The construction of a new Munch Museum of Edvard Munch and Stenersen collection has started in Oslo. The collection is one of Norway's most important contribution to world heritage and is listed as an UNESCO World Heritage Site. Therefore, it was decided to build a modern and futuristic museum building in Bjørvika that can preserve and protect the irreplaceable artwork in a satisfactory manner.
Security, protection and storage is extremely important when it comes to such valuable heritage and the new museum will have a modern and advanced security system. Mil Sec Norway and Rapp Bomek initiated in 2016 a strategic partnership while working on the project for security products to the new Munch Museum. This cooperation was very successful and led to a contract award with the Municipal Undertaking for Culture and Sports Facilities with a contract value of around 40 million NOK.
The new Munch Museum is designed by estudio Herreros, consists of 13 floors with exhibition areas, shops, cafe, library and roof terraces with completion scheduled for 2019.
- "We are delighted to have been awarded the contract for security doors to the new Munch Museum. The contract is within one of our strategic core markets and is a perfect fit into our new EPCIC business model where we aim to take responsibility from Engineering through procurement, construction, installation and commissioning. Through this scope of work, we will be able to demonstrate our capabilities for a turnkey delivery were our strong focus on quality and customer satisfaction will be important. The cooperation with the contract owner, Mil Sec Norge AS, in the tender process has been excellent and the later acquisition of Mil Sec Norge will give us a good strategic position towards these markets, were we can utilize our strong and joint capabilities, towards future projects."- says CEO Terje Bøe in Rapp Bomek.
