The renovation floor plans have been released. You can download them below. (545KB PDF File) Note that this is just the finished floor plans I extracted from the 102 page construction plans, but I figured that's all anyone would be interested in. Rather than add this into my original post on this a couple of weeks ago, I decided to make a new one since few people bother to keep up with the updates once the original scrolls below the bottom of the screen.

Basically, the auditorium is going away in favor of exhibit space. The first floor becomes the YA bookstore on the west side of the building (where the current BCO is), a new Information Desk is created, and the rest of the first floor is pretty much all exhibit space. The basement will house much improved restrooms, the YA office and storage space, a new BCO, and office/break space for the seasonals who work the Info Desk. The second floor becomes office space for the Interp staff (including the webmaster, photographer, and much of the educational staff). There'll be no public access to the second floor.

The front of the building will get a new ADA ramp that affords access to the first floor (oriented to the east). The elevator inside will provide access to the basement and second floors for those with movement disabilities.

The temporary VC will be located on the parade ground where the current picnic tables are, and a temporary restroom will be located between the existing VC and the Interp Building next door to it.
