Main Brief: Review existing artwork and arrange for relocation to new offices. Review existing framing, asses and restoration requirements to the artwork, consolidate artwork from both venues to be re-house on the refurbished site. Pack and move artwork, transportation and installation.

Sculpture Brief: Commission wall sculpture for the main reception required to suit the general design of the space with special attention to the available fixing points within the wall.

Art Contact was already familiar with Charles Russell Speechly’s existing art collection as we had purchased all the artwork for Speechly Bircham and following their amalgamation with Charles Russell,

Art Contact was invited to oversee and manage the relocation programme for the artwork.

In advance of the move Art Contact pre-arranged the new artwork layout for each floor onto a plan, which was presented to the client for approval. Art Contact over saw and managed the packing and labelling of the artwork, prior to moving the existing artwork to the new site. Existing artwork form Charles Russell collection, where reviewed and re-framed to complement, those from Speechly Bircham. In addition, a site specific wall sculpture by Phillip Melling was commissioned in a recess by the main reception area.
