HSU was selected as the prime contractor on the renovation of the museum’s third floor outer-ring galleries. The project was a complete renovation and reinstallation of the galleries, featuring state-of-the-art, energy-efficient lighting, innovative specialty flooring and a restoration of the walls and ceiling to architect Gordon Bunshaft’s original spacious design. The project was undertaken in conjunction with the museum’s 40th anniversary celebration, and created a platform for the museum to efficiently and effectively display its works for years to come.
