Nauticus Maritime Discovery Center

Nauticus Maritime Discovery Center

Location: Norfolk, Virginia
Industry: Historic Rehabilitation

Project Overview

Nauticus is a maritime discovery center located along the waterfront in downtown Norfolk, VA that uses the museum, Battleship Wisconsin, sailing center, and Schooner Virginia to educate the public on the maritime environment, industry, and the military. 

Nauticus embarked on its phase II renovation project to enhance its interior spaces. The project aimed at upgrading electrical and mechanical systems, conducting extensive painting and drywall repairs, installing a new ticket booth, and creating new exhibit areas to enrich visitor experiences. Anchor Scaffolding, an ECRS company was selected as the access solutions provider for this project.

There were many unique challenges associated with this project, requiring meticulous planning and execution: 

90-foot-tall atrium: The atrium’s intricate design required customized scaffolding to be erected to access various points for maintenance, repairs, and renovations.
People Mover: To ensure safety and accessibility during the renovation process, scaffolding was strategically placed over and around the “People Mover,” a moving sidewalk connecting different floors of the museum.
New exhibit areas: New exhibit areas were constructed, necessitating scaffolding for the installation of walls and ceilings. The scaffold systems provided a secure platform for workers to carry out their tasks efficiently and safely.
