Over the years, we’ve worked on thousands of projects. There’s nothing we enjoy more than making our clients look like rockstars. We’d love to make you look like a rockstar too, and have put together this short lists of tips to make your project successful from the very start. Museum Exhibit Fabrication Company
1. Allow for a realistic timeline.
Fabricating physical elements takes time and some tasks, like waiting for paint to dry, simply can’t be shortened even with a rush fee. It’s important to bring us in as early as possible so that we have plenty of time to engineer, build and install or ship. Not sure what’s realistic? Feel free to consult with us as soon as you have an inkling of the project and we’ll help you figure out how much time it might take. Museum Exhibit Fabrication Company
2. Let us know what your brief is.
We love when our client partners share the project background and objectives with us. Why? Understanding what you’re trying to accomplish (rather than simply what you’d like us to make) often allows us to suggest solutions you might not have thought of. We might be able to find ways to make your ideas even more awesome than you first imagined. Museum Exhibit Fabrication Company
3. Let us know what you’re working with.
We want to make sure we come up with a solution that’s within your budget, and it’s easier for us to do that if you let us know what your range is. It’s disappointing to both parties if our estimates come in too high for you to execute. If we’re on the same page from the get-go, we can often come up with solutions that will meet your brief *and* your budget. And, we’re more than happy to consult early on in your conceptualization phase so that you can present doable ideas.
4. Be open and honest about your must-haves, nice-to-haves, and can’t-haves.
Need an experiential element to last through a 12-week tour? Super important to have an exact color match? Let us know. The more detail you can give around your requirements, the better able we are to present methodology and materials recommendations that will meet and exceed expectations.
5. Be willing to be flexible.
We take great pride in our work and will go above and beyond to make sure you’re thrilled. That said, sometimes there are production limitations based on materials or other concerns (such as safety). We will always collaborate with you to make sure that the final product meets your brief and then some, and it helps if you’re willing to be flexible when we make suggestions based on our years of experience.
