For this project, we built the Penguin Exhibit at Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies.
Rare Construction Conditions
We had a very tight schedule and had to work while the facility was open to the public which often required we work at night. Construction was during the winter creating weather concerns impacting travel and delivery, as well as, a demand for heaters, lots of heaters.
The penguins had to be our focus throughout construction. Any chemical substance that came in contact with the water could kill the penguins. They were scheduled to be delivered and their home needed to be ready that day.
