Details
Conservation By Design manufactured and installed 76 bespoke exhibition showcases, with dimmable fibre optic lighting, for three galleries housed within the museum.

These cases were all different in design and the completed exhibition incorporated every construction and access system from the complete product range of Armour Systems showcases. Special cases included an asymmetrical structure over 8 metres in length, 4 metres deep and 3 metres high, with fibre optic lighting and environmental climate conditioning. The project was completed within a five month period including installation.
