On 30 June, the V&A Museum formally opened its new Exhibition Road Quarter. This c£50m construction project involved creating a stunning new entrance, courtyard and purpose-built gallery for the historic South Kensington site.
Fladgate’s construction team, led by Digby Hebbard, acted for the V&A throughout this exciting project. We initially engaged in connection with procurement and were then retained throughout the three year construction to advise on various project delivery issues.
Fladgate has an established practice acting for public attraction clients. Some of the firm’s earliest instructions relate to this sector, including acting as solicitors to the Commissioners for the Great Exhibition of 1851, and an instruction from Abraham Lincoln, President of the United States, in 1862, to help set up the Smithsonian Institution.
