South Florida Science Center

Schmidt Nichols acted as the lead consultant for the South Florida Science Museum's 2016-2020 major expansion which includes the Conservation Course, the Physics Forest, a splash pad, outdoor seating with a full-service concession stand and an outdoor amphitheatre all of which will one day connect to the neighbouring Palm Beach Zoo.

 

The following services were provided to accomplish these added features: due diligence analysis, Class 'B' Special Use permit approval, master site planning, landscape architecture, lease renewal with the City of West Palm Beach, coordination of an inter-local funding agreement and public representation. Throughout each phase of the project Schmidt Nichols facilitated open lines of communication between the client, the Palm Beach Zoo, and multiple municipal departments. The role Schmidt Nichols played was key in developing a master plan that would include short and long term goals, in addition to creating a LEED certified  educational park.

 

After the master plan was developed and permitted from the City of West Palm Beach, coordination took place for a  $2.4 million Inter-local Funding Agreement between Palm Beach County, the City of West Palm Beach and the South Florida Science Museum under the Recreation and Cultural Facilities Bond.   The proposed project included approximately 11,000 SF of expansion to the existing museum and renovation of approximately 3,000 SF of permanent exhibits within the current facility.
