Farnsworth Art Museum Renovation

Rockland, ME

“I can’t believe that all of this work has been done in only one week!”

- Dorothy Havey, Controller - Farnsworth Art Museum

Scope of Work

Cianbro renovated components of the Farnsworth Art Museum.

Project Details

  • Installed a new 50-foot by 50-foot ceiling — from studding to paint — in the entryway and upper gallery
  • Installed HVAC, electrical, and fire protection systems
  • Restored a section of the building foundation without any detrimental building movement
  • Performed renovations without damaging the existing historical building structure

Lean, Innovative, and Unique Project Solutions

Cianbro successfully completed this fast-track project in six days and approximately 10,000 work hours (working around the clock and on weekends) — just in time for the Museum’s grand season opening on Memorial Day weekend. This was essentially a six-day, 200-person, unscheduled project that was planned and put into motion in only one day — with no contract, prints, or plans.
