PAST PROJECT

Alan B. Shepard Discovery Center

Concord, New Hampshire

The Alan B. Shepard Discovery Center is a 34,000 square foot, 2-story addition and is the new gateway to the redefined McAuliffe Shepard Discovery Center (MSDC). The new Science center expands the function and programs of the planetarium by tripling the size of the current facility, offering much needed exhibit space, food concession, gift shop, meeting space, and support functions.

Altus developed the site design aspects of the facility while working closely with the project architect and the New Hampshire Technical Institute. Design challenges included reducing stormwater runoff, integrating sustainable design practices with the challenge of poor soil conditions, providing a safe drop-off area, and coordination with other college site development projects. The contract was under the direction of the State of NH Department of Administrative Services, Bureau of Public Works.
