Harrods Halcyon Gallery

Project Description

Project Overview

Project Value: £250,000.00
Location: Halcyon Gallery Harrods store, London
Project type: Commercial

ProGen was commissioned to provide a full turnkey electrical services package for the fit-out of the new Halcyon Gallery within luxury department store, Harrods, in Knightsbridge, London. The gallery features world-class artworks by great masters including Andy Warhol and Pablo Picasso, as well as celebrated living artists such as Bob Dylan, Dale Chihuly, Lorenzo Quinn, Paul Cummins, and Russell Young.

The Challenge

The new gallery required ProGen to provide the electrical services turnkey package to an exceptionally high standard in order to showcase the millions of pounds worth of art within the space.

The prestigious department store would need to be open during the fit-out, so disruption had to be kept to an absolute minimum.

The tight timescales needed for this project also added to these logistical challenges, requiring intense co-ordination with the other service contractors onsite.

The Solution

Given the extensive experience ProGen’s project management team has within high-end installations in Central London, the challenges posed by this project were overcome.

Full design, along with design interface with suppliers and specialist sub-contractors, was managed, coordinated and executed successfully by ProGen. ProGen were required to design and build all electrical systems under the constraints of Harrods’ technical project specification.

The full extent of Progen’s design & installation responsibility included:

  • Co-ordination and Design

  • Power

  • Automation
