COST’s nearly six decades of experience in exhibit fabrication work is clearly evident in the museum exhibits created. Fabricating exhibits that deliver educational and entertainment content stimulates the learning process and satisfies our curiosity of history, sciences, and the environment. Adding immersive components furthers the educational mission. Truly effective immersive exhibits are those that are compelling and realistic. These requirements fit COST’s strengths to a tee.
Materials such as GFRC, FRP, shotcrete, acrylics, epoxies, and theme carpentry provide textures and finishes that look realistic and feel natural to the touch. These materials are used to promote hands-on learning and improve the patron experience. New materials and methodologies are always being explored to deliver enriching, educational, and entertaining exhibits to museum patrons.
The approach to any exhibit project involves a number of key groups and personnel. COST’s project managers have tremendous organizational and interpersonal skills, which provide a smooth transition from design through completion. Physical and 3D modeling bring ideas to life, while staffed construction crews and artisans work closely with the museum staff and the design team to ensure the final product meets all aspects developed through the preconstruction phases.
COST’s scope of service goes far beyond facades and faux treatments; graphics, murals, interpretive, and interactive exhibits are all under the COST umbrella of services. The precise integration of all these elements pulls an exhibit together to present a complex set of ideas in engaging and entertaining ways.
