A multi-functional two story structure providing two elevators to allow convenient ADA access to upper and lower level Wild Animal Park exhibits as well as increase revenue generating opportunities from an added gift shop, snack bar, telescope viewing into open air Africa field exhibits, and providing a unique space for special event hosting. A misting system was added to improve guest experience during summer attendance.
Unique Aspect: Project was located at a major intersection of the park with a high traffic area. An entire portion of the project was added with no increase in schedule. Due to the elevator loading and unloading on opposite sides it was not possible to maintain air-conditioning in the elevator cabs so the entire elevator shaft was air-conditioned to provide a comfortable guest experience.
