HG Design was engaged to provide civil engineering and landscape architecture services for the Frontier Museum of Virginia. The museum is comprised of both indoor and outdoor exhibits with interpreters providing a storytelling experience for guests.
The site consists of rolling hills with forested areas and grass meadows depicting historic farmsteads. HG was responsible for maintaining the farmstead culture while integrating a completely new pedestrian and vehicular circulation systems, a new 30,000 sf Crossing Gallery and a large outdoor Event Lawn while maintaining the thematic character of the facility.
HG prepared concept development through construction documentation and administration. Unique to the museum is the creation of wildflower meadows, a water feature, themed entry plaza and guest drop-off area, an outdoor event space and a large junction where Old World meets New World. In addition, we are designing a new 375 space parking lot, maintenance complex and office areas, food truck and cart rental facility adjacent to the Event Lawn, and stormwater management facilities inclusive of BMPs, streams tying into existing wetlands, ponds and waters.
