Revitalization of Existing Park Facilities at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor’s Complex

This assignment consisted of two separate projects, the Guest Ticketing Entrance and the Orbiter Home—the final resting place for the last space-flown shuttle, Atlantis. The projects involved select and total demolition, infrastructure and sitework, renovation, addition, and new ground-up construction. Included were the installation of park-wide audio/visual systems, site enhancements and guest amenities, and the construction of exhibits and chiller plants. The work required heightened levels of security, sensitivity to on-going park operations, and project team coordination. This was facilitated through the implementation Building Information Modeling (BIM).
