Additionally, the museum features a permanent collection, including a Jersey-centric display of select artists, along with travelling collections.

Phelps Construction Group president Douglas Phelps said: “It was an honour to work with the Prudential Centre on this project and we are excited to be part of bringing Grammy music history to the east coast.”

Founded in 2007, the firm delivers pre-construction, construction management and design-build services, as well as completed various commercial, industrial and institutional projects.

Phelps also recently started construction of the Statue of Liberty Museum on Liberty Island in New York.

The museum will have sustainable features such as a green roof-scape and bird-safe glass exteriors, while materials native to the island will be used for the construction of interior and exterior spaces.

Focused on the history of the Statue of Liberty, the museum is expected to be accessible to more than 4.3 million visitors a year.
