SPRINGBOARD and Overton Associates to Collaborate on New Railroad Museum
Springboard’s Museum Architecture Team (M.A.T.) won a commission to design a new Railroad Museum and Festival Hall in Elkins, West Virginia. Winning over eight other multi-disciplinary teams, Springboard’s partners include Overton & Associates (Design/Build), R.W.Larson Associates (Architecture), and Schultz & Williams (Market Feasibility/Fundraising).
This Randolph County Development Authority project will be composed of a multi-use complex located on the site of the historic Western Maryland Railroad Roundhouse and will be connected to a 100 mile long, state-owned railroad line. The Mountain State Forest Festival will host its annual festival in a new related Festival Hall that will be designed to attract trade shows and conventions to Elkins.
The Conceptual Design and Project Feasibility process begins in June, 2009, and will be completed by September.
