In 2019-2021, the complete studies were held by 22 study groups of different specialties which collaborated in 4 countries to complete the study of a modern museum which, apart from the permanent exhibition spaces (7,500sqm), included complex functional units (27,700sqm in total) and outdoor and urban landscaping (23,000sqm).
A long and intense collaboration with the Department of Antiquities of Cyprus was also required in order to finalize the issues of the archaeological collections and the permanent Exhibition for the completion of the Museological and Museographical study. At the same time, there was close cooperation with the employees of the Department, in order to determine the specifications and equipment of the Conservation Laboratories.
Flood protection was also carefully provisioned, due to the Pedieos River, over a period of 200 years.
The energy design of the complex was done in order to meet the category of “almost zero energy footprint” in accordance with the requirements of the legislation.
Finally, a common component of all stages was the effort to keep the total cost of the project within the defined framework of the Contract.
In September 2022, the process to tender for the construction contract for the NCM development was successfully completed, and CYFIELD JOINT VENTURE & IACOVOU (€121,000,000 +) was selected as the contractor. Construction will begin in 2023.
