B Building Studio Expansion

The Corning Museum of Glass (CMOG) B Building Studio Expansion will more than double the available space – from 24,000 to 60,000 SF – for glassmaking programs for artists and students and popular attractions, such as Make Your Own Glass, for museum visitors. LeChase is utilizing Lean principles on the project – starting with pull planning sessions that engage stakeholders in collectively defining project milestones and the sequence of work. When completed, the space will house the first large-scale kiln casting facility in North America as well as leading-edge glassmaking technologies, an artist-in-resident center, and a two-year certificate program called The Glassmaking Institute. It will also double the Make Your Own Glass workshop capacity.
