Cost Estimating for Museum & Cultural Facilities

Our Cost Estimators know museums. We’ve provided hundreds of cost estimates for projects at more than 50 museums, including the Smithsonian Institution, the National Gallery of Art, and The Franklin Institute. Our estimates draw upon our deep experience with the construction market and the types of specialized systems involved in museum design. Below is a partial listing of our Museum & Cultural projects.
