Fantasyland Expansion


New Fantasyland Overview Concept Art

My team at Morris Architects worked on a complex phased expansion including a new dark ride attraction Journey of the Little Mermaid; a re-skin of the existing Barnstormer coaster; an updated/remodeled Train Station, and renovated Storybook Circus tents with themed character meet and greet stations, retail space, and edible treats service.  In April 2009 I was seconded to WDI Creative and temporarily relocated to Glendale, CA for 5 months.  I was assigned to WDI’s Mermaid Creative team as that attraction evolved from blue sky, through feasibility and schematic design.  Upon return to Orlando, I was a member of the Hoar/Morris design build team preparing final Mermaid construction drawings.  In late 2010 I moved to the WDW site in support of all construction of the Hoar/Morris scope.  From the beginning, I served as Project BIM Coordinator facilitating design coordination meetings and clash detection with the design consultants, design assist sub-contractors and WDI creative.  I continued to serve as BIM Coordinator on site in addition to traditional CA duties.  I also served as Project BIM Coordinator for Storybook Circus during CA.  I handled visual presentations for all of the Fantasyland projects using lighting studies, 3d animation, infographics, and game engine visualization.
