The new Gregg Museum of Art & Design houses nearly 35,000 objects ranging from textiles and ceramics to architectural drawings and ethnographic materials. This unique and important project involves renovation of the elegant, historic former Chancellor’s residence plus a new LEED-certified addition to increase the museum’s overall accessibility and create much-needed gallery, event, storage, and office space. With a mission to exhibit, conserve, and store artifacts, the Gregg Museum also offers a wide range of educational and public programs for the community to enjoy. Outdoor spaces include a historic formal garden and patio, sculpture garden, and pedestrian walkway linking the museum to other sites of interest.
Stanford White engineered systems include power, lighting, fire alarm, site lighting, and telecommunications design. HVAC includes air handling, heat transfer, and HVAC controls design. Fire protection design includes a dry-pipe pre-action system in art storage/galleries plus a wet-pipe system in all other areas. Domestic and sanitary waste system design, roof drainage piping within and beneath the building, and natural gas piping are also provided.
