Yale Peabody Museum Renovation

New Haven, CT

GMS provided structural engineering services for the expansion and renovation of Yale Peabody Museum.  The project includes a four-story 65,000 sf infill addition to the existing museum consisting of a gateway terrace, galleries, study spaces, three story atrium, glass tower, and a new 4,400 sf loading pavilion with a planted green roof, as well as extensive modifications to the existing historic structure built in 1925.

In addition, GMS worked on smaller renovations to portions of the Kline Geology Building and the Environmental Science Center and replaced a pedestrian bridge linking the museum to the Kline Geology Building. Design work began in 2018, with construction starting in late 2020. The Museum re-opened in March 2024.
