Invitation to Tender: Liverpool exhibition fit out contractors

Short deadline: we are seeking bids to fit out our forthcoming exhibition at the Museum of Liverpool by Monday 27th November.


Download the full spec, tender requirements and guidance, please see the History of Place website


The History of Place exhibition at the Museum of Liverpool, part of National Museums Liverpool, is the second of three exhibitions to be mounted across the UK telling the story of disabled people and the built environment. One exhibition has already been opened at M Shed in Bristol, and the final exhibition will be located at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.


History of Place is an HLF funded project dedicated to telling the stories of deaf and disabled people and how their lives intersect with heritage buildings. In Liverpool, the focus of the exhibition is on the Royal School for the Blind – the first blind school in the UK and the oldest still in continuous operation today.


The exhibition dedicated to this story will itself be an exemplar of accessible design, with particular focus on communication with those who are blind or visually impaired (VI). However, it has been designed to accommodate the needs of as many people as possible. Attention to accessibility throughout the fit out will be critical.


The available budget is £14,000.


The deadline for responses is Monday 27th November.
