This time our crew of experts were tasked with a unique project to de-install and crate a large scale art exhibition on display at A/D/O (The Amalgamated Drawing Office), a 23,000 square foot former warehouse located in Greenpoint, Brooklyn’s Industrial Business Zone.
The spectacular art installation, titled “Spirit of the City”, was a modular system of revolving mirrored columns set on a grid configuration. The Precision Crating team of specialists worked with our friends at All Seasons and the “Spirit of the City” designers to carefully de-install the exhibition and crate the items, in alignment with international shipping standards, for safe transit to Dubai.
The Precision Crating experts arrived on-site prepared with pre-built crates fabricated to exact specifications and constructed with a unique shock mount crate base design intended to protect the columns from the rigors of transport.
The de-installation involved dismantling a 12-foot x 30-foot wooden platform, disconnecting all of the wiring, and unbolting each of the mirrored column bases from the concrete. With an initial estimate of a single day of labor, the Precision team remained adaptable as the job extended over three days, with the inclusion of the crating of an additional complex piece of hanging art.
The Precision Crating specialists succeeded in preparing this complex art exhibition for safe international transit and arrival at destination in Dubai.
