Renovation and addition to visitor area with a wow factor

Project Description


We were the prime consultant to renovate and expand the visitor area to better meet the user’s needs. The project team was organized as an association with Reich+Petch Architects and it included local subconsultants including structural, mechanical, electrical, landscape, civil, cost, theatre, and acoustic disciplines.

Aspects of the project included:

  • Multi-use auditorium with telescoping seating for 300 people
  • Increased educational capacity with classroom and multi-purpose activity spaces
  • Expanded lobby space with upside-down suspended Snowbird jet to wow visitors as they enter
  • Renovated cafe space to meet food service needs and create an inviting environment to linger
