Bringing history to life in a more interactive, user-friendly way was the theme for the refurbishment of the Andrew Carnegie Birthplace Museum. Housed in Carnegie’s former family home, the renovated museum was to retain much of the building’s original features while also including new state-of-the-art features including custom made audio visual hardware and touch screen displays.
Elmwood bespoke manufactured the set works, case plinths and wall panelling, as well as graphics, multimedia and interactives with display cases, helping ensure that the end result was a seamless visitor experience.
“As a main contractor, Elmwood successfully managed all sub contractors and ensured a high standard of workmanship. Very quickly we formed good relations with the Elmwood site staff, from contracts management to the men on the ground, joiners, brickies, labourers all of whom became part of the family.”
