ATI worked with Orange County on the restoration and renovation of the Heroes Hall Veterans Museum, located at the Orange County Fairgrounds. The 4,800 sf Veterans Museum serves as the center piece of OC Fair’s history. ATI utilized the building’s original structure while ensuring it’s structurally sound and advance. The renovation design allows for plenty of natural lighting to take in the exhibits, as well as view the OC Fairgrounds from the museum. The five-sided pillar at the entrance of the Medal of Honor Plaza has a plaque on each side to commemorate World War I, World War II, Korean War, Vietnam War, and Iraq War. The plaques were commissioned in 1988 by AMVETS (American Veterans), before moving to their place at the Veterans Museum.
