RAMSA Partner Alex Lamis and Senior Associate Dennis Sagiev to Lead Tour of Museum of the American Revolution

Alexander P. Lamis, along with RAMSA Senior Associate Dennis Sagiev and representatives from the Museum of the American Revolution, structural engineer Keast and Hood, and construction manager Intech Construction, will lead a tour of the nearly completed building on May 19, 2016 as part of the AIA National Convention. The tour will highlight various aspects of building construction and planning including the history of the site, materials, coordination with donors, and the pursuit of LEED certification.

The Museum of the American Revolution, anchoring the eastern end of Independence National Historical Park, is designed to introduce visitors to the American Revolution with its extraordinary collection of historical artifacts and contemporary interpretations demonstrating the continued worldwide importance of the Revolution. The museum will provide 18,000 square feet of galleries and a theater dedicated to the exhibition of George Washington's marquee tent, one of the Museum's most dramatic holdings as well as state-of-the-art storage and conservation spaces, following best practices for sustainable museum design to target LEED Silver certification.

RAMSA Partners Robert A.M. Stern, Alexander P. Lamis, and Kevin M. Smith led the design of the building. For more information about the tour, click here.
