The ICA maintains a fully appointed wood and fabrication shop. Our highly trained technical staff is capable of building virtually any shape or size crate necessary for storage or transport. All of our crates are built to pass international materials restrictions. Crate interiors are lined or padded as needed with the safest and most archivally appropriate materials available, while making every effort to work within each client’s budgetary needs.
We also design and fabricate custom display cases, sculpture bases, dust-protective plexiglass vitrines, recessed “shadow-box” display units, and custom picture frames for objects large and small. Our paper conservation lab includes a matting and framing department capable of handling any matting and framing project a client might desire.
