Following the completion of a Scoping project in 2015/6 and the award of further funding by Arts Council England, ABTEM now requires an experienced heritage Consultant(s) to develop guidelines for the care and operation of larger and working heritage items, including: stationary engines; industrial machinery; steam & motor road vehicles; aircraft; railway vehicles; ships; boats. A new document based on the now out-of-print and out-of date publications: ‘Standards in the Museum Care of Larger & Working Objects’ (1994); MGC ‘Larger & Working Objects: a guide to their preservation and care’ (1997); and ‘Larger & Working Objects: a guide to standards in their preservation and care’ (2009).
This project is supported by a grant from the Arts Council England’s Museum Resilience Fund. The maximum budget for this project is £25,000.The project will be completed by March 2018.
