Crown Fine Art celebrates its Art Central storage facility’s first anniversary

Crown Fine Art is celebrating the one-year anniversary of its purpose-built, hi-tech facility Art Central

The storage facility, which was officially unveiled in September 2015, has already proven popular among globally-renowned museums, galleries, auction houses and private art collectors. It has enabled their artwork and artefacts to be stored securely in a climate-controlled environment. The location, just five minutes from Central London has been an attractive proposition for a number of clients – providing a convenient location for safely storing art and artefacts.

“It’s been a significant weight off our shoulders not having to go further afield for our storage needs while important renovation work takes place at 7 Hammersmith Terrace and Kelmscott House.” Said Simon Daykin, Project Manager of Arts & Craft Hammersmith. “We have been extremely impressed with Crown Fine Art’s highly skilled technicians and would like to thank them. Our collection has undergone a rigorous cataloguing process and we have received first-rate technical and IT support from Crown Fine Art staff throughout.”

The facility is a flexible space which can be reactive to clients’ specific needs. Clients have the opportunity to utilise dedicated storage rooms – using them as an extension of their current space.

Art Central features modern extras such as private client rooms, viewing rooms, client work areas, meeting rooms and a photography room. Full temperature and humidity controls, inside secure loading and managed secure storage and a unique 4 hour fire-rated Durasteel wall offer the ultimate protection for irreplaceable art.

David Gosling, Head of Storage, Movement & Stock at Crown Fine Art, said: “Clients like the fact that they can create their own defined space and view their collections in what is essentially an extension of their current facility. Clients have been pleased with the level of sales they have achieved displaying their artwork in Art Central and we look forward to continuing to help facilitate this.”

Crown Fine Art recently became the first and only international fine art handling company to be awarded FORS Bronze accreditation, ISO 9001, 14000 and 27001:2013 as well as BS OHSAS 18001 standard certificates for its fleet operations, customer-focus, environmental, health and safety and information security credentials.
