Mission Trails Regional Park Visitor and Interpretive Center

Project Description

The winner of Orchid Awards for all categories, this Visitor and Interpretive Center is the focal point for Mission Trails Regional Park, the largest urban park in the United States.  

The center consists of a 14,081-sq. ft. , 2-story cast-in-place building with slate veneer, as well as exposed rock, split faced masonry, glass curtain wall, and exposed architectural quality wood framing.  

The entire project includes a vast exhibit area, both inside and outside the building structure, with such features as a solstice observatory, an historic flume replication, sculpted/replicated rock work, bronze-sculpted animals, natural historic exhibits, Native American exhibits, plant and geological displays, extensive exhibit case work and furnishings, exhibit graphics, special exhibit lighting, and a computerized audio-visual media display system.  

Additionally, the structure contains several classrooms, an auditorium, ranger's office, restrooms, and a 180-degree library with 16-foot-high glazing, extensive millwork and slate finishes.  Soltek worked closely with the manufacturer of the circular curtain wall, as successful installation required precise measurements and careful procedures.
