Work Continues on The National Museum of Qatar
Planet’s export team are continuing their work on Jean Nouvel’s National Museum of Qatar. Commissioned by the Emir’s wife Sheikh Al Thani the new museum, whose unique structure was inspired by a desert rose will provide Qatar with 86,000 sq. ft. of permanent gallery space.
Planet UAE working under the main contractor Hyundai have designed and supplied the p100DG system with double glazed doors and blinds. Bespoke single glazed sections, were also designed by Planet to be used to form a steeped position with 19ml glass.
As well as designing and supplying the partitioning, members of Planet’s installation team have been braving the 50 degrees heat in Qatar to oversee the fitting of the partitioning to ensure that all work is up to standard.
Having shipped out the last 40 foot container last week, project completion seems to be on track for early 2016.
