McKenney’s, Inc. Participates in the Renovation of Sea Lion Exhibit at Georgia Aquarium

Online PR News – 22-June-2016 – Atlanta, GA – McKenney’s, Inc., the Southeast’s most trusted name in facility construction, operation and maintenance, participated in a renovation of the sea lion exhibit at the Georgia Aquarium.

McKenney’s had to adjust quickly when a proposed sea turtle exhibit was redesigned as a more complex sea lion habitat. With construction delayed during the redesign, the team had even less time to complete the project before opening day. About 40 McKenney’s tradesmen worked long hours in an occupied building with cramped work areas and limited onsite storage. They transported materials from a nearby location and worked quietly to avoid disrupting animals in neighboring exhibits.

Project Team
* Owner: Georgia Aquarium, Inc.
* General Contractor: Brasfield & Gorrie, LLC
* Subcontractor: McKenney’s, Inc.

The team worked diligently to develop quality submittals to avoid costly rejections. Items with long lead times were prioritized, so they were available when needed. Crews worked two shifts and overtime schedules to make up time. Two project managers coordinated from the field to manage workloads and maintain schedule adherence.

The renovation was completed on schedule in about six months, and the exhibit opened on time.
