Zoomazium earns LEED Gold Rating

The Zoomazium at Woodland Park ZooThis January, Woodland Park Zoo’s new interactive play space, Zoomazium, became the first zoo project to attain a LEED Gold rating in the world. SvR provided civil engineering services for the project including: rerouting of utilities and utility hookups for the irrigation of the green roof, design of a regional detention facility, and grading and drainage for the amphitheater and main pathway. The 8,300-square-foot facility demonstrates lessons in sustainability with: a green roof with native plantings, energy conservation methods, use of sustainable materials and recycled content materials, green solar screens, and patterned glass (which reduces bird strikes).
