Project Highlights:

Customized Storage System for presentation and preservation of natural specimens-designed to create a symbiotic environment to function concurrently as a museum and a reseacrh center.

A high profile, extremely challenging project, executed flawlessly from start to finish, on time and on budget, to 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 group, in collaboration with four other contributing organizations, materialized into 71,639 shippable items, transferred to site on 32 trailer loads of products.
