PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

A three-story, steel-framed Center for Science & Technology

ADDITIONAL PROJECT FACTS:

  • Approximately 265,000 sq. ft.
  • Two-story reading room
  • 250-seat auditorium
  • 50’ x 50’ skylight

A three-story, 265,000-square-foot facility. The atrium serves as the centerpiece of the facility with a two-story reading room and 250-seat auditorium. At the center of the atrium is a 50’ x 50’ skylight, supported by bisecting arched trusses.
