« BACK TO ALL PROJECTS

Client: Victoria and Albert Museum
Contractor: Coniston
Architect: ZMMA
Location: London
Budget: £14k
Duration: 4 weeks
Category: GRG

The scenario:
The gallery underwent a 12.5 million renovation of the European 1600-1815 galleries. Our instruction entailed the manufacture and installation of a complex fishtail pattern, grg high-level ceiling. This was formed from grg ceiling tiles, pieced together on-site.

The challenges:
Budget and deadline were extremely tight as well as managing an intricate and complex design/pattern.

Our solution:
Having been passed the architects drawing, we worked with the contractor to produce CAD drawings for approval.

Our work:
We formed two latex moulds to create two separate patterns. 5 to 6 tiles made up one pattern. The tiles were then fibre fixed, glued and screwed into plywood substrate.

Client’s feedback:
“We found the quality of your company’s work and the attitude of your management to be excellent. Your safety ethos is what we would expect from a valued member of our supply chain and the fact  that you always maintained a can-do attitude did not go unnoticed and was very much appreciated. Mike Arney is an absolute credit to your company and I should be grateful if you would acknowledge this and pass on our best wishes.” Mustafa Ulla, Operations Director
