City of St. Paul - Gorilla Forest - Como Park and Conservatory
The Gorilla Forest habitat included the construction of a major outdoor exhibit for the gorillas where they can play, climb, forage and display their extraordinary family and social dynamics to the public in landscape immersive natural habitats. The larger space of 10,000 square feet is approximately two and half times larger the former outdoor space and the smaller space of 2,000 square feet is used for mothers with babies.
CPMI was the Agency Construction Manager for preconstruction and construction. We provided a full-time manager on site during construction. This project was constructed in the middle of an operating facility where special attention and coordination of construction activities and public events were critical.
