A major renovation project was completed at a cost of $10 million. The temporary exhibition galleries and a majority of the permanent collection galleries were extensively renovated. A courtyard infill addition affords added gallery space.
The HVAC systems serving the renovated spaces were upgraded. DDC controls were added to provide better temperature and humidity control and programmed control of exhibit and night lighting.
Galleries were provided with new track mounted exhibit lighting and night/emergency egress lighting. The normal and emergency electrical distribution systems were upgraded and the security system expanded for the renovation.
Planning for the New Normal
Plumbing Systems Re-Occupancy and Ongoing Operations
Your building may have been shut down these past many months due to WFH/COVID. Minimal use of your building’s water systems creates stagnant water in your plumbing system piping and equipment, which promotes the growth of Legionella and/or other biofilm-associated bacteria. This places your building occupants at risk when re-occupancy occurs. Now is the time to develop and implement a safe and effective Water Management Plan to protect your building occupants, maximizing their health and safety upon re-occupancy.
