Working with expert museum and exhibition designer Charles Marsden-Smedley and Inskip Gee Architects, we engineered a conservation heating system for the exhibition areas at Waddesdon Manor in Buckinghamshire.

The Treasury is a new, and already proving popular, highlight for visitors to Waddesdon Manor, which was built by Baron Ferdinand de Rothschild in the 1870s ‘to display his collections and entertain the fashionable world’.

The heating system, which includes humidity and temperature controls, has been installed alongside new lighting, security and data services for security and monitoring of the display cabinets, exhibition room and entrance area.
