Area showcases was contracted by the CONTAIN to design, manufacture and install an impressive quantity of recessed wall display cases, totaling no less than 675 linear feet of glass. The Latin American art galleries, located on the fourth floor of the building, and the Asian art galleries, on the fifth floor, are where most of the displays are.

Challenge

This project was extremely budget and time sensitive, especially given the large amount of window displays that needed to be created and installed. The project was also expected to be completed despite the unusual conditions and challenges caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

Solutions

Both Area and the CONTAIN the teams worked closely together to standardize and simplify the design of the cases in order to reduce costs and meet deadlines. Weekly meetings with a dedicated project manager were key to keeping the project on track and ensuring effective communications.

Fortunately, and despite the challenges caused by the Covid pandemic, the technicians were able to travel to the United States to complete the installation of the display cases.
