Thomson Gray have been re-appointed to the National Museums Scotland professional service frameworks. 

We are delighted to continue our successful relationship with National Museums Scotland who we have worked with since 2012 through previous frameworks, individual project call-offs and national competitions.

Our experienced team will provide quantity surveying, contract administration, principal designer and building surveying consultancy services across three individual frameworks over a four-year period.

We will support their in-house estates team across their ongoing planned and preventative maintenance (PPM) programme, both minor and major repairs, on-going exhibitions, new installations, life cycle, energy and infrastructure works.

National Museums Scotland is the largest multi-disciplinary museum in Scotland, with 12 million items in its collections and the largest body of curatorial and conservation expertise in the country. Their property estate includes the grade-A listed Victorian building on Chambers Street, the National War Museum Scotland, the National Museum of Flight, the National Museum of Rural Life and the Collection Centre in Granton, Edinburgh.
