The installation was a critical component, being a historic building, vibrating floor and difficult pathways, technical cases, opening systems, AER, atypical finishes, climate control, worked closely with architect. Approximately 160 exhibits are within 42 GLASBAU HAHN display cases. The space is strongly influenced by the external environmental conditions and air exchange through the arcade into the main Abbey airspace. It therefore presents significant challenges in ensuring a stable environment appropriate to the objects which are to be displayed. The installation process was managed very well around events and ceremonies in the Abbey. Working time was adjusted with respect to the events or by avoiding any noise during this time. The kick base of the showcases was scribed according to the floor height, which deviated strongly. The showcases had to be fixed in a manner to the floor, so that vibration caused by the double wooden floor was avoided. The historic building with its small and difficult pathways required a detailed delivery and installation methodology.
