LEED Aquarium of the Pacific
Ocean Science Center
Long Beach, CA

Cost: $1.3 Million
Completed: 2011

This Design-Build project was built LEED Gold with all documentation.  The addition of approximately 1700 square feet of exhibit space using steel frame construction with a concrete over metal deck roof was designed for a future occupied dining patio. The new Ocean Science Center features an immersive exhibit area for exploring ocean phenomena and the many ways societies depend on the World Ocean. The focus of the experience is NOAA Science on a Sphere (SOS)®, a six-foot global display that combines new technology to take visitors on a journey across the world to explore the atmosphere, ocean, and continents.
