National Railway Museum - York

National Railway Museum - exhibition hall, York

The National Railway Museum (NRM) in York is part of the British National Museum of Science and Industry. It tells the story of rail transport in Britain and its impact on society.

The NRM has won many awards, including the European Museum of the Year Award in 2001. It is the home of the national collection of historically significant railway vehicles, other artifacts and written and pictorial records.

The brief
Jet Environmental was selected to provide the heating and ventilation system for the National Railway Museum’s exhibition hall.

The solution
We installed an effective HVAC system that required no ongoing maintenance. The ductwork was designed to complement the design of the building, while our low resistance nozzles allowed the system to meet design parameters at low system pressures and very low noise levels.

Specific requirements:

  • match aesthetics of the building
  • low noise
  • members of the public
