Institutional: Customized Storage System Fabrication

custom welding services

The project highlighted here is a Customized Storage Systems for presentation and preservation of natural specimens - designed to create a symbiotic environment to function concurrently as a museum and a research center.

This high profile, extremely challenging project, was executed flawlessly from start to finish. The entire project was on time and on budget, to the delight of the University, GC, end-users (researchers and students) and all contributing parties.

The scope of work included the design, manufacturing and installation of 1,248 cabinets of 6 types and 7 sizes. The nine-months-long effort of our engineering, manufacturing and project management groups, in collaboration with four other contributing organizations, materialized into 71,639 shippable items, transferred to site on 32 trailer loads of product.
