Bespoke joinery and fit out: Elmwood
With over 5,500 different manuscripts, books, personal artefacts and private artworks to showcase, the new Robert Burns Birthplace Museum involved extensive set works, plinths, display cases, integrated graphics and audio visual works.
Elmwood were tasked with coordinating and managing the many innovative displays, from full design detail drawing and fabrication to delivery and installation. We also oversaw the manufacture and integration of specialist housings and seating throughout the landmark project – a project awarded Best New Permanent Exhibition in 2010 by the Museum and Heritage Awards for Excellence for its ambition, vision and innovation.
“Without a doubt, Elmwood having their own superior craftsmen added to the value of the company. The joinery work was exemplary and they transformed our basic idea for a bespoke counter into a working masterpiece.”
