The museum hasfour galleries, a ‘Learning Loft’ and a viewing terrace withpanoramic views over St Andrews Bay.The Museum contacted us in September 2016 after receivingfunding. Their plan was to spend the money refreshing andupgrading four of their existing ClickNethefield Inca4 showcasein Gallery 2 that looks at the lives of St Andrews studentsthrough the ages.Our CLASS team have replaced the original internal bottomdress panels in two of the cases with new fabric wrapped panels;the original panels were grey and sloped and limited the client towhat they could display. On the other two cases, these panelshave been changed to LED light sheets which provide a moreversatile display solution for exhibits. We have also upgradedthe rear structural glass to fabric wrapped dress panels at therequest of the client that provides a fresh backdrop for the newexhibits, including the jacket of an alumni, Geordie Stewart, whoclimbed Mount Everest in 2011.The final change made to the showcases may be the moststriking - the lighting. This was upgraded to dimmable LED’s;these replaced the original low voltage lighting.

4Lapworth Museum, Birmingham, UKOut with the old.and in with thetruly ancientThe Lapworth Museum Redevelopment Project.The Lapworth Museum of Geology is one of the principalgeological museums in the UK and has the largest and finestgeological collection in the Midlands Region.The Lapworth dates back to 1880 and the foundation of MasonCollege, the forerunner of the University of Birmingham. Themuseum is based in the original grade II listed Aston Webbbuilding at the University of Birmingham and the collectionsinclude significant material from many influential geologists,scientists and collectors of the 19th and early 20th centuries,including geological pioneer Professor Charles Lapworth fromwhom the museum takes its name.“ The new bespoke ClickNetherfieldshowcases for the three galleries were amajor part of the investment in terms of themuseum fit out budget, and therefore neededto be of high quality and have longevity.”The museum recently underwent a major 2.7 m redevelopmentto change it from a very academic, departmental universitymuseum, to a public museum at the University. This was amajor re-orientation of the museum to be much more outwardlyfacing and publically engaging whilst continuing to supportteaching and learning in the Higher Education Sector.Key to the redevelopment was to restore the museum’s core toits original 1920’s splendour; develop three new galleries (twoentirely new, doubling the museum footprint); sympatheticallyrestore the key heritage display cases; adding innovativeand interactive elements to the displays; incorporating newcontemporary display cases and lighting and created anoutstanding, state-of-the-art education room; added a newtemporary exhibition space and improved visitor facilities.The new bespoke ClickNetherfield showcases for the threegalleries were a major part of the investment in terms of themuseum fit out budget, and therefore needed to be of highquality and have longevity.Key Museum requirements for the cases, were: Ensure access for our diverse audience (which was poorwith the historic cases). Ensuring appropriate security of the objects. Ability to provide appropriate environmental conditions forobjects within cases. The look and feel of the product. Ensuring that theold interior of the museum worked in harmony withthe contemporary introductions made during theredevelopment. The provision of high quality lighting solutions within thecases, including exact colour temperature specifications forkey cases such as the mineral wall. A bespoke specialist case providing switching betweennormal light and both short-wave and long-wave ultraviolet light to showcase the dramatic property of mineralfluorescence. Inclusion of robust visible drawer display units.The Lapworth team were keen to use ClickNetherfield due totheir reputation, proven track record, and the overall high qualityand design of the product.Article by: Jon Clatworthy, Director, Lapworth Museum ofGeology, School of Geography, Earth & Environmental SciencesUniversity of Birmingham.

