Riverbanks Zoo – Seal and Sea Lion

The McKenney’s team built and installed aquatic life support systems for the Seal and Sea Lion exhibit at Riverbank Zoo and Garden, a 170-acre zoo, aquarium and botanical garden located along the Saluda River in Columbia, South Carolina. The project included HVAC, split systems, multiple fans, a misting system and all associated duct work and piping. Additionally, the new exhibit required specialized equipment to help ensure the new residents were safe and comfortable.
