The buildings required a sophisticated renovation to create a secure environment for the collection, respect the integrity of the structures and appeal aesthetically to museum visitors.
KNBA’s understanding of the challenges and complexity of museum projects was critical in the development of the Frazier. Extensive evaluations of the structures were conducted to ensure they could support the museum weight load. Solutions to issues ranging from climate control to seismic events, exhibit layout, lighting and security were major concerns. KNBA led the effort with a varied team of consultants to retro-fit the existing structures to accommodate museum standards and integrate all the functional systems.
