Sneak Peek! The Scaly Slimy Spectacular at Zoo Atlanta

On July 4th of this year, The Winter Johnson Group broke ground on the new Reptile and Amphibian exhibit, better known as the Scaly Slimy Spectacular.  Wakamo & Associates is a big fan of Zoo Atlanta and Grant Park so we decided to snoop around and snap some photographs during the construction.  It appears that the progress is right on schedule and before you know it (March 2015) we will have another remarkable attraction in our neighborhood!

Winter Johnson Group, a partnership of the Atlanta-based Winter Construction and Johnson Construction Services, has been selected as general contractor; Scaly Slimy Spectacular will be the company’s 22nd construction project. Project architects are Torre Design Group Consortium, Ltd. 
 
Scaly Slimy Spectacular will replace the 51-year-old World of Reptiles, the Zoo’s oldest building still in use for public exhibits. The new complex will be erected on a separate site which has not been accessible to the general public in decades. 
 
There are more than 450 reptiles and amphibians at Zoo Atlanta, but a sizable portion of these animals have not been on exhibit as a result of space constraints in the World of Reptiles. Scaly Slimy Spectacular will provide naturalistic new homes for members of the existing collection while introducing large crocodilians and other exciting new arrivals. The complex will feature interactive indoor venues and state-of-the-art exhibits showcasing the amazing extremes in size, speed, color and behavior that make reptiles and amphibians such compelling animals to observe, study, and protect.
