Polar Bear Odyssey Como Park Zoo and Conservatory

The Polar Bear Odyssey project consisted of the demolition of existing bear dens and exhibits, the construction of four new buildings, and the development of two new exhibits. The exhibits include three pools and connecting streams, rockwork, barrier fencing, and landscaping. CPMI provided a full-time manager on-site during construction, allowing for keen observation, which resulted in cost-saving design alternatives. No Zoo or Conservatory scheduled events were disrupted due to construction. CPMI questioned the foundation design of the Lodge, we suggested view window changes and worked with the designers on an alternative design for the barrier fence to save over $1,000,000.
