We provided Construction Management services in association with Santa Monica based KAA Design Group for renovating the public spaces at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. KAA’s design for the new Museum Store, a Café and Welcome Centers surround the existing plaza to create the village square. The Museum Store is located in the Hammer Building and includes interactive merchandise and is wrapped with a retail-savvy wall of clear glass. The new Welcome Centers focus ticketing, information and membership services into convenient concierge stations. Key staff relocated to Los Angeles for six months with the charge to ensure that the integrity of the design documents was upheld under the pressures of a set budget and a tight construction schedule leading up to the Museum's hosting of the traveling Picasso and Van Gogh exhibits. Our staff provided daily onsite construction management along with preparing KAA’s staff for regular project status meetings with the Museum’s executive group.
At LACMA West, we managed the $3 million interior renovation which involved linking three first-floor galleries.
