Complexity of integration helps tell Dutch museum’s story
25 Feb 2015 . BY Jason Holland
Exhibitions at the National Military Museum feature a range of technologies
Rapenburg Plaza has developed a fully integrated lighting design, multimedia, audio and show control system at the recently-opened National Military Museum in the Netherlands.

Featuring a 20,000m exhibition area, it is Europe’s biggest military museum and opened to the public on 13 December, 2014.

Bruns served as main contractor for the museum interior and subcontracted Rapenburg Plaza to work with exhibition architect Kossmann.dejong on the project.

“Rapenburg Plaza has an intensive way of looking at hardware and designing systems. Their complexity of integration was vital to telling the museum story,” said Maarten Taborsky, project director at Bruns. “All 17 museum environments use technology in an iconic, integrated and interactive way. Visitors can interact with technology either by accessing information or bygaming – so there really is something to engage everyone who visits.”

As part of the project, Rapenburg Plaza says it brought several design considerations to life, including sophisticated technical lighting bridges installed in the high ceilings for access to equipment for maintenance as well as long distance cable runs and multiple server rooms. The lighting design consisted of more than 3,900 energy efficient LED lighting sources.

The company also designed, installed and programmed a network-based show control system. This system gives complete control over the lighting and AV equipment and allows the Rapenburg Plaza programmers to manage and monitor the entire installation remotely.
