Orange County Museum of Art: A Monument to Cutting-Edge Technology

The Orange County Museum of Art (OCMA) is a stunning example of modern architecture, designed by the renowned Architectural firm Morphosis.

Completed in 2022, this 53,000 ft² building features flexible exhibition galleries and dedicated spaces for educational programs.

The interior and exterior of the building is clad with Boston Valley Terra Cotta panels that were fabricated and installed with the help of ScanTek 3D's team of professionals!

A Monument to Cutting-Edge Technology

The project, based in Orange County, California, involved a complete transformation of the existing Museum of Art. Through careful planning and execution, Morphosis managed to completely revamp the museum, creating an ambitious and beautiful design that incorporated natural light sources and open-air spaces.

An impressive skylight was installed above the main entrance to bring in additional light from the sky while still preserving the museum's historical charm. Furthermore, larger sections were created using latticework walls that allowed for smooth transitions between indoor and outdoor settings — giving visitors an unforgettable experience with each visit.

Successful Coordination Across Parties Involved

ScanTek 3D provided onsite surveying and laser scanning services to generate custom programming and layout plans for the interior and exterior Terra Cotta cladding.

Best Contracting’s certified sheet metal workers played an essential role and provided the successful management and install of over 6,000 panels with more than 100 different panel profiles.

The OCMA project was a monumental undertaking that required precise coordination between architects, engineers, contractors, and fabricators.

ScanTek 3D's team worked closely with all parties involved to ensure that the project was completed on time. Their expertise in surveying and laser scanning allowed them to provide custom programming and installation guidance for the Terra Cotta cladding which helped make this project a huge success.
