West Wing Museum Building

WEST WING MUSEUM BUILDING

To ensure the security of artifacts currently on display, and in order to qualify for future high quality traveling exhibits, it was determined that the West Wing Museum needed vital upgrades to security, environmental controls, and fire and life safety systems. Utilizing architectural and engineering drawings prepared by Architectural Resources Group, (ARG), and through a careful competitive bidding process designed to find the best possible quality and price for the Mission, the Preservation Department entered into contract with selective contractors to upgrade the West Wing Building. Through proactive planning and scheduling and due to a very tight, high volume construction schedule, the West Wing Upgrade Project was more or less completely run during off hours in order to minimize impacts and to maintain a positive and safe visitors’ experience.

The West Wing Building upgrade project was completed on May 7, 2010.

The project scope of work included:
• Redesigning exterior doors and retrofitting existing windows to improve the building’s overall performance of environmental heating and cooling efficiencies
• Installing a heating ventilation air conditioning system, (HVAC), to meet current museum environmental standards
• Installation of early detection fire monitoring system
• Upgrading interior lighting systems


The total cost for the project was $159,908 and funded from the designated general preservation account.
