Elmwood Projects appointed as fit-out specialists to work on new The Royal Mint Visitor Centre

Elmwood Projects is delighted to be appointed by The Royal Mint to work on its new museum, which is scheduled to open in May in Llantrisant, alongside Mather & Co and Rio Architects

This prestigious project covers three separate areas including; the Main Exhibition space, the Retail & Café space and the Factory Experience.

A wide range of Royal Mint coins and merchandise are presented and displayed in the exhibition and visitors are also able to purchase souvenirs that they can cherish and pass down to their children and grandchildren.

The 60 seat café is open from 10am to 5pm and serves a selection of hot and cold refreshments throughout the day to enjoy either before or after the tour.

The Factory Experience allows the public to enter one of the manufacturing areas, to discover how blank pieces of metal are made before being struck to become coins. From a viewing area, they look into the striking hall where thousands of coins are produced, 24 hours a day. Visitors are then given the option to strike their own coin to take home as a memento or have a picture surrounded by chests of coins.

Our experience in the Museum & Heritage sector has allowed us to be working on two of the Top 10 Museum Projects That Will Make A Difference In 2016 (The Royal Mint & Norton Priory) which is something we are immensely proud of.
