Museum interpretation from Britannia Storage
- Basing House, Basingstoke, Hampshire -
Basing House was built in 1535 as a palace and in its heyday was the largest private house in the country before being destroyed by Oliver Cromwell during the English Civil War in 1645.
A grant from the Heritage Lottery fund secured by Hampshire County Council with support from Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council has allowed the refurbishment of the Great Barn and Visitors Centre. The grant has also allowed Hampshire County Museums and Archives Service, supported by the Friends of Basing House to create a new, permanent museum in The Lodge, a later building that now stands on the site.
The newly refurbished Great Barn, Visitors Centre, Museum and Educational Facilities ensure that the staff at Basing House can offer a fantastic experience for families and most importantly, school children.
Britannia Storage were awarded the contract to design, build and install the display requirements for the new museum and this included, plinths, movable interactive base with cupboards incorporated and display cases.
Display cases were fitted with rear slat walls for ease of display change, hinged doors and internal lighting.
Interactive bases were fitted with lockable castors and lockable hinged doors to storage space below.
