The World’s Largest Egyptian Antiquities Museum Construction Project – Grand Egyptian Museum
By Maria Piacente, VP Exhibitions, Lord Cultural Resources
Lord Cultural Resources is on the team of the joint venture between Hill International and EHAF Consulting Engineers contracted by the Ministry of Culture’s Supreme Council of Antiquities of the Arab Republic of Egypt to provide project management services during the design and construction of the Grand Egyptian Museum. Lord’s specific role will center on managing the tender process and construction for the exhibitions.
The Grand Egyptian Museum will be the largest and most important Pharaonic museum in the world, the largest museum in Egypt and one of the leading scientific, historical and archaeological study centers on the globe.
The museum’s twenty-first century galleries, designed by Metaphor, will be located in an iconic and distinctive building located on the edge of the desert abutting the Giza Pyramids world heritage site. The Museum, designed by Heneghan Peng Architects, will cover over 3,500 years of ancient Egyptian history and house more than 50,000 artifacts, including King Tutankhamun’s famed mummy and golden burial effects. The main achievement so far is the construction of the new conservation center with a documentation unit working to create a computerized database for all the artifacts.
Lord Cultural Resources is proud to be working on this once-in-a-lifetime project housing one of the most important collections in the world. Our team is proud to be contributing to the implementation of the construction of the exhibitions that will tell the stories of the one of our greatest civilizations.
