Exhibit Consulting

For additional fees, consulting services provided may include exhibit unit selections, sequencing of exhibit storylines, content licensing, customizing exhibits to incorporate company-specific information, identifying planning efficiencies and economies of scale, and integrating new exhibits with existing exhibit units, (if applicable). Other services available can address architectural, mechanical, electrical, plumbing and life safety upgrades required to accommodate new exhibits, and suggest creative and dramatic facility upgrades, including sustainable design strategies and LEED certification. The result of this process will be a concept study, cost analysis for all work, and a preliminary plan showing the exhibit layout of your space.
