The museum tells the story of the history of democracy in Britain and about ordinary people’s lives at home, work and leisure over the last 200 years.
It is located in a Grade II listed, former hydraulic pumping station designed by city architect Henry Price.< We carried out a detailed survey and identified areas of improvement through the introduction of the EnergyAce energy saving system to create a whole site energy saving of 13.75% and remove penalties from the electricity bills. Installation was non obtrusive during normal working hours and without the need for any major changes in infrastructure. Payback was less than two years although a reduction in maintenance costs and the protection of all electrical appliances, plant and machinery will improve the real payback considerably.
