History and Culture Centre, Beverley for the East Riding of Yorkshire Record Office and Museum

Qubiqa were awarded the contract to supply and install all the high density storage in the new History and Culture Centre, Beverley for the East Riding of Yorkshire Record Office and Museum. Comprising a large amount of manually operated mobile shelving together with mobile picture racking, cantilever racking and specialist map cabinets, this is yet another of Qubiqas’ success stories on new Record Office projects. In fact Qubiqa have an enviable 'record' on these having also been successful on the previous four projects tendered".

Working closely with Metalico and the client this was an especially challenging project due to the fact that the client changed the order and the way in which items were catalogued and stored in the six new repositories from how they had been kept previously. This meant a tremendous amount of cross referencing and checking and the client appreciated Qubiqa's attention to detail to assist and ensure that adequate space was found for all the collections. As more space than usual had to be given over for air circulation to meet BS5454, storage space was at an absolute premium and the ability to accommodate everything was only satisfied after a number of proposals and meetings.
