On Winning a Midwest Construction - Best of 2009: Project of the Year Award
Midwest Construction used their December 2009 publication to honor their Project of the Year Award winners. Pentegra Systems' client, The Art Institute of Chicago took home the Project of the Year Award in the Cultural category for its Modern Wing Addition and Nichols Bridgeway projects.

Since then, the museum has undergone extensive additions and renovations, the most extensive being the new Modern Wing addition. At 264,000 square feet, the Modern Wing addition increased the size of The Art Institute by 33% to approximately one million square feet, making it the second largest art museum in the United States.
The Art Institute's Modern Wing employs the latest in audio visual technology. Pentegra Systems was responsible for the integration of the AV systems throughout The Modern Wing. The Ryan Education Center, The Kenneth and Anne Griffin Court, The Alexandra and John Nichols Board of Trustees Suite, and The Howard and Donna Stone Gallery all required state-of-the-art AV systems for multimedia presentations, digital signage, telepresence and sound reinforcement.
Pentegra Systems is proud to have contributed to the completion of this project; as one of many subcontractors involved in this monumental project, Pentegra would like to congratulate all of the involved parties on a job well done. With its commitment to growing and evolving much like the art contained within, The Art Institute and its Modern Wing will remain at the forefront of Chicago's cultural scene for many years to come.
