Project: Abbotsford Community School & Public Library

Re: Services provided by Nansen Group for build of Abbotsford Community Library Planning a new library can be a daunting task, and choosing the correct amount and the right kind of shelving is one of the top priorities. It was a great support to be able to work with Carl Heywood and the team from Nansen Group in making decisions about a number of aspects of furnishing and equipping the Abbotsford Community Library which opened in November 2012.

Their help was especially critical when it came choosing shelving as we were moving the collection from the previous building plus adding many new titles. I found that the Nansen Group team provided professional and knowledgeable assistance at each stage of the project which included design, coordination and consultation right through to installation. I was especially impressed by the level of attention paid to getting the shelving just right after the initial installation as there are many adjustments and corrections needed to finish properly.

We have been very happy with the MJ shelving which we chose in consultation with Carl Heywood – both fixed and mobile units have been very successful in terms of functionality and visual appeal.

I would recommend Nansen Group services to any library.

Your sincerely, Hilary Russell

Project: HALIFAX CENTRAL LIBRARY & LUNEBURG LIBRARY

Ergoworks has successfully worked with Nansen Group with MJ Shelving on our project for Lunenburg Lifestyle Centre Library in Bridgewater Nova Scotia.

The MJ shelving was easy to work with and has created a flexible environment for the library staff. Ergoworks and our client are very pleased with the overall performance and the esthetic of the shelving.

Nansen Group has been very supportive and helpful in the specification detailing and order handling, ensuring that our project was delivered correctly and on time.

I would not hesitate to work with Nansen Group and MJ Shelving on any of my projects.

To whom it may concern, I have purchased a few items from Nansen Group. I have found them to be reliable, honest and very helpful. Just recently, one of the furniture pieces we ordered arrived damaged. Nansen Group contacted the supplier, and took care of the shipping and the replacement parts with no charge to us. I was very pleased with the customer service.

Project: VERMILION PUBLIC LIBRARY

Vermilion Public Library had the pleasure of working with the Nansen Group on a shelving project in early 2015. I would not hesitate to use the Nansen Group again for our next project. From start to finish there was excellent communication with us in ensuring our vision was achieved in the final product. I recommend the Nansen Group without reservation as capable and consummate professionals in the delivery of professional library planning.
