The Star-Spangled Banner Flag House | Restoration
This project included the preconstruction and construction of a 12,000 SF two-story visitors center—a steel bearing structure with a masonry envelope. The project was completed in less than a year, without restricting the museum’s regular operations and school tours. The centerpiece of the structure is a unique, two-story glass curtain wall replicating the original, national anthem inspiring, Fort McHenry flag. The new Visitors Center was completed immediately adjacent to the historic flaghouse, which is on the National Register of Historic places. All adjacent work had to be staged carefully around the historic site.
