Orlando Science Center – The Hive: A Makerspace

Orlando Science Center – The Hive: A Makerspace

The Hive: A Makerspace is over 3,000 square feet of collaborative work space in which children can use high-tech tools and real materials to design and build their own projects.

JK2 Construction was brought on to manage the complete design and renovation of the construction project. The company worked closely with the architect and Science Center team to come up with a vision for the space and make it blend seamlessly with the existing design of the building. JK2 Construction completed the demolition of the existing space and managed the build-out of new framing, drywall, carpet, and painting of the newly created Makerspace.  In addition, the company worked to safely and effectively relocate mechanical, electrical, plumbing and fire safety elements while working around guests and operational constraints of the facility.
