It might seem to be a long time for a refurbishment to reach completion, but the amount of construction work
both externally and internally is huge.
Replacing the old leaking and uninsulated roof with a new one (now completed); re-siting and constructing a new
café, shop and conference centre (all with new heating and lighting systems) and fitting-out the exhibition hall with
displays, audio visual equipment etc. cannot be achieved quickly. The results will be spectacular!
Yes, we are getting closer to completion but unable as yet to give a firm opening date. The picture below is an
artist’s impression of how the foyer, café and shop may appear
