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.
“It has been an absolute pleasure to work with Elmwood for the first time on this project.
St Enoch Fit Out was particularly challenging due to logistics and restrictions due to Covid but Elmwood and the rest of the team rose to the challenge and delivered a first-class cinema with minimal fuss. Organization, attention to detail and willingness to work along side a well-established team meant that we delivered one of the best cinemas we have completed.”
