A Museum of Over the Road Transportation
Allentown Commercial and Industrial Development Authority (ACIDA)
This 47,000 SF facility, consisting of 41,000 SF of new construction of three galleries to exhibit antique vehicles, and 6,000 SF of renovations and alterations to the adjoining historic Arbogast & Bastian office building as an administration and visitors center, is surrounded by outside promenades, display areas and parking lots. There was a complexity of funding sources that required coordination which included federal TEA grants and RACP funding. Built on a designated brownfield site, the soils were further found to be unsuitable which meant a micropile foundation system was needed.
