Glasgow Science Centre is a visitor experience with a mission to ‘raise awareness to all in Scotland of the importance of science to our well-being, our economy and our society in the 21st century.’

The 500m square permanent Powering the Future exhibition has a budget of £700,000-850,000. It is expected to run for six years and be used by 1.8 million visitors.

Working closely with the GSC Project Team and exhibition designers the successful consultancy will ‘design, prototype, construct and install a range of electro-mechanical and audiovisual based interactives,’ according to GSC.

A supplier will be awarded in December. For more details and to apply head here.

    I would advise this centre on Installing LED lights throughout the centre. It will save a minimum of 78% electricity bill annually. Its safe to say there are many suppliers out there who’s products don’t vouch to what the the supplier says. However i have across a company which have the best quality LED products in my experience and is definitely worth a look at. With variety of styles ranging from modern, contemporary and traditional you will be in good care. http://www.astutelighting.co.uk
