The Southwest Museum of the American Indian

The Southwest Museum of the American Indian project consisted of:

  • Providing FEMA disaster assistance consulting services to assist client with the preparation, submission and negotiation of their claim for seismic repair funding, as well as collection/artifact, move/storage costs
  • Limited construction management and project management services related to the approval FEMA-funded repair scope of work

Project Highlights:

  • The 1994 Northridge earthquake caused damage to three of the museum’s structures, including the historic main museum, the Braun Research library and the Casa de Adobe. While repairs to the library and Casa de Adobe were completed soon after the earthquake, damage to the main museum proved to be a challenge and required vital structural renovations.
  • The repair work to the Caracol Tower included installing a new roof and drain system, re-plastering the exterior and interior surfaces, sealing cracks using epoxy injection and applying a new coat of paint.
