Museum of Modern Art


After the rapid completion of an ambitious four-year, $858 million expansion project, the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) reopened in New York City in 2004. Featuring over 630,000 square-feet of additional exhibition, research, and office space, MoMA’s new campus combined with world-class conservational goals created a need for unique and efficient building management systems (BMS). TEC Systems provided just the solution.

To meet MoMA’s precise preservation and thermal requirements,TEC Systems designed and installed a direct-digital-control system utilizing Honeywell’s LonMark Certified EXCEL 5000® BMS. The BMS integrates with and regulates the central HVAC plant, INNCOM air quality regulator, and other building support systems throughout the MoMA campus. Each system is synced on a SymmetrE workstation, allowing for remarkably efficient operator use.

Since this grand re-opening, TEC Systems has continued to expand the Honeywell BMS to incorporate systems enhancements that meet and exceed all of MoMA’s needs.
