The Box, Plymouth

WWA as part of the Atkins team, has been appointed to drive the development of the £21m Plymouth History Centre. The appointment follows initial support* from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) including a £940,300 development grant – for a £12.8m grant for the Plymouth History Centre.

The Plymouth History Centre will transform the existing City Museum and Art Gallery in North Hill into a cutting-edge, interactive centre, three times its existing size. It will provide a new home for the city’s five most fascinating and vast historic collections, making them more accessible to everyone.

The official partners to the project are Plymouth City Museum and Art Gallery, Plymouth and West Devon Record Office, South West Film and Television Archive, South West Image Bank and the University of Plymouth.

The Atkins, Exeter based team will be leading the project, with Ward Williams Associates providing Project Management services.
