Roto Selected to Create Future Science Center in Northern Virginia
Roto is pleased to announce that it has been chosen as the design-build partner by the Children’s Science Center and the Science Museum of Virginia to work on the new project, along with design firm HGA. Following the Roto-led master plan, Roto went on to win the competitive bid process of the remaining design-build work contingent upon a $75 million capital campaign to raise funds.
The new institution will serve as an extension of the Science Museum of Virginia, to which Roto has designed and built exhibits Boost, Speed, and The Forge. The planned 70,000 square foot interactive science center is to be built on donated land in Loudoun County, Virginia. Its aim is to inspire an interest in science in the region and to make STEM subjects more accessible for all ages to explore, as well as position Northern Virginia as a technology hub.
