Site Preparation Starts on ABMC Visitor Center

hsd was delighted to see site preparation for the construction on the Netherlands American Cemetery (NEAC) and Memorial Visitor Centre recently start.

As part of our IDIQ contract with American Battle Monuments Commission, hsd has delivered the interpretative approach and design for the new Visitor Center designed by Dutch architects, KAAN Architecten.

As the Visitor Center will be positioned at a site of remembrance, hsd has developed an exhibition that balances both an engaging and informative experience, whilst being mindful of the wider visitor journey of reflection that encompasses the cemetery.

The NEAC is the only American military cemetery based in the Netherlands and honours the lives of the American fallen who served during WWII. Located in Margraten, the site is the final resting place of 8,301 individuals, with a further 1,722 names inscribed on the Walls of the Missing.
