Our Project Team
A dedicated and passionate leadership team of board and staff are leading the organization onto the national stage. Along with a team of experts, advisors, consultants and volunteers, the board is guiding the architectural, exhibit design and building processes, as well as a fundraising campaign of up to $10M to fund the full scope of the project. A Fundraising Cabinet with members and advisors spanning the country is seeking support from donors nationwide.

Integrated Project Delivery (IPD)
The new build will take an Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) approach where people, systems, business structures and practices are integrated into a concurrent process, from design to fabrication and construction, in order to maximize efficiency and accelerate schedules. IPD is a relatively new process that takes a values-based approach to construction, assembling key project partners to the table from the start to work simultaneously to design, plan and execute together.
