Bishop Museum

OUR CHALLENGE

The Hawaiian culture is steeped in tradition and history, and honoring that rich legacy is no small task. In our stunning renovation of the Bishop Museum’s two huge halls by Ralph Appelbaum Associates, Delphi took great pride in mounting, encasing, and integrating artwork with graphics, signage, and historical content. The museum’s existing casework also needed to be renovated, and a high-tech AV system, including large-screen projections, needed to be integrated into the historic building’s tight spaces.

HOW WE SOLVED IT

Thanks to our expertise in sophisticated AV integration, fabrication, and installation, we renovated the halls and cases with respectful execution. We coupled careful measurement to tight tolerances within the historic cases with strength testing to ensure that heavy artifacts would be held securely while staying true to the elegant design. After carefully planning the execution, the Delphi team worked on-site for two months to install the extensive collection into the cases and integrate the new AV technology.

WHAT ELSE WE DID

David B. Kemble, the museum’s senior exhibit designer, said, “Delphi exceeded the high expectations that we and the exhibit designers of Ralph Appelbaum Associates had when we selected them as the lead fabricator for our project.”
