The Scope

Part of our scope included this gigantic faceted and curved 64 ft. long by 12.5 ft. tall wall case with self-closing exhibition drawers.

A masterpiece that serves to present and protect a variety of artifacts that depict law enforcement officers, historic events and pop culture.

Challenge

The design and installation of the 64 feet long faceted case with multiple doors and exhibition drawers and its light attic with access panels at the top were certainly the essential challenges of this project.

This masterpiece is a central point in the museum and the quality needed to be impeccable.

Our Solutions

This case was fully assembled and tested in our shop prior to the delivery and installation.

Any defects and adjustments were corrected before shipment. The pre-assembly phase allowed us to test the case for durability, stability and performance, and to save on time for the on-site installation.
