Heritage & Conservation
“Our McManus team members enjoyed a visit back to the building which was completed in 2010, to share insights into the design process with the McManus 168 Supporters Group.
On Sunday 12th June Karen Nugent, Project Architect for the environmental works, and Justin Fenton Project Architect for the building works, gave a talk at The McManus: Dundee’s Art Gallery and Museum. ”
Karen discussed our design for the environmental improvement works undertaken to the Albert Square setting, sharing how these proposals developed from the competition winning entry in 2002 through to delivery on site. Justin followed on to outline the development history of the building project sharing our approach to both the conservation works and the new interventions within the historic building to allow it to meet the needs of the client brief and to be fully accessible to the public. It was great to re-visit the project and Karen and Justin enjoyed the opportunity to share insights into the design process with the enthusiastic McManus 168 group.
