American Museum of Natural History Gilder Center

In 2023, the American Museum of Natural History opened the new Richard Gilder Center for Science, Education and Innovation, a five-story, 190,000-gross-square-foot addition to the museum. The project includes an additional 40,000 gross square feet of renovations to existing space. AKRF prepared the Environmental Impact Statement pursuant to CEQR, including operational and construction noise analyses and assisting the museum with planning space allocation during construction by providing detailed predictions of construction noise and vibration effects. We also prepared a pedestrian safety assessment and implementation plan, performed site assessment/remediation services, and provided construction monitoring in conformance with the Remedial Action Plan.

In Their Words

“It is an especially important civic moment in the life of our great city. I hope you have an enormous sense of pride and purpose as we initially begin construction for what quite simply will be a spectacular and vitally important resource for science and education.” – Ellen Futter, Museum President
