McCarthy Completes Holocaust Museum Houston, Lester and Sue Smith Campus
McCarthy Building Companies, Inc. has completed construction on the Holocaust Museum Houston, Lester and Sue Smith Campus. The extensive demolition and expansion project more than doubles the building’s original size from 21,000 square feet to 57,000 square feet, making the museum the fourth-largest Holocaust museum in the United States. Construction on the structurally complex building began fall 2017.
“The Holocaust Museum Houston project is very unique in that nearly the entirety of the exterior structure and interiors were demolished, replacing it with essentially four structures, while protecting irreplaceable artifacts,” said Jim Stevenson, McCarthy Houston Division President. “Further, there’s symbolism in almost every design component and it affects not only the final product, but it also affects the way we build it. McCarthy was proactive during the design phase to ensure the finished museum would be both a functional and unique space that educated and inspired visitors.”
