Discovery World on Market
This former masonic lodge temple in Parkersburg, WV is an iconic historic building that has fallen out of use in recent years.
That is until a private developer with a vision for adaptive reuse and a passion for serv-ing children of his community came up with the idea to reuse the shell of the building to house “Discovery World On Market”, a new and innovative learning center for children.
Arrow’s team had to navigate the complexities of a nearly century old building to house this new facility. This required careful attention to detail and study of the existing facility drawings as well as the use of non-destructive testing to confirm the building was structurally adequate for the needs of the new facility.
– Integration with architectural and exhibit design teams
– Careful study of existing drawings and historical structural design
– Hands on coordination with construction team throughout construction
