Imperial War Museum – Lambeth Road – Office Refurbishment

Client: IWM

DMR provided commercial support for the delivery of the office upgrade works at Lambeth Road, Imperial War Museum.

The works were particularly challenging due to the grade II listing of the museum. Understanding of museum policy and security was critical to effectively valuing works and ensuring the necessary provisions were made. The works involved the complete refurbishment of the offices adjacent to the museum floor.
