The Hive: A Makerspace is over 3,000 square feet of collaborative work space in which children can use high-tech tools and real materials to design and build their own projects.
JK2 Construction was brought on to manage the complete design and renovation of the construction project. The company worked closely with the architect and Science Center team to come up with a vision for the space and make it blend seamlessly with the existing design of the building. JK2 Construction completed the demolition of the existing space and managed the build-out of new framing, drywall, carpet, and painting of the newly created Makerspace. In addition, the company worked to safely and effectively relocate mechanical, electrical, plumbing and fire safety elements while working around guests and operational constraints of the facility.
After JK2 Construction completed the interior build-out, JK2 Scenic turned the project into a functional, inviting space for children to create in. JK2 Scenic manufactured all the custom millwork for the project, including the cabinets used for storing building materials, supplies and tools. The unique hexagonal shelves, storage bins and wall art JK2 Scenic constructed for the project not only bring The Hive to life, but will also serve as inspiration to those who use the space for years to come.
The Hive, presented by the Isaacs Family, allows children 8 and up to turn their creative ideas into reality. The exhibit is now open on Level 3 of the Orlando Science Center.
“It’s appropriate that a space dedicated to creation and collaboration was completed through the cooperation of JK2 Construction and JK2 Scenic,” said Paul Holmes, JK2 Construction president and founder.
“This project was a perfect fit for us at JK2 Scenic,” said Julie Holmes, JK2 Scenic president. “The Hive is all about helping kids turn their dreams into a reality through creativity and construction, something we strive to do every day.”
JK2 Construction has spent the past 30 years working to build perfection in every project it completes. The company specializes in design-build, commercial, retail, entertainment, restaurant, industrial, amenity and time share projects.
JK2 Scenic builds dreams through custom theming, architectural millwork and specialty themed items. The company has worked with national brands in the retail, attraction, entertainment, hospitality and restaurant industries.
