Client: Location: Bechtel National Planetarium Columbia Basin Colllege, Pasco WA
Project Description: In 2010, we began exploring with CBC the vision of placing a Planetarium on its main campus. We reviewed several sites, discussing benefits and cost impacts. We came to the conclusion that the ideal placement and most cost effective solution was to add the Planetarium onto a 
small classroom facility closest to the Moore Observatory. CBC’s Planetarium contains state-of-the art sound and visual equipment to provide viewers a high definition show in a 36-foot panoramic viewing dome. Viewers experience life-like high definition images and sounds. The Planetarium is intended to help share the wonder of science, technology, and the universe.
