The Challenge Center at the Kroc Center

Unique interactive facility with several moving parts. Challenge accepted.

The Scope

The Challenge Center is a 20,000 SF multi-level interactive learning facility that includes experiential learning rooms, a competition arena, performance platforms, and agility training and obstacle courses. It also has a unique, space station theme to enhance each participant’s journey.

Challenges & Resolutions

The Challenge Center was one component of a very large community center facility, so RGI needed to provide a unique space that would still incorporate into the existing building. The Challenge Center was also a very untraditional project with many moving parts. The RGI team worked closely with the overall project team to create a complex and detailed museum quality design with intricate engineering features.

RGI met with the owner and developed the necessary criteria to define quality design and the functionality/constructability for such a unique project. Clear communication with the owner, as well as the other teams working on the larger project, proved key to providing the quality that the owner expected.

How The Renaissance Approach Benefited the Client

RGI provided documents for each stage of the project using the state-of-the-art BIM that described the quality control standards and the necessary process for the contractor.


The Challenge Center is a high quality interactive area that is truly an amenity to this region. It provides great outreach to the community and the client was very pleased.
