2005 Special Award Commercial Insurance Restoration

In August of 2004, the Smithsonian Institute’s National Museum of American History in Washington, D.C. experienced catastrophic water damage from a broken fire sprinkler pipe. Over 20,000 gallons of water poured into the Price of Freedom exhibit area flooding over 130,000 square feet of the museum. The scope of work included drying of the water damaged areas, replacement of all damaged drywall, specialty finishes and displays. Several creative solutions were required for this project because of the massive areas that were flooded, the unique construction of the exhibits and the priceless nature of the museum artifacts. The first creative solution involved designing a temporary flexible duct system to distribute drying air from a tractor-trailer mounted 10,000 CFM desiccant dehumidifier to the water damaged areas. This provided 0% relative humidity air to dry out the wet areas. There also had to be expedited coordination of artisans and workers involved in the reconstruction of the damaged exhibits. An expedited schedule allowed the project to be completed in less than two months.
