Big Yellow has updated its drawings for the future site at the corner of Washington and Main.
The 50-thousand square foot building will house a number of exhibits, including a theater inside a life size replica of a piece of CAT mining equipment.
The company says its going green while building the Center.
Its using native plants to reduce irrigation and energy-efficient lighting. It will also use solar panels on the CAT parking deck that will supply power to the Visitor Center.
Images reveal interactive touch-screens that guide visitors through CAT's history.
Customer can climb into real CAT equipment.
Visitors can even stand next to a replica of CAT's largest mining machine. The "797" stands more than 24- feet-tall. But inside the machine, there's a theatre.
The cutting-edge displays will provide an understanding of CAT's global operations.
Along with the Riverfront Museum, the visitors' center should bring up to $14 million into the city.The building will open in October of 2012.
