  • The Greensboro Science Center’s growing membership and foot traffic led to the need for more exhibits and space at the popular zoo.

 

  • One-way walking trails created a returning congested footpath. In the 11-acre expansion, the walking trail continues in a loop along this outdoor addition called “Revolution Ridge.”

 

  • New species (Pygmy hippos, Okapi, Cassowaries, Chilean flamingos) populate climate-appropriate sections of a natural ridge going down to a pond with water features.

 

 

  • An amphitheater, food truck area, and interpretive exhibits complete this festive, family-friendly destination in Greensboro.

The construction team’s commitment to the GSC’s satisfaction has been evident in every action they have taken. [Samet] brought a teamwork mentality to this project and proactively sought prompt and effective solutions to any challenge encountered. The GSC has certainly benefited from this partnership, as have all the animals that now call Revolution Ridge their home!
