The British museum received a grant of £10 million from the Heritage Lottery Fund and is undergoing the facilities upgrade to maintain its international reputation for excellence. The project it set to help create a more efficient and more environmentally sustainable museum.
The Crane FS valves were used as part of the variable air volume systems and air handling units providing heating, air conditioning and ventilation in the museum.
