Museum, Library and Cultural

At WSP USA, we specialize in developing complex designs in highly sensitive environments. Few environments are more critical than those within a gallery, museum, library or performing arts space.

National Museum of African American History and Culture - (c) Smithsonian Institute/NMAAHCEngineering solutions have a significant impact on both the ultimate long-term success of a museum facility - new structures are designed to last more than three generations - and the quality of the museum experience. We believe the role of structural, mechanical, electrical and plumbing engineers on these projects is to develop solutions that allow changes and improvements to the spaces over time without major disruptions caused by the engineering systems. 

We understand the importance of preserving historical artifacts, while also considering the aesthetic value that each individual environment offers. Our knowledge of temperature-controlled environments and preservation techniques has earned us many unique opportunities with internationally renowned institutions.

Our designers have an appreciation of award-winning buildings and how they may be built to the highest standards, using best-practice methods of construction. Our record of delivering outstanding cultural buildings worldwide is a testament to our focus on adding real value by providing both innovative and common sense solutions. 

We draw from global experience to design some of the world's most iconic cultural buildings. Our teams work together across disciplines to listen to our clients and serve their project goals. We are dedicated to the highest standards of professional service and quality assurance. In designing cultural spaces, we focus our passion for the protection of priceless cultural artifacts and enjoyment of various performing arts and utilize it to create world-class buildings.
