Measurable Outcome(s)

The project was monitored and evaluated throughout implementation. The short-term expectation that the contractor's work would be completed by the end of April and that the contractor's work would meet accepted standards was successfully accomplished.

This project was completed prior to the 2017 museum season opening. We fully expect the intermediate goals of positive visitor feedback will be met with the brighter and improved visual lines. In current preparations for 2017 exhibits, the new lighting is already obviously better accommodating the changing of museum exhibits from last year's exhibits to the set-up of 2017 exhibits.

Although it is too early to measure energy consumption changes, the use of the LED lighting and occupancy sensors will reduce electricity costs and also better protect and preserve the museum's collections and loaned artifacts.
