My architectural firm would like to tour the Leopold Center. What options exist?

Some engineering and architecture groups want a more technical tour of the Leopold Center’s design and construction features than our staff and regular tour guides are able to give. If your group would like a more specialized tour of the center, we can work with you to schedule an “expert tour” led by members of our building team.
