N.C. Museum of Life & Science

To accommodate the butterfly exhibit and support space, which included display areas, classrooms, and a food court, the museum was in need of an entirely new building. C.T. Wilson worked closely with the Owner and Architect to keep the project on time and within budget in a multi-prime contracting method. Other areas of the campus remained operational for the entirety of construction. Coordination was key to ensuring the safety of the public and uninterrupted operations of the client.
