Milwaukee Art Museum Boasts Radiant Heat

MILWAUKEE, WI — A five-year 140,000-sq-ft expansion to the Milwaukee Art Museum, designed by famed architect Santiago Calatrava, will include radiant floor heating, planned to keep visitors warm during Wisconsin’s long winters. The system was necessitated by the use of buffed, marble flooring and a cathedral-like ceiling made of glass.

Approximately 25,000 feet of cross-linked polyethylene barrier piping, supplied by REHAU Inc. of Leesburg, VA, was used for the project. The installation was completed by REHAU’s heating and plumbing group and Rundle-Spence Manufacturing Co., a plumbing, heating, and industrial supply distributor and fabrication shop.
