IMEG structural project wins ENR Texas & Louisiana 2021 Project of the Year
The new Nancy and Rich Kinder Building at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, has won ENR Texas & Louisiana 2021 Project of the Year. Judges conferred the top award after first naming the building one of 18 Best Projects out of 120 entries.
IMEG provided structural engineering and design services for the new, 237,000-sf, three-story building, which includes 102,366-sf of exhibition space for modern and contemporary art, a 215-seat theater, restaurant and café, underground parking, and pedestrian tunnels connecting it to the museum’s existing gallery buildings and new Glassell School of Art. The structural design features a concrete perimeter and steel support for each floor and the trussed roof.
The project will now advance to compete for the title of national ENR Best Project in the cultural/worship category.
