Challenge

Over 75,000 visitors pass through the museum every year. Located on the outside of the building is a moat that was used to cool the building when it was built. There is a 20 foot drop that could seriously injure a visitor if they were to fall in it. A fence with a locked gate needs to be installed for safety and to prevent any accidents.

Solution

A locked gate and fencing will secure the moat area and prevent visitors from becoming injured.

Long-Term Impact

Increase safety for over 75,000 visitors to the building each year.
