Burmeister & Wain shipyard (1843 - 1996). B&W was once Denmark´s largest workplace. In its heyday, it employed more than 10.000 people. B&W was established in 1843 and after numerous bankrupcies, the shipyard closed in 1996. The work that took place at Skabelonloftet was skimming. Full size templates was made, based on the shipdrawings. A job that required plenty of space. Today you can still find the original metal templatedrawings as decoration at the loft on doors and tables. DOCUMENTARY - MEN & METAL
