Fabrication + Installation

Fabrication + Installation

Production facilities at Holt include in-house cabinetmaking, vitrine assembly, finishing, art graphics production, AV & electro-mechanical interactive production, and artifact mounting. These departments are all staffed with dedicated craftspeople that have years of exhibit production experience. This experience ensures that each component is produced to a quality standard that will meet or exceed our client’s specifications and expectations. Specific production areas are further defined as follows:

AV + Interactive Systems

Detailing

A Holt Environments Detailer will be dedicated to the project to convert the final design package, as approved by the client, into shop drawings that are used for fabrication and installation. Detailing is continuously involved throughout the production process providing solutions for fit-out, interface, engineering and structural issues, product availability and material specifications, and other critical production-related issues that may arise.

Installation

Installation is performed by a staff of experts who specialize in the on-site installation and dismantle. Because fabricators often have an intimate and unique understanding of the exhibit components, one or more members of the fabrication team may accompany installers on-site.
