This is a nationally important project, made all the remarkable when the full logistical story is explained (for example, only 0.01% of the museum archive is on display in RAMM). A&M’s attention to detail and respect for the ‘timeline’ of the project (Roman/Norman/Medieval/High Victorian) is evident at every turn. This care has been carried through by the contractor to produce a high-quality finish throughout.

Exeter City Council should be applauded as Client. The passion and commitment shown in the vision, funding and delivery of this building is extraordinary. Empowered by the community, the project now sits as an important ingredient of the emerging Culture Quarter and has become an educational and tourist focal point, and a city treasure.
