The new three-story Museum of Science is a living laboratory that invites visitors to learn about science and technology with an emphasis on South Florida’s culture and ecosystem.  The 250,000 sq ft building features a Gulf Stream Tank within the Living Core building.  Supporting over 500,000 gal of sea water, the elevated tank structure comprises an acrylic oculus to allow museum visitors to look into the tank from below.  SGH consulted on the complex formwork for the 125 ft dia. conical, cast-in-place concrete Gulf Stream Tank.
