Clancy Consulting were appointed to provide engineering consultancy services for the Civil, Structural and Mechanical and Electrical work at the new British Motor Museum, formerly known as the Heritage Motor Centre.
The new museum is visually more exciting with immersive displays of British motoring history, designed to appeal to both current fans as well as new audiences.
The redevelopment also included the new Collections Centre, allowing public access for the first time to an extra 250 cars from the reserve collections of the British Motor Industry Heritage Trust and the Jaguar Heritage Trust.
