This LEED version 4 Operations and Maintenance program will center on the Mount Rushmore Concessions Building. A major renovation, undertaken by Park Concessionaire Xanterra Parks and Resorts, will be completed in 2017, paving the way for the O&M project on the 44,498 square foot building.  

The project will contain a new dining hall, named Carver's Cafe, planned to have  "scatter system" dining  replacing the cafeteria-style common to the national parks. The renovated building will also house a gift shop, warehouse space, and offices.
