New Case Study Released Featuring Dundas Museum & Archives
Arts Build Ontario has published its newest installment of its Creative Spaces Case Study Series featuring mcCallumSather’s heritage design for the Dundas Museum & Archives.
“These in-depth case studies serve as a resource for arts and heritage organizations embarking on a capital project to learn from the successes and challenges of others in the sector,” they write as part of their introduction.
Of the lessons highlighted within the Dundas Museum & Archives project was the importance of a through business plan and strong partnerships.
As one of the rare purpose-built museums of its time, originally built in 1956, the Dundas Museum & Archives is a privately run organization whose focus is on the preservation of Dundas’ rich history. Throughout its history, it has expanded with the addition of the Heritage Designated 1848 Doctor’s office, and later the Pirie House. The 2013 renovation and addition helped to connect these heritage buildings, expanding its gallery, education, archival and rental venues.
