The Museum has taken over more Buildings previously used by private companies to establish a Teaching and Learning Centre to compliment the existing museum, we are proud to have been asked by Neville Special Projects to fire protect these additional buildings.

GRADE 1 LISTED BUILDING DEVELOPMENT

SWINDON CARRIAGE WORKS

Swindon Carriage Works was built in 1876 as part of Brunel’s Great Western Railway Works, at the time it was the largest carriage works in the country, it has been redeveloped into Units for businesses and we have fire protected the original Victorian steelwork using solvent based intumescent paint and an extra/hard top-sealer to protect against the weather. The work was carried out on behalf of Beard Construction.

NEW ADMISSIONS & LEARNING CENTRE

WINDSOR CASTLE

We are always pleased to carry out any works at an historic building and it is also gratifying to think that our work will ensure that visitors can pass through to the castle in complete safety, we have fire protected the new structural steelwork at the entrance and exit points using intumescent paint which means in the event of a fire the building will stay up for at least and hour, enabling safe egress from the building in the event of a fire.
