Our talented manufacturing team created a variety of bespoke exhibition pieces to house the artefacts which were going on display.  Display cases were manufactured from ZF MDF and glass.  Display tables were created from a mix of ZF MDF (for the tops) and poplar – more commonly referred to as ‘tulip wood’ (for the legs).  Bespoke wall hung display boxes with Perspex hoods were also created with ZF MDF backing boards.  Within the display cases and in the display tables there are a mixture of ZF wood display plinths and Corian inserts, all of which we manufactured.

The Perspex boxes were not created by us but instead were from specialists QD Plastics in Dumbarton.  We effectively communicated and co-ordinated with them to ensure timely delivery and exceptional quality standards.

Part of the scope of works included the fitting of free issue foil to prevent off gassing from the MDF.  This, combined with the use of Corian elements, ensures that the artefacts are protected from the damage which gases could potentially cause.

Our experienced team successfully fitted these bespoke manufactured items on site.  Some of the Perspex was specially fitted in our factory whilst some was fitted on site by supplier QD Plastics – and our team worked closely with them to ensure safe and timely works execution.

Our Small Works division site team carried out additional non-manufacturing works on site including stripping down partitions and building new partitions.
