PROJECT OVERVIEW

Prairie Forge Group, working alongside Split Rock Studios (the exhibit designer/fabricator), provided design, engineering, and construction management services for the renovation of the Byron Jarrett Prairie Center Museum. Updating the exhibit space consisted of a new theater with engineered lighting and audio/visual systems, interactive exhibits, and flooring patterns to guide the visitor through the space. PFG was challenged with cost control, and was required to safely plan and schedule all construction work to take place in an occupied, operational facility.
