Parkersburg Children's Museum
Mills Group is working with the owner of the building and Downtown PKB on the master planning and conceptual design for adaptive reuse of an existing historic building for a new Children’s Museum in downtown Parkersburg, WV. Design services included an initial building survey and code analysis, master planning, and conceptual design.
The master plan includes the addition of an accessible entrance, new restrooms, and a new elevator to provide access to all levels of the building, and upgrades to building systems as necessary to bring the building up to current standards for use as a children’s museum. Interior renovations are planned take advantage of the buildings large open interior spaces and showcase the existing materials and detailing as much as possible, while transforming the spaces into fun and engaging learning spaces for children.
As the project continues, Mills Group will coordinate with structural, mechanical, electrical, and museum design consultants to create construction documents to complete the multi-phase project.
