Dunno about that, sets are supposed to be dismantle-able... they did it with the previous one at least once. I'm surprised they managed to keep this a secret, a console room change is almost like a new companion, really!
Unfortunately, the season 5-7 console room set wasn't made to be dismantled. They had welded it into the soundstage beams, probably for stability reasons. Oddly, I think it would have been easier to move the 9/10 console room (assuming they didn't finally strike it after "The Doctor's Wife").

One interesting possibility next year is that there could be a Hartnell console room standing set, thanks to the Gatiss drama about the creation of Doctor Who. Its construction would come out of that film's development, but it would be available for Doctor Who to use.
