Old Faithful Visitor Education Center
The 25,795 sq. ft. Old Faithful Visitor Education Center was designed to accommodate an anticipated 1,300,000 visitors per year. The sweeping views to Old Faithful Geyser, Upper Geyser Basin and Geyser Hill were carefully studied and prescribed through the design for maximum visitor enjoyment.
CTA Structural provided the framing and connection design for the new Old Faithful Visitor Center. The steel structure was designed with a special concentric brace frame system to resist the high seismic force potential that is present in the Old Faithful and Yellowstone National Park area. The structure featured a cold roof system as well as several large span trusses to create large open spaces in the Visitor Center lobby.
