Project: Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum
Location: Hyde Park, NY
Architect: EYP

America’s first presidential library needed code upgrades and also restoration scope to preserve historic integrity of the building and collections. This two-phased renovation project is the first since the building was originally opened to the public under Franklin D. Roosevelt’s direction in 1941.

  • Careful phasing was required to ensure visitors could have access to the 35,000 museum objects and 20 million pages of documents housed at the FDR Library during construction.
  • Scope included new drainage, plumbing, roofing, electrical, security, and fire protection systems
  • Facility systems remained fully operational during the phased, occupied renovation project
