Orlando Science Center – The Hive: A Makerspace
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.

Scope of Work:

Noise and work hours were restricted so the guests’ experience was not affected, and the floor under construction was kept under negative pressure to contain all dust and debris.
Tower 2 – Demolition of all interior improvements to concrete structure. Provide new mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems for all 18 floors. Provide new penetrations in the existing post tension slab for the new MEP layout. Build out of all new rooms and common areas for the tower.
Universal Archway & Hardscape
Demolition of existing arch and globe construct a new and iconic entrance for Universal Studios Florida. This included the massive Universal globe, 65′ archway, the waterway hardscape between the two parks, as well as hotel access walkway connected to Universal Studios.
The main ticket office and guest travel path was just outside the jobsite fence without disruption to the guest experience. Logistics were challenging as access was shared through our jobsite with several other contractors. New mechanical, electrical and plumbing were added. Multiple situations required the expertise of our team; aerial delivery by helicopter to place specialized xenon lights on the top of the arch; unique engineering installed to create the misting surrounding the globe; custom-made, sand-cast, decorative railing procured and installed for over 1000 FT from the Universal Studios bridge to the Islands of Adventure bridge.
