Christie's Phase 1 - 3

Christie’s is a British auction house founded in 1766 and has conducted the greatest and most celebrated auctions through the centuries providing a popular showcase for the unique and the beautiful. It’s main premises are on King Street and St James’s in London along with various auctions held in and around West London.
Since 2013, we have successfully carried out works to provide Christie’s Auction House a refreshed Collections Area and several galleries. The quality of our work has proven to be exceptional which is why we continue to carry out Special Works for Christie’s over the years.

Phase 1

Reception/Collections Area

As part of a framework for Christie’s King Street we completed works known as Phase I in January 2016 which has improved the Payments and Client Registration Area through re-modelling the existing reception and gallery space into a new high finished cashiers and “meet and greet” lobby. The reception now has specialist lighting, new cashier counters, meeting rooms, and display lobby including wall, ceiling and floor finishes. All of the works were undertaken while the surrounding galleries remained are in occupation.

Phase 2

We commenced works to form a temporary gallery space and delivered the project in time for Christie’s 250th Anniversary Exhibition “Defining British Art” in June 2016. Works included; installation of feature lighting, new partitions and ceilings, AHU units, timber flooring.

Phase 3

The final phase of the works includes the strip out of temporary exhibition carried out under Phase 2 and involves heavy demolition of structural walls to form a new gallery. The team will form new structural openings including design of temporary works, installation of new Raised Access Flooring to Private Viewing Gallery.

The fit out of the gallery includes installation of new timber flooring throughout, new Mechanical and Electrical works to all galleries including underfloor heating and feature lighting. Other items included; supply and installation of new shop fronts, supply and Installation of new security rated front door and installation of new London Wall sliding wall system.
