The Norton Museum of Art in West Palm Beach has been the pillar of cultural and art education and development in Palm Beach County since 1941, providing the community with a variety of programs and exhibitions, housing collections of over 7000 works from Europe, China and America. As this community and the museum’s collection has grown over the years expansion and redesign plans got propelled, to allow the museum to truly function as the art center that belongs to everyone. The design and construction was awarded to prominent firms outside of Palm Beach County with the only exception of a local entity, Engenuity Group, Inc.
We provided civil engineering services and were the sole providers of all land surveying and platting services. Following the boundary and topographic survey scope, our engineering team prepared demolition plans, roadway improvement plans, water and sewer distribution plans, as well as paving, grading and drainage plans. Our engineering department provided permitting phase services which involved applications to a variety of agencies, then administered the construction phase for the entire project development.
Our team endured numerous challenges over the duration of the construction, due to its phasing and accelerated construction schedule, yet our certified Small Business Entity of 28 employees strive to extend the same unparalleled professionalism and client service that our customers have been receiving for over 40 years.
This the stunning facility that we helped build exemplifies the scope and magnitude of civil and professional dedication and the blending of a historic setting with an innovative, modern design. The New Norton Museum is a triumphant display of humanity, generosity, professionalism and creativity.
