Courtney Williams and Michael Shoriak of Cypress Building Conservation and Robby Cangelosi of Koch and Wilson Architects have been working on a major HVAC retrofit for the Hermann-Grima House, one of News Orleans most significant house museums. The project carefully studied the best approach to sensitively install new equipment in the historic structure with minimal destruction to provide optimal performance balancing preservation of the museum collections and human comfort. It is hoped that the results will serve as a model for other museums.