6Designcraft, AustraliaAntipodeanartisansClickNetherfield’s partner in Australia, Designcraft, share their thoughtsof working with remote, regional and smaller clients.We all look forward to being involved in large, high-profileExhibition, Gallery and Museum fit-out projects; our reputationis built on this type of project.However, at Designcraft, ClickNetherfield’s Australian distributor,the core of our business lies with our Remote, Regional andSmall-project client base (RR&S). It’s hard to clearly define, asevery client is different, but these institutions generally havesome common threads running through them which we usuallydon’t see in the larger State or National organisations. Oftenthey are smaller in staff numbers, with a significant numberof staffing roles being filled by volunteers and non-museumprofessionals, funding is often through grants, bursaries, giftsand donations. They can be as diverse as age care villages,Arts in Health organisations, private collectors and collections,historical societies through to town and regional Galleries andMuseums.Simple, easy to use, low maintenance and value for money arethe key driving factors for our RR&S clients. Products that canbe serviced, changed, updated and reconfigured using locallyavailable resources are important. For the smaller institutionsand smaller projects, a one-stop-shop is really desirable; RR&Sclients come to ClickNetherfield and Designcraft for objectmounts, armatures, graphics and tertiary fit-out, as well as forshowcase and joinery supply. We often find our product comeson recommendation from larger national or loan institutions,where a safe display is key to securing loans and donations.Our network of RR&S clients stretches from New Zealand toExmouth (WA) and from Hobart to Thursday Island; an area thesize of Europe.Featured are 3 examples of recent projects for clients who sitwithin our RR&S client base.Paula Gaelic is Manager of the Western Bay Museum in KatiKati,Bay of Plenty, NZ. Designcraft supplied a series of 8 hingedPrism showcases, which were fitted to base structures suppliedby a local joinery company:“I am very happy with your showcase product and thrilled Itook on board the wise recommendation from Auckland WarMemorial Museum to purchase ClickNetherfield / Designcraftshowcases. They are a fantastic high quality product whichhas provided donors with confidence to lend and donate to ourcollection. The installation team were very professional andensured that we were comfortable with and well trained in theuse of the showcases. I change the exhibition gallery every 3months and the showcases make for very easy access withexhibition items, signage and any adjustments I may wish toattend to.”Patrick McMahon is President of the Inverell RSL Sub-branch.Designcraft supplied 5 ClickNetherfield Spectrum showcasesfor their museum, for the display of weapons and militarymemorabilia donated by local service men and women:“The glass showcases allow us to display a great number of themore interesting and sensitive pieces in our collection, in a verysafe manner. They are simple to use and will certainly help us inthe future when trying to secure items or exhibitions from othermuseums or RSL Branches.”Bradley Hammond is Director, Orange Regional Gallery &Orange Regional Museum. Designcraft supplied a number ofClickNetherfield Prism showcases onto powder coated steeltable-type bases.“We wanted a suite of museum grade cases (laminated glass,inert internal fit-out including powder coated base dress panels,high security locks) which could be used extensively throughoutour public gallery spaces, but also used to house loan pieces ortravelling content in a display environment that is familiar to ournational institutions. We have found the cases to be excellent fordisplaying a range of items to date including drawings, antiquebooks, small sculptures and letters of historical significance.The aesthetics of the cases has made an impression on ourvisitors and the security aspects have given us peace of mindwhen presenting valuable items.”Article by: Phillip Quartly, Manager Museum Projects,DesignCraft.

10Nixon Library, USAThe Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum reopenedin October 2016, featuring a renovated 17,000 sq. ft. museumand stand-alone theatre that brings President Nixon’s life,career, achievements, and controversies to life in an interactiveand comprehensive exhibition.Thinkwell Group designed and produced the new museumexhibition and theatre, partnering with the Richard NixonFoundation and the National Archives and RecordsAdministration (NARA) throughout the process. At the timethe project was initiated, most of the exhibits and artifacts atthe Museum had not changed since it first opened, and theFoundation felt it was time for the world to take a new look atRichard Nixon.The new exhibits contain approximately 300artefacts from Nixon’s life, and the teamworked with ClickNetherfield for the displaycases through US Partner Kubik Maltbie, theofficial fabricator on the project.“We wanted to be as objective as possible while creating a trulyamazing exhibit.telling the story of a man who was dedicatedto serving his country and pushing for things he believed wouldmake the country better,” says Kate McConnell, Senior CreativeDirector at Thinkwell Group responsible for the project.The team was challenged with capturing the entirety of Nixon’spolitical career in the exhibit renovations, and it was a welcomechallenge to figure out how to highlight the numerous, oftenovershadowed, milestones in his life, from his monumentaldomestic and foreign policies established during the Presidencyto his role as a trusted advisor to Presidents Reagan, Bush, andClinton in Nixon’s later years.Working with the Foundation and NARA brought a uniqueperspective to the teams collaborating on the project. Thesewere the people who worked in Nixon’s administration, and,as McConnell says, “it was incredible to listen to their storiesand hear from people who were there when things actuallyhappened.” The teams worked closely with NARA to craft anarrative for the new exhibit that would ensure it truly coveredall sides of Richard Nixon’s legacy.As the exhibit narrative came to life, vendor partnerships becameanother key piece of the renovation. In particular, the team knewthat artefact preservation and seamless display integration intothe exhibits would be critical to the guest experience. The newexhibits contain approximately 300 artefacts from Nixon’s life,and the team worked with ClickNetherfield for the display casesthrough US Partner Kubik Maltbie, the official fabricator on theproject. Many of the artifacts, such as the moon rock from theApollo 15 mission, have very specific conservation requirementsregarding light levels and temperature. ClickNetherfield wasinvaluable to the team in navigating the installation and testingwhich display case each artefact required.The exhibit includes artefacts that span Nixon’s lifetime - fromelection memorabilia and head of state gifts, to the first family’sclothing and mementos from Nixon’s life before politics - andthe environmental conditions for each piece had to be examinedwithin the context and atmosphere of the exhibit.Article by: Katherine Mitchell, Thinkwell Group.

