Scope of Work

MSI was hired to retrofit the Springfield Missouri Art Museum buildings mechanical. The HVAC system was extremely inefficient and outdated. The challenge was working within short windows in order to reduce temperature and humidity fluctuations that could have damaged the art. One of the ways we accomplished this was to first install a new air handling unit to service the art gallery along with a steam humidifier to ensure the artwork remained at an appropriate humidity level. MSI was also hired to them replace and remodel the ceiling that we removed during the mechanical phase of this project.
