Total combined:  £1,235,000.00

The new Gallery of the Islamic World entailed a major refurbishment of two historic 19th Century spaces over 2 phases, to enable visitors to enjoy a major re-display of the British Museums world class Islamic collection.

SI Electrical were proud to be awarded both phases of the project, the reinstatement of the original gallery and the fit out, plus the Crawford Stair project that required a major relocation of the basement mains services and provision of new vertical sub-main and services distribution to supply the new gallery. We were also appointed directly by the British Museum to provide high level display lighting, and by Goppion to assist with their case lighting.
