Building a museum is a collaborative project, and the design of the display solutions depends on many variables. We therefore encourage you to contact us in the early stages of the design. Our experts are happy to advise on showcase-specific topics such as lighting, climate control, choice of materials, etc.
We have a team of 10+ engineers at your service to support the concept & design of your desired display solution, ensuring the design meets your functional & aesthetical requirements.
Thanks to the capabilities of our R&D team, customers can count on us to help conduct studies to investigate the best possible solution for their collection in their specific environment.
In 2017 we carried out studies exploring the options to present, preserve & protect the Ghent Altarpiece, by Van Eyck, as well as the Diary of Anne Frank.
The planning of our projects is integrated into our masterplan, which we examine on a weekly basis during our operations meeting. This integration allows us to anticipate busier periods for efficient allocation of resources.
Upon signing a contract we assign a multi-skilled team under the control of the project manager. In order to define the project scope, the Project Manager identifies the external dependencies so that these can be defined together with the museum project team. This allows everyone to be on the same page from the very beginning.
Each project follows our proven general methodology, which we adapt to the specific needs and requirements of each individual project.
Throughout the project plan, regular update meetings are scheduled with the internal steering committee reporting on deliverables and making sure deadlines are met
We have a production facility of 10.000m2 and state-of-the-art manufacturing equipment. All processing, manufacturing and preliminary assembling is done in our workshop by highly skilled and experienced craftsmen and under the supervision of the project managers and the director of operations. This enables our cross-functional teams to meet, inspect and follow the process of display case manufacturing from A-Z on a daily basis which guarantees our unparalleled high quality of execution.
We minimize risk by having a close network of suppliers, all within 50 km of our facility. This allows for faster turnaround times and minimal carbon footprint. Furthermore, we have a minimum of three suppliers per type of material (glass, sheet metal, coating…), this way, we are vendor neutral and this ensures that we meet production deadlines.
Our display cases are expertly pre-assembled by our craftsmen in the workshop, making sure they are suitable for transport and can be easily mounted on site.
A Quality Check is performed in each of the various stages of a project.
In the design phase, a senior engineer is verifying all details before releasing the drawings.
Our procurement department is doing regular supplier quality checks to evaluate their production process. All compononents are labelled with a unique ID to identify the supplier and an 'Incoming Goods Inspection' is done once the components arrive at our facility. During the assemply phase, our engineers, together with production supervisor, are performing a final quality check before the cases are shipped to the customer. On site, the Site Manager is responsible for the quality of the installed cases.
In order to support our customers throughout the lifespan of the display cases, we organize a training and provide an operations & maintenance manual together with ‘as-built’ drawings at the end of each project. In this way, your personnel is well-trained and able to perform daily and preventative maintenance. On customer request, we can offer tailor-made maintenance agreements.
After each project, we organize a debriefing with the client. The feedback gained during this session is shared internally during our operational meeting and noted for future projects, thus enabling the transfer of knowledge and continuous quality improvement.
