MSU Broad Art Museum

Michigan State University had teamed up with award winning and world renowned Architect and Designer Zaha Hadid Architects to design the innovative and eccentric MSU Broad Art Museum. Barton Malow was selected as the construction manager to build this unique 46,000 square foot museum that will house a variety of modern and contemporary art as well as an outdoor sculpture garden.
RAM worked directly with Barton Malow to waterproof the entire below grade portion of the museum to ensure the job was done properly. With such a high profile building and the priceless art that would be housed in it, RAM was in charge of waterproofing the underslab of the basement, foundation walls and plaza areas to guarantee a water tight foundation.
RAM also had a contract with the metal panel contractor Zahner Company to insulate the entire building envelope (23,000 Sq. Ft.) with 4 1/2″ of Spray Polyurethane Foam Insulation. This required a great deal of coordination between other trades onsite as well as cooperation with Mother Nature. Without any issues, RAM was able to complete large areas allowing Zahner Company to follow right behind with their stainless steel metal panel system. The Broad Art Museum is slated for its grand opening in the fall of 2012.
