TMG provided extensive mechanical, electrical and interior work to complete the transformation of remnants of a 19th century farm structure into the Franklin Park Performing and Visual Arts Center. The project included the design-build of a 40,000-gallon water storage tank, diesel 385/gpm pumping station, and a fire protection system for the 20,000 SF timber-frame facility located in the rolling hills of Loudoun County, Virginia. Work also included the construction of two restrooms, offices and the ticket counter; build-out and framing of the stage area; installing the rough-hewn timber trim and beams; installing the flooring, carpeting and exterior awnings; building a front porch and decks; building ADA-compliant seating and handrails; and installing all electrical, lighting, heating and ductwork systems, including a field of solar panels to provide passive electricity.
TMG’s project team worked closely with preservationists and green building specialists to maintain the historic integrity of the remaining structure while integrating energy-efficient systems wherever feasible. TMG also worked cooperatively with the Owner to resolve unknown/hidden issues by offering cost-effective solutions that had minimal impact on the project schedule.
