Scope of Project:

Internal and External Walling and Flooring

Greenwich, London is home to the National Maritime Museum, a building rich with history and is the leading maritime museum throughout the UK.   C.F. Moller Architects were contracted in 2006 to design an extension which would suitably integrate with the existing UNESCO World Heritage site.

Portland Stone provided Portland Stone including filled Fancy Beach Whitbed paving for the upper and lower terrace, wall, ramps & parapet and Bowers Roach for the enclosed gazebos.

The £35m wing opened on 14 July 2011 and is the largest development in the National Maritime Museum’€™s history.

“The Sammy Ofer Wing creates a spectacular contemporary environment in which more people can appreciate the wonders of our world-class collections and their stories of human endeavour and discovery. The opening of this new wing is only the start of our five-year programme to revitalize and refresh our permanent galleries and exhibitions.”
