We designed the MEP systems for the facility including specialty lighting and controls throughout the complex. Beyond the 75,000 square feet of exhibit space, the MIM also includes a 300 seat performance theater, conservation lab house spaces, restaurant/coffee shop, office and public areas.

The project included a 400 KVA, roof-mounted photovoltaic energy system, infrastructure for the state-of-the-art audio/visual technology in the galleries and specialized fire suppression systems. Key factors in the mechanical systems design was the design of systems that maintain constant temperature and humidity in the Exhibit Spaces and the Conservation Lab/Collection Storage.
