Project Story

Tunbridge Wells Borough Council has chosen Willmott Dixon Interiors to convert its Grade 2 listed former library and museum into the new Amelia Scott Building. The project will include integrating a museum, art gallery, library, registrations, archives, adult education, tourist information and the Council’s Customer Service team into one space. The works will entail the demolition and removal of existing adult education outbuildings and partial demolition of the existing library to combine the existing museum and library as one. The construction includes steel frame and Glulam. The new facility is named after the town’s famous suffragette and social reformer, Amelia Scott.
Key Challenges
