TCT prepared an integral component of a Congressional Report to conserve and restore the frescos, fine arts and decorative paint in these richly painted, historic Senate hallways. First painted in the 1850s by Italian artist and designer Constantino Brumidi, the Brumidi Corridors are among the most artistically ornate and creatively decorated hallways in our nation.
As an on-call estimator for the Architect of the Capitol, TCT provided cost estimating and scheduling services as the keystone of the 5-year plan report presented to Congress for review. Due to the dynamic and 24/7 nature of the Senate, the restoration program was a complex and phased plan spanning five years. Our challenge was to understand the requirements specific to fine art restoration and the accommodations required by a working building community while minimizing and managing the impact on both schedule and cost.
