My Most Challenging Project: RMC and the Aberdeen Museum Fire

In the summer of 2018, the City of Aberdeen’s Museum of History experienced a catastrophic fire that affected the entire museum structure. This historic building had been used to exhibit and archive many rare and irreplaceable historical artifacts unique to the area. Approximately 41,000 square feet of valuable antiques were being stored or currently on exhibit at the museum. Two tenant spaces were also affected. The concrete and heavy timber structure was significantly compromised by the fire, and some areas remained at risk of imminent collapse. Restoration Management Company (RMC) was selected by the city of Aberdeen to engage the project. Selective demolition and temporary shoring were needed before any debris removal or contents and artifact recovery efforts could be undertaken.

The project was featured in this month’s issue of C&R Magazine. Read the full article here and be sure to subscribe to Cleaning & Restoration C&R Magazine for all of their great articles! Click the image below to read the full article!
