The PPP project, scheduled to open in autumn 2014, will unify the Dutch military’s museum branches into one 20,000m2 building, incorporating the Army Museum in Delft and the Aviation Museum in Soesterburg.
Turner & Townsend will be working on behalf of the lenders and will be providing full technical due-diligence services, having already advised on the project’s technical risks pre-construction. It will also continue to monitor the project as it continues through the build and maintenance phases.
“With 200,000 visitors expected each year this is a large-scale project, demanding exceptional design and challenging logistics,” said Turner & Townsend director Roland Verniers. “Our risk assessments will enable the lenders to make informed decisions throughout the build process. We look forward to contributing to the delivery of this unique destination and adding the National Military Museum to our roster of international heritage and military commissions, including the UK’s National Memorial Arboretum.”
