Phased Renovations Support Ever-Evolving Exhibits

Along with managing a highly collaborative team, B&F paid special attention to the integration of temperature and humidity controls, working diligently with engineers and equipment manufacturers to meet critical HVAC requirements. We also oversaw the renovations that modernized the "Freedom Rising" AV experience in the Sidney Kimmel Theater, and we managed crucial back-of-house projects including a chiller replacement and HVAC upgrades to ensure the preservation of important historical documents.
