Special Design Features/Comments: This project (the first of its kind in the United States) required the construction of two separate buildings to house the Museum of Modern Art’s world-renowned and most prestigious film collection. The continued preservation and restoration of the collection requires highly controlled environmental conditions, which were a key part of the project. Since the site partially sits on designated wetlands, we were required to engineer specialized environmental controls such as detention basins to ensure the protection needed.
Main liaison on behalf of the Museum between the design and construction teams. We had overall responsibility for the management of the time, cost, quality and administration aspects of the project.
The project was delivered under budget.
