MUFC Old Trafford Museum, Manchester
One of several projects we have undertaken for MUFC during the last 25 years is the Old Trafford Museum that includes a visitor centre and the red café. We designed the complete mechanical, electrical and public health installations. The project involved the fitting out of the existing level 3 of the North Stand. Themed areas include the theatre, Red café and interactive exhibit spaces.
Designing the mechanical and electrical services for the building was a challenge due to the unique construction of the stadium and stringent requirements for public safety on Match and non-match days. Interfacing with existing systems was a major consideration during the design and installation. Existing systems had to be extended and/or modified so that they were coordinated with the exhibition stands and displays. All works were undertaken whilst the stand was occupied.
The museum won large visitor attraction of the year at the 2013 Manchester Tourism Awards, it has also been awarded an Enjoy England Quality Attraction Rose. It has achieved a Gold Green Tourism Status due to outstanding contributions to green tourism, including the use of latest technologies such as LED lighting, efficient boilers and renewable technologies.
