GRANT MUSEUM OF ZOOLOGY - LONDON
DISPLAY CABINETS / SHOWCASE
Due to the museum and its specimens recently being relocated to its new home at 21 University Street , London. KSA was nominated from the museums main contractor to finalise the design, fabricate and install the new showcases that would form part of the museums new exhibition. The housings / fascias of this new showcase were fabricated from aluminium and mild steel components and finished with a powder coating treatment.
Due to the exisiting Victorian bookshelves , that formed the basis of the cabinets, being distorted and ireggular in geometry , this required KSA to from an extensive survey of the existing structure to enable these new additions to be fitted accurately.
