With over 15,000 square feet of facilities in the West Midlands and a network of known specialist sub-contractors, The Hub are able to deliver these high quality projects throughout the UK, Europe and more recently the Middle East.
Our personnel are assigned to a project for the full duration, with each and every project having the full commitment of a board director. This ensures that our ethos of delivering projects on time and on budget, in a spirit of cooperation and collaboration is achieved on all projects and results in long term relationships that see The Hub working for organisations time and time again.
This has included long standing relationships, delivering temporary and permanent exhibitions for Tate, Science Museum Group, Natural History Museum, Victoria and Albert Museum and Bletchley Park Trust.
The Hub understands the needs of their clients and professional teams and gets involved without commitment on many projects at an early stage to support technical development, budgets and programmes prior to pre-qualification and tender.
With an excellent Health & Safety record and a commitment to environmental, social and economic sustainability The Hub knows that the service and product it provides, for projects ranging from £5,000 to £5,000,000, in new build and historic building environments is of the highest level.
The board directors take the role of Project Directors on all our projects supporting the Project Manager to ensure all projects are high quality and maintain a closely coordinated approach.
