The Morgan Library & Museum - McKim Building Exterior Restoration & Greenspace

Sciame was the Construction Manager responsible for the exterior restoration of the historic McKim Building at the Morgan Library & Museum. The scope of work included upgrades to the Greenspace area surrounding the McKim Building.

The exterior restoration of the 1906 McKim Building required high quality masonry conservation work (cleaning, repairing, etc.). The project also consisted of the restoration and masonry work of the building’s exterior loggia steps, retaining wall, sidewalk and fence posts. The bronze fence protecting the building and Greenspace was also restored. Select demolition took place for the removal and replacement of the existing roof. Temporary protection, including waterproofing and insulation, was provided during roofing operations. The protection of the building, building materials and building components were critical throughout the duration of the project to prevent any damage or staining to the building’s historic and artistic value. Furthermore, from the start of construction through completion, the Morgan Library & Museum continued their operations uninterrupted.

Improvements to the Greenspace surrounding the McKim building consisted of waterproofing below the new stone and gravel paved areas. In addition, modifications to the existing exterior handicapped ramps, including foundation work, irrigation system and water supply, site drainage, new tree pits, new paving and planting, instillation of historic artifacts and new exterior lighting design.
