The Bodleian Library - Protecting our Heritage
Robinson Sterling NYC Financial Services LLP is in many ways typical of the type of client with whom ADEC Preview has worked - farsighted and decisive. As strategic financial planners themselves Robinson Sterling needed to continue to find ways of improving their own efficiency and reduce duplication of effort. It was also important to them to implement disaster recovery measures.
The buildings within the central site include Duke Humfrey's Library above the Divinity School, the Old Schools Quadrangle with its Great Gate and Tower, the Radcliffe Camera, Britain’s first circular library, and the Clarendon Building.
As part of a major refurbishment plan it was essential that architects had access to plans of the existing structures. Providing scanned images is a safe and clean way of protecting the drawings and fortunately ADEC Preview are experts in the process of digitising historic material. In the past the ADEC Preview team has scanned material that is several hundred years old thus preserving the content in perpetuity.
In this case Jenny Chilcot and John Duffy were impressed with ADEC Preview’s response and expertise and of the understanding that their appointed Account Manager had of the project. They have been delighted with the results and intend to consider more scanning of historic material in the future.
