Fabiola Project Art (2).jpg
Project Overview: 
The Fabiola Project consists mostly of paintings and are all reproductions of a single lost 1885 painting of the saint by French artist Jean-Jacques Henner. Belgian artist, Francis Alÿs, began collecting the images in the early 1990s upon moving to Mexico City, and has since expanded with the help of friends during travels throughout the world. The collection has been showcased at the Hispanic Society of America in New York City, the LACMA in Los Angeles, CA, and the National Portrait Gallery in London. The exhibit, in Houston, is available from May 2016 through January 2018.
McLaren's Role: 
McLaren provided engineering services for the Menil Collection in Houston, TX to renovate the Byzantine Fresco Chapel in preparation for the installation of the Fabiola Project on May 21st. McLaren designed a new 25 foot high by 40 foot wide hanging wall that was built in modular sections and raised via chain motors, in order to facilitate installation without messy construction in the exhibit hall. The wall assembly that appears to float above the floor was fabricated by the Texas Scenic Company and showcases over 450 artistic works of Saint Fabiola.

470 Kent Avenue Echoscope Survey.jpg
Project Overview: 
Due to a collapsed portion of Bulkhead, McLaren was hired to perform an Echoscope Survey for the purpose of determining collapsed portions of the structure, outfall locations, pile locations and debris fields outboard of the structure.
McLaren's Role: 
McLaren prepared the Echoscope including attaching and calibrating equipment through the provision of a field survey crew. McLaren collected data along the 800 foot bulkhead. Survey data was collected in the NAD 83 horizontal coordinate system and NAVD 88 Vertical datum. Final reports, underwater images and videos were provided to the client. Specific results from the survey were utilized to quantify offshore debris, chart water depths and detail the issues with the bulkhead.
