Contractors wanted for TT gallery

Building contractors are being sought to work on the next phase of the new TT Gallery coming to the Island next year.

The feature is currently expected to open to visitors at the Manx Museum in 2022, presenting the story of the historic Island races from its beginning in 1907 to the present day and will include real-life accounts from riders, families, mechanics and marshals.

Now, Manx National Heritage is seeking contractors to undertake structural, building, mechanical and electrical works to the new exhibition.

MNH's Head of Properties, Steve Blackford, says: "All work will be completed to modern day accessibility, building, fire protection and conservation standards, with issues such as ground damp addressed to ensure historically significant TT motorcycles, objects and archive materials can safely be placed within it.

"These major works have to be completed before the next phase of the project can commence, which will include fitting out the new gallery including the exhibition mounts and display infrastructure, and then finally installing the amazing exhibits themselves."

The following phase of the project will then be spearheaded by specialist exhibition design agency, Creative Core, from West Yorkshire, who specialise in creating musem and gallery exhibits.

Any organisations wishing to submit an expression of interest to carry out the work is asked to visit the government procurement portal before Noon on Friday, May 14 - a link to it is available here.
