"EDM faced and met significant challenges in designing the mechanical and electrical system for this "state-of-the-art" museum, which includes two theaters and houses and displays the State of Illinois' priceless collection of Lincoln artifacts and exhibits.  EDM displayed outstanding innovation and cooperation in meeting needs of historians, museum curators and the general public by creating an environment that could satisfy the requirements of all.  When last minute challenges were presented, EDM met and exceeded our expectations.  It has been an honor and my pleasure to participate in such great project with such fine people as the staff at EDM."
