RMSC Lobby and Strasenburgh Planetarium
DGA’s Role: General Contractor
DGA Builders performed interior renovations to the historic Strasenburgh Planetarium; the project coincided with the 50th anniversary of the building’s opening.
The Strasenburgh Planetarium renovation project included: replacing carpeting and wall covering, wider chairs aisles in the Star Theater, installing a Digistar six full-dome projection system, installing new LED lighting with programmable color mixing hidden around the periphery of the 65’ dome, and upgrading the input portion of the sound system.
Outside the theater, DGA created new food and beverage service bar with custom millwork for special events in the center’s lobby, improved display lighting and electrical service, and remodeled public restrooms and main entrance for wheelchair accessibility.
DGA managed the work schedule around on-going RMSC activities with patrons and staff during the renovations. The intricate project was completed on schedule and in time for RMSC’s planned initial unveiling ceremony to the public.
