SAN FRANCISCO MUSEUM OF MODERN ART
SFMOMA's new building, the largest of its kind in the U.S., blends art and science to provide an environment that delights patrons while protecting priceless collections.
SFMOMA's Expansion project added a new 10-story tower and renovated the existing museum building. The combined facility's 145,000 square feet of interior gallery space make SFMOMA the largest modern art museum in the country. Enovity supported SFMOMA with LEED commissioning of the project, including the HVAC, controls, lighting, domestic hot water, emergency power, landscape irrigation, and smoke control systems.
Unifying the new tower with the existing museum building required some creative design thinking. Exceptional collaboration between the mechanical engineer, the controls contractor, the museum's Chief Engineer, and Enovity's commissioning team—from the design phase through construction and into occupancy—was the key to delivering a HVAC system that meets the museum's strict environment control requirements while using substantially less energy than a traditional museum.
Other unique features of the project include:
The new SFMOMA opened to the public on May 14, 2016, and is on track to earn LEED Gold.
