Architecture | Building Envelope

The Fralin Museum of Art at the University of Virginia is housed in the historic Bayly Building. When leaks were discovered, potentially compromising the Museum’s substantial collection, Baskervill was called to examine the roof. Additionally, the Museum was having difficulty regulating temperature and humidity levels—crucial when dealing with art and historic artifacts—but the team soon realized that this wasn’t a mechanical issue, but a complex building envelope issue. The project was split into two phases so as not to disrupt the museum operations. The scope of work included reroofing the main portion of the building, providing energy‐compliant insulation, and air vapor barrier. The existing gutters were replaced and all non‐functioning louvers sealed. The scope also consisted of insulating existing exposed roof leaders, sealing existing windows, entrance vestibule and terrace doors. Storm windows were also installed to mitigate air infiltration.
