Welcome to ESM Ltd. We work with museums, science centres and private clients. We provide installation management services and technicians for their touring and temporary exhibitions, and outdoor events and shows.

How we help

Touring Exhibitions

Sometimes our clients have an exhibition that they’ve had specially designed and installed into their venue, and they want to take it on tour. They ask us to come and have a look at it, work out with them how long and how many people will be needed to take it down, pack it up, and then install it into the next venue.

Site Visit Suitability

Sometimes they want us to do a site visit of the next venue to look at its suitability. Sometimes they need us to do everything from dismantling it in its current venue, packing it into crates and then onto trucks, and then meeting it at the next venue and taking care of everything until its opening day.

Local Site Management

On other occasions, our client has arranged a local install team at each of the tour venues, and just needs a working site manager or senior technician to oversee the installs and ensure everything happens in the right order and nothing gets damaged. Sometimes our clients just need a couple of technicians to help out with an install.

Our services include:

  • Venue site visits
  • Health and safety document production
  • Advising on people and time requirements for installs and de-rigs
  • Fork lift and telehandler operators for loading and unloading trucks
  • Site management services
  • Installation technicians
  • AV technicians
  • Electricians
  • Object, specimen and artwork handling
  • Liaison with host venue during install and de-rig periods

They like what we do... we love what they say!


Rob Gammage formed ESM Ltd in 2014, to provide installation management services for museums, science centres and other organisations who have exhibitions that they want to take on tour, but who don’t have an in-house team to send out with their exhibition. Our team has decades of experience in touring exhibitions around the world, and Rob is always happy to talk to you about your project.

We’re insured to work anywhere in the world, and have industry standard qualifications in CSCS site Management registration, SMSTS and IOSH health and safety certificates, first aid, fork lift truck, telehandler and IPAF scissor lift tickets.
