Cornell Plantations Welcome Center

Project Info

Name: Brian C. Nevin Plantations Welcome Center

Client: Cornell University

Location: Ithaca, New York

Project Summary

When Cornell University’s Plantations botanical gardens was in need of a learning and welcome center that could accommodate the growing number of visitors each year, Welliver managed the construction of a new center in only 18 months. Plantations welcomes thousands of secondary and college students and visitors yearly and thus, needed a single site that they could educate visitors on their history, science and property. The Brian C. Nevin Plantations Welcome Center, completed in Fall 2010, complies with the USGBC Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold certification standards. Welliver managed the project and the sustainable aspects of the build and applied for the project’s certification. The center features a two-story atrium and lobby, Plantations exhibits created by world-renowned Hadley Exhibits, public facilities, reception area, a café and small gift shop. To expand the Plantation’s educational programs offered, the Center has a 100+ seat classroom and a conference room on the second floor.
