Built in 1930, the Adler Planetarium and Astronomy Museum was the first planetarium built in the Western Hemisphere and is the oldest in existence today. McGuire Engineers designed the kitchen renovation for the Food for Thought Cafe for the Adler Planetarium. We were well suited for the project because of experience with historical buildings and our ability to put together well coordinated drawings in complex buildings.

Recently, McGuire Engineers was part of the design team that renovated their Sky Theater. The new theater is an immersive, state-of-the-art experience for visitors, including a new, 190° dome, 20 projectors powered by forty-five (45) computers and eighty-four (84) servers. When the theater was opened it was the highest resolution digital theater in the world. McGuire Engineers designed specialized cooling system for high tech equipment. They integrated all electrical and data systems with the new theater equipment, which included a multi-million dollar projector and server. The challenges included working with the city to incorporate life safety systems without detracting from the visitor’s experience.
