Location: Baltimore, MD
Our Role: Owner’s Representative for the renovation of One West Mount Vernon Place, one of five buildings in the Walters’ interconnected complex. One West is a 19,000sf historic home with historic designation covering both the exterior and interior. Exterior work included extensive masonry restoration, new windows and a new roof. Interiors include all-new museum-level HVAC systems, a pressure-mist sprinkler system which uses 90% less water to extinguish fires, stained-glass restoration, and considerable plaster work. The exhibition includes a master-show control system, LED lighting throughout, and reinforced flooring to support cases which weigh as much as 1,900 pounds. Ancillary projects include renovation of the sunken far-eastern art gallery, the historic carriage house, and replacement of several other roofs.
Status: Completed in 2018
