solution, whether it’s a pickled fish or a 20-foot clock tower.”

John Lord, Commercial Manager Harrow Green

Quotation markClient Feedback:

What we like about the people at Harrow Green is that they move at our pace, with the care of each object in mind. It’s been particularly important for us to have been able to develop a long term relationship that has served the museums, and Liverpool’s heritage, very well.
