Descriptive Entry
The Office of Facilities Services is responsible for various aspects of planning the construction and equipping of new buildings, as well as renovation and repair of existing buildings. Such efforts may range from discussions of possible space acquisitions such as the old General Post Office Building and the Patent Office Building, to testimony before Congress, to project records. These records document various projects, of which the most notable are the construction of the Sackler Gallery of Art and concomitant renovation of the Freer Gallery, the renovation of the climate and HVAC systems in the National Museum of Natural History, and planning towards construction of the National Museum of the American Indian.
