Dewey Gottwald Center at the Science Museum of Virginia

[vc_row content_aligment="center"][vc_column][vc_column_text] The Science Museum of Virginia attracts hundreds of thousands of guests annually through exhibits, artifacts, and interactive technologies. Under the leadership of Rich Conti, the Science Museum embarked on an ambitious campaign to renovate the existing museum and expand with the addition of the Dewey Gottwald Center, a $12 million facility that offers dynamic spaces for events and meetings.   Draper Aden performed the site design for grading and drainage. Our site design included provisions for abnormal rain events, grading design for the site, and relief points to ensure that water moved around the structure, and not in it, during heavy rain events.   This project was honored by Engineering News-Record as the ENR Mid-Atlantic Best Project Winner in the Cultural/Worship category [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]...
