SMPS DC schedules Folger Shakespeare Library hard hat site tour

The Society for Marketing Professional Services (SMPS) DC chapter has scheduled a hard-hat tour of the Folger Shakespeare Library on April 25.

Gilbane is the construction manager for the renovation and below-grade expansion of the structure, steps away from the Supreme Court on Capitol Hill. “This research and performing arts venue, built in 1932, houses the largest Shakespeare collection in the world,” the association says in its event description.

“The project includes a complex below-grade one-story addition and extensive existing structure and landscaping alterations. The renovations will yield two new exhibition halls, expanded lobbies, a new gift shop, an education laboratory, and additional staff space. Visitors will enter a new 12,000-sq. ft. public pavilion under the Folger’s front lawn through large, welcoming, and fully accessible plazas on both the east- and west-facing sides of the building.

Visitors need to have personal protective equipment including a hard hat, vest, steel-toed boots, and safety glasses.

Registration closes on April 24, and you need to reserve in advance to participate.  Rates depend on whether you are a SMPS member, with special discounts some qualifying members.

For more details and to register, visit the SMPS-DC site.
