The National Army Museum – London

On 16th March 2017, Her Majasty The Queen re-opened The National Army Museum in Chelsea, London, following its £23.75 million redevelopment. In 1960 the museum was originally opened by a Royal Charter and retrains its Royal connections with the Duke of Kent acting as patron.

MCF were thrilled to win the tender to supply the bespoke kitchen equipment and front of house custom servery counters with our distributor partner Gratte Brothers. The materials specified were a Corian worktop set into an 80x80mm thick staved solid oak surround. This provided us with the chance to show off not only our fabrication expertise but our shopfitting capabilities also.

Complete with bespoke drop in display units both heated and chilled, and a fully tiled fascia, the problem facing us was the expansion and contraction of the natural material once on site. Using the correct expansion gaps and bonding materials has made for a truly stunning counter in an exceptional environment. Photos do not do this project justice unfortunately.
