Special Design Features/Comments: This project required the complete rehabilitation of the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory (built in 1900), which was designed by Lord & Burnham. This New York City landmark was renovated including the following work: the complete re-glazing of the greenhouses, computerized operations for windows and venting energy management and misting systems, and exhibition design and installation. A completely new exhibitions design was phased into the completion of the construction work. The project included a large lead paint containment contract.
The Conservatory is considered the grandest in the U.S.A.
SHA was the main liaison on behalf of the Owner 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 carried out using a public/private initiative.
