Completed in 2017 and designed by David Greenbaum, Smith Group’s lead architect on the Bible project, the new eight-level, 430,000-square-foot museum is designed to provide guests with an immersive and personalized experience as they explore the history, narrative, and impact of the Bible.
Zone’s scope of work included the fabrication of over sixty high quality anti-reflective mitred glass tops to be fitted with assorted stylish plinths and pedestals, in partnership with Design and Production Inc.
The biggest challenge was to coordinate the work with the exhibit builder and have our 60+ glass bonnets fit with the bases which were built by them.
The timeline was short, and the flawless precision of the glass assembly was crucial.
The assembly of these glass bonnets was completed by a team of extremely talented and professional technicians who have been with us for many years.
Custom tooling and equipment were used to improve our assembly methodology and accelerate the work. A strict quality control and glass inspection , combined with weekly meetings , were also mandatory to successfully deliver this project.
The Bible has been translated into thousands of different languages.
