The William J. Clinton Presidential Library and Museum opened in November 2004 to record crowds and rave reviews.

Under the directives of the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA), the William J. Clinton Presidential Library and Museum project required over 80 custom-designed cases, all of which had to comply with exceptionally strict conservation requirements. The library houses over 76 million pages of documents, 1.8 million photographs and 75,000 artefacts.

Working with museum design specialist Ralph Appelbaum Associates, we designed and built cantilevered full-height showcases to flank the outer walls, creating display alcoves. With full-access hinged doors across the entire face of every segment, this casework is a feat of engineering. On the upper level we created a single case over 120 feet long which encapsulates the building's truss beams - a sealed environment complying with the library's conservation requirements.

From engineering to prototyping to fabrication to installation ClickNetherfield excelled throughout.

President of Maltbie
