Relocate The Manchester Museum
Our key task
The preparation, casing, and relocation of a diverse range of artefacts within the Museum's collection.
The Manchester Museum is unique among English university museums, possessing a worldwide collection of both the natural sciences and humanities. These include botany, zoology, geology, antiquities, ethnography, archery, and numismatics. They possess over five million specimens and artefacts, all of which have been designated.
Careful preparation to move precious, rare artefacts
The project included the careful preparation, casing and relocation of a diverse range of artefacts within the collection. These included mummies, a 25' long Inca canoe, a 20' tall plaster of paris cross, a Buddha, butterflies, and a large stuffed buffalo.
To ensure no harm came to the pieces, our staff wore protective gloves, as well as utilising specialist wrapping materials such as acid-free tissue. It was necessary to build bespoke wooden cases for selected items, with tilt stickers to ensure their safe transit.

I just wanted to touch base to let you know how smooth everything went. Simon and the guys were amazing and never moaned about anything, they were a pleasure to work alongside and I will highly recommend BCL to others going forward.
I would in fact go to say that they were the most hard working contractors that I have come across in my 7 years at Dunnhumby and we have had quite a lot over the years!
A huge thank you to all.
