Soon after, the client engaged us to manage the design and construction of their latest expansion: a new museum building designed by Thomas Phifer and Partners. In addition to managing the design and construction team, MGAC is providing overall project management, including budgeting, reporting, oversight of legal entitlements, procurement strategies, and schedule management.

The picturesque location that served as inspiration for the architecture and landscape design also presented specific challenges for the development team – including lack of access to appropriate infrastructure and concerns about the expanded museum’s impact on the local community. In addition to building community support for the project, we also secured county approvals for reorienting utilities, reinforcing local bridges to handle construction materials, and adding acreage to the landscape.
– but also extended to how it operates. The client engaged the services of our Integrated Building Technologies team to design, procure, and implement fully integrated building systems that are controlled from the palm of your hand. From an iPad, Glenstone’s facility managers will monitor and maintain temperature, light, and traffic throughout the museum to ensure the building is operating sustainably and optimally.
A SEAMLESS BLEND OF ART, ARCHITECTURE, & LANDSCAPE
With the completion of the museum expansion, Glenstone will strengthen its commitment to the public – and quadruple its exhibit space – offering free, intimate access to contemporary art, world-class architecture, and serene landscapes living in harmony.
