Clarke-Ford House Restoration
AltusWorks was tasked with the facility assessment and design for repairs and renovations at the Clarke-Forde House. In 2022, AltusWorks performed a thorough assessment of the building’s exterior envelope, its mechanical, engineering, and plumbing systems, and the existing accessibility conditions of the site and interior. While the museum is being re-defined to incorporate the history of the Bishop Ford family, DCASE decided to focus on restoring the exterior envelope, modify the monumental portico stairs, and mitigate condensation issues at the 2nd floor air diffusers. These renovations will protect the historic exterior and allow better access to the future programming needs of the museum while preserving the building for years to come.
