Wiegmann Associates has completed work on a museum-quality HVAC system as part of the Missouri Histocial Society’s $30 million renovation of the Soldiers Memorial Military Museum in downtown St. Louis.
The art deco museum, which opened in 1938 to honor local soldiers who died in World War I, is scheduled to reopen Nov. 3. KAI is the mechanical engineer of record and BSI Constructors is the general contractor.
Wiegmann Associates was the installing mechanical contractor for the HVAC and Delta controls system, providing design/assist services to KAI to reduce equipment costs and develop an energy-efficient system. The system is designed to improve visitor comfort and protect historical exhibits.
The museum’s lower level was refurbished as galleries, more than doubling the exhibition space. The second floor was renovated into office, assembly and meeting rooms.
