A new identifiable entry for the Arizona Science Center enhances the access to the lower level lobby from the street level for visitors to the Center. This project involved remodeling the current facility to provide a comprehensive solution to the main entrance that enhances exterior accessibility and compliance issues, ensures safe school bus drop-off zones, and provide adequate space to safely accommodate large groups. The 9,000 sf project scope included ADA and code compliance, renovating the main entrance and bus drop-off zones and remodeling exterior and lobby spaces.
