Wilson's Creek Visitor Center and Library Remodel

The Wilson’s Creek Visitor Center and Museum renovation project involved a complete remodel of the existing center, including enhanced functionality, improved HVAC systems for artifact preservation, and secure storage for rotating artifacts.

The Visitor Center and its library wing were remodeled, restrooms relocated, and additional exhibit space created. Within the Civil War Museum, Blinderman constructed 1,500 SF of extra exhibit space, providing high-quality cabinets, display cases, platforms, life-like museum figures, and audio/visual equipment.

Demolition work was carried out to create a curatorial storage and workroom within the Library Wing. The project also involved the installation of epoxy flooring, fire walls, security mesh, fire and security devices, fire doors, LED lighting, and motorized mobile storage shelving. Two Architectural Barriers Act (ABA) restrooms were relocated, and new plumbing systems installed.

The HVAC system was updated, replacing 13 individual air handling units with one unit per building. Outdated mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems were replaced, and the existing Fire Protection System was enhanced. A built-out steel and concrete addition with a glass door was constructed at the main entrance, while closed cell spray foam insulation was added to various parts of the building.

Blinderman managed the installation of a building-wide security system and self-performed all concrete and excavation work. The project scope included ADA compliance measures, such as correcting non-compliant sidewalk slopes and parking spots. Though not seeking LEED certification, the project complied with Federal Sustainability requirements. Blinderman’s experience with MEP renovations and museum quality conditions allowed for successful collaboration with HDR Inc. and SEC to address design issues and provide substantial benefits to the Park Service.
