Client: Beamish Museum
Venue: County Durham

Remaking Beamish is a £20m scheme of capital works and activity programme. The project will significantly add to the visitor experience, building new audiences and creating a more sustainable museum for future generations to enjoy. Responding to public demand, the project comprises the creation of a completely new area – the 1950s – bringing the museum forward into living memory, as well as additions to the existing 1820s area, including self-catering accommodation. Most of the buildings in the scheme will be replicated from an existing or previously existing building. The museum will remain open throughout the construction period.

Todd Milburn’s engagement relates to a £6m element including the construction of a 1920s cinema, to replicate Ryhope Grand Cinema, alongside 1950’s shops, site infrastructure and a district heating system.  The 1820s element consists of the construction of consolidation, repair and extension of existing farm buildings and supporting infrastructure within the 1820s town to create a period drovers tavern, pottery experience area, catering kitchen facility and period-influenced accommodation for visitors.

Todd Milburn is delivering Quantity Surveying and Principal Designer services on the scheme with construction due to commence in early 2023.