14Seamus Heaney HomePlace, IrelandSeamus Heaney HomePlace, a new 4.5million centre celebratingthe life and work of the poet and Nobel Laureate SeamusHeaney, opened in September 2016 in the village of Bellaghy,Co. Derry/Londonderry.Housing an exhibition, performance space, community rooms,café, gift shop and visitor services, the newly-designed buildingis on the site of a former RUC station. The new purpose forthe site, and the Mid Ulster District Council’s investment in it,constituted an extremely positive sign for the future of the area.Tandem, working with the Council and the Heaney family,produced the engaging, multi-sensory permanent exhibition‘Man & Boy’ within HomePlace. Installed over two floors, ittakes visitors on a journey through Heaney’s life, from a youngboy who grew up in the very locality in which HomePlace isbased to the distinguished poet and global figure he became.Through a combination of inspiring, engaging copy, historic andcontemporary images, artefacts and creative interactives, thework of Seamus Heaney is brought to life and made relevant topeoples’ lives today.“ ClickNetherfield’s stunning circular displaycase was the focal point for ‘Imagination& Inspiration’ - one of the most importantzones in the exhibition.”Visitors encounter Heaney through his family, friends andthe wider circle that influenced him before seeing how theseconnections inspired the poetry for which he became sorenowned. Multiple opportunities for audio, visual and tactileengagement are built in throughout the experience. Visitors canlisten to Heaney recite his own poems while simultaneouslyreading them on a touchscreen with optional added contextualanalysis, catering for both the ‘toe-dippers’ and ‘divers’ amongour audience.In an immersive interpretation of his working space, a speciallycommissioned piece reacting to the news of Heaney’s NobelPrize for Literature plays in close proximity to objects from hisstudy and ephemera, mounted in ClickNetherfield discoverydrawers. The visitor encounters Heaney himself on the footageand hears and sees him reading one of his best-loved poems‘When All the Others Were Away at Mass’, an emotional highpoint in the exhibition on his life and work.An extensive creative zone was designed to appeal to allvisitors, aged 5 to 105, with spaces for reflection and feedbackon the exhibition, a visitor-created word hoard, poetry gameplay with word spinners and magnetic poetry, kite building andhistorically accurate dress-up for children and adults inspiredby the poems. Poetry books by Heaney and other poets areavailable, encouraging visitors to dip or dive into reading orcreating poetry as they wish.Tandem worked closely with ClickNetherfield to design andinstall bespoke display cases and discovery drawers housingsignificant artefacts that belonged to Seamus Heaney, includinghis iconic duffle coat and hand-written draft manuscripts.Tandem’s Director Andrew Todd said, “ClickNetherfield’sstunning circular display case was the focal point for‘Imagination & Inspiration’ - one of the most important zonesin the exhibition. The screen in the base shows an animatedpiece representing the flow of Heaney’s imagination and howit manifested in his poetry. The clarity and quality of the casedesign really enhanced the display of the vintage ConwayStewart pen we ‘floated’ within it.”The opening of HomePlace has been one of the most significantcultural events to happen in Northern Ireland for many years andreaction from the press and public has been overwhelminglypositive. With a packed schedule of cultural events planned, itintends to go from strength to strength in its aim to recognisethe achievements of Seamus Heaney and promote creativity inall its forms, for everyone from both the local area and furtherafield.Article by: Claire Dalton, Tandem Design.

Sedimentary rocks Sedimentary rocks are those rocks which are formed by the weathered sediments of pre existing rocks (igneous or metamorphic rocks). The geological processes that involved in the formation of sedimentary rocks are as under: 1. Weathering, 2. Erosion, 3. Deposition, 4. Compaction 5. cementation

23. To make rocks easier to study, they are classifi ed into three main groups: igneous rocks, sedimentary rocks, and metamorphic rocks. 24. Let’s take a closer look at these three groups of rocks. 25. Graphic Transition – Types of Rocks 26. Temperatures within the Earth can be so hot that solid rock is melted into a liquid called molten .

Igneous rocks can form aboveground from quick-cooling lava and underground from slow-cooling magma. Sedimentary rocks are made from cemented and compacted sediments. Metamorphic rocks are formed underground when a rock is exposed to intense heat and pressure. All rocks can weather and erode. All rocks can melt into magma.
