EIC wins Mary Rose museum contract

EIC has won the contract to provide mechanical and electrical services for the Mary Rose Museum project at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard. The national building services provider will install the critical environmental systems for this new £35 million project.
EIC wins Mary Rose museum contract
Working with the Mary Rose Trust, and alongside main contractor Warings and engineers from Gifford, EIC will be responsible for the heating, ventilation and humidity systems and controls that will maintain the correct environmental conditions for the conservation of one of the most famous ships in history, Henry VIII's flagship, the Mary Rose.
The building, designed by Wilkinson Eyre, is being built around the 500 year old hull which is too delicate to be moved. For the last three decades, since she was raised from the seabed in 1982, the fragile hull has been housed at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, alongside the renowned flagship of Admiral Lord Nelson, HMS Victory.
The complex conservation programme employed since the Mary Rose was raised, has seen the constant spraying of a water based solution, polyethylene glycol. This will end in 2011 when the hull will enter its final conservation phase, controlled air drying. The new museum is scheduled to open in autumn 2012.
EIC will install the Hanwell system which monitors the environmental conditions within the Ship Hall and other areas of close environmental control. It will also be responsible for the general lighting, heating and ventilation requirements of the visitor areas and other exhibition zones.
The contract is being delivered by EIC's South regional office, based in Lymington, Hampshire.
