CLICKNETHERFIELD APPOINTED ON PRESTIGIOUS QATAR PROJECT

We are delighted to announce our appointment at the impressive new Qatar National Library in Doha.  We have recently formalised an agreement with fit-out contractors PF Qatar, who are working under main contractors Brookfield Multiplex, for the showcase contract on this exciting new-build development.  The contract entails 365 unique showcases.

The building, commissioned by the Qatar Foundation, has been designed by Dutch architecture firm OMA, co-founded in 1975 by the Rem Koolhaas.  It is situated on the outskirts of Doha in Education City, an initiative of Qatar Foundation covering 14 square kilometres and housing educational facilities from school age to research level and branch campuses of some of the world's leading universities.

IT'S ALL KICKING OFF IN MANCHESTER

ClickNetherfield recently completed a high-profile project at The National Football Museum.  Now housed within the former Urbis building in the city centre, the museum started life at Deepdale, home of Preston North End in Lancashire in 2001.

Around 2,500 items made the tough selection process to secure a place in the gleaming new showcases we supplied, including the neck brace worn by Manchester City's goalkeeper Bert Trautmann, who played on after breaking his neck during the 1956 FA Cup final between Birmingham and Manchester City; the ball from the 1966 World Cup Final; and Diego Maradona's Argentina shirt he wore during the infamous 'hand of God' incident.
