This project is a complete renovation and expansion for the Museum of Westward Expansion located in the Gateway Arch. This project includes a new glass entrance from the west side of the Gateway Arch grounds, second story addition into the museum, and interior renovations.
Kozeny-Wagner’s scope of work for this project included the new dream wall located in the main lobby of the Gateway Arch, including the displays relocated to the lobby that feature a view from the top, and technological exhibits. Within the Museum, Kozeny-Wagner coordinated and executed the storage and shipping of all the original artifacts with Pacific Studio. Kozeny-Wagner completed the interior work of the Museum of Westward Expansion, which included all drywall, flooring, final cleaning, finishes, and other items necessary for the completion of the Museum.
Kozeny-Wagner worked closely and deliberately with Pacific Studio through all stages of this project. We developed a strong relationship which allowed both parties to communicate effectively, and finish the project on time for its highly anticipated grand opening.
