Guests enter the exhibit level during the grand opening of the renovated Museum at Gateway Arch National Park on July 3, 2018.IMEG Corp. provided engineering design and services for a $380 million renovation and expansion of the Museum at Gateway Arch National Park in St. Louis, which reopened to the public July 3.
IMEG’s St. Louis staff provided mechanical, electrical, and telecommunications design, along with construction administration services for the multi-year project, which added a 2,000-square-foot grand entrance facing Luther Ely Smith Square and the Historic Old Courthouse. A new three-story atrium brings natural light and openness to the subterranean museum spaces – all of which have been renovated and modernized.
The museum is designed to be approximately 20 percent more efficient than ASHRAE 90.1-2007 and is pursuing LEED Silver certification. It is one of six IMEG projects included in the Gateway Arch Park Foundation’s initiative over the last several years to improve the Arch grounds and riverfront.
