Port Discovery Children’s Museum | Renovation Phase I Roof Replacement and Envelope Repairs
Lewis Contractors served as Construction Manager-at-Risk providing preconstruction and construction services for a multi-phase historic restoration/renovation of the Port Discovery Children’s Museum, a nonprofit children’s museum located in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor.
In Phase I, Lewis completed a complete roof replacement, upgraded the entry doors, and completed a thorough forensic investigation for a building envelope restoration. Forensics concluded with an existing conditions report outlining a means and methods approach to masonry repointing and terra cotta restoration on the facade of the 106-year-old historic Fish Market building. This restoration work to the building’s exterior will be completed in Phase III. All work was been completed around the museum’s regularly scheduled operational hours with the facility remaining open to the public throughout construction.
