The renovation project consists of new geology and zoology exhibits, a new science lab, a new elevator, as well as the renovation of the live animal exhibit, classroom, restrooms, first floor lobby, and concession area. Sustainable design techniques will be implemented as per the grant requirements.
Grant funding will also be used to seismically upgrade those portions of the facility and bring them up to ADA standards. The interior renovation will include the consolidation, and rearrangement, of interior rooms and ADA compliance measures. A concession area will be added to allow visitors to extend their stay at the facility. Mechanical, plumbing and electrical, including low voltage systems, will be modernized. Interior equipment, materials and finishes will be upgraded. Any changes to the building exterior will be historically sensitive.
This project is funded by a grant from the California State Parks, Nature Education Facilities Program ($5,477,193) and an in-kind gift from the Randall Museum Friends ($130,000).
