The Colby Museum of Art offers 38,000 sq ft of exhibition space within a building built over many decades.  In 2007, Peter and Paula Lunder donated their personal art collection of over 500 works of art to the college.  Needing space to house this remarkable collection, Colby College sought to build the Alfond-Lunder Family Pavilion, named in recognition of a gift from the Harold Alfond Foundation and the partnership and friendship between Harold Alfond and Peter Lunder. SGH provided building enclosure consulting services for the 26,000 sq ft addition that includes 10,000 sq ft of exhibition space, studios, study and office space, and art storage.
