Boston – City Point Partners provided owner’s project management services for the MassArt Art Museum (MAAM), a winner of the Construction Management Association of America, New England Chapter Building Renovation Project of the Year award for projects greater than $20 million.
The newly renovated building is a reconstruction of the 25,275sf Bakalar and Paine Galleries within the south building at MassArt, originally constructed in 1906.
The project included developing a new more prominent, visible entrance along Huntington Avenue, and grew from a building upgrade project to a larger gut renovation requiring upgrades to several major building systems, including fire protection and mechanical systems, to create controlled gallery environments capable of supporting museum quality shows.
The MAAM project was managed under the Mass. State College Building Authority (MSCBA). City Point Partners worked closely with the MSCBA, advising with respect to the scope of work and providing owner’s project management services, cost estimates and overall project budgets, schedule overview, and performance monitoring.
A project 12 years in the making, MAAM is a free non-collecting contemporary art museum open to the public, hosting temporary exhibitions of both emerging and established artists.
