The Queen’s House dates from 1616 and was the royal pavilion of Queen Anne of Denmark, queen of King James I and later the residence of Henrietta Maria, queen of King Charles I. The Queen’s House is one of the key buildings in British architectural history because it was the first designed in the classical style. This design was revolutionary in England in its day; architect Inigo Jones was influenced by his two year tour of Italian architecture.  The building is Grade I Listed and a Scheduled Ancient Monument. 

The project will upgrade glazing, refurbish the galleries, the King’s Presence Chamber, the Tulip Stairs, provide new displays and finishes, lighting and flooring. This work will be delivered in closely controlled packages by expert teams who have long experience of working with the museum or similar specialist work.

The Royal Museums Greenwich needed a proactive and flexible project manager for this special project. Dorian Burt will be providing project management services to include programming, progress monitoring, overview, due diligence and reporting roles. We have a track record of providing adaptive professional services to the museum and we were excited to be invited to tender. We are delighted to have won this commission and look forward to this interesting and unique project.

Reopening of the Queen’s House in 2016 will see the return of a world class art collection featuring some very special pieces. You can read more about this here:
