We are seeking a design company to develop and fit out a new exhibition Holroyd Smith – Electrifying the Future, due to open in March 2019, following the award of History Makers grant in May 2018 by the AIM Biffa Award.

The new Holroyd Smith – Electrifying the Future exhibition will replace the current display of items along the length of one wall in our Great Exhibition Hall which is also home to our Century of Trams exhibition. The overall length of the display space is approximately 40m.

It is important to note that the new exhibition will be expected to complement the existing one, whilst also standing alone as a separate exhibition, and the design vision submitted for the Tender should reflect this.

The National Tramway Museum is looking for a Design Company with suitable experience to deliver the design, development and fit out of the Holroyd Smith – Electrifying the Future exhibition.

As part of the selection process, we invite you to make a written response to our brief, including:

–              A design vision for the overall exhibition, including it complementary stance with the existing Century of Trams exhibition

–              Suggestion of interpretative techniques / interactives within the budget

–              A comment on the proposed timetable

–              A breakdown of suggested costs and fees

–              A list of the personnel that will be working on the project and their roles
