Client: Yorkshire Museums Trust
Designers: Campbell & Co
Bespoke joinery and fit out: Elmwood
Involving two new exhibitions at the new-look Yorkshire Museum – ‘Medieval York: The Power And The Glory’ and ‘Extinct: A Way Of Life’ – this gallery fit out in conjunction with Campbell & Co involved the creation of five separate galleries over two floors.
Elmwood was commissioned to manufacture, coordinate and install all set works, plinths and display cases – including the construction of structural steel supports for the displays that were to feature the museum’s priceless stone artefacts – along with graphics and audio visual works.
“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.”
