We are proud of all the projects we work on here at Westlake, but it’s hard to top the feeling of working with the Oregon Zoo. Since the Zoo Bond was passed in 2008, we have had opportunities to provide survey services to support numerous upgrades and designs for the Zoo, including a new veterinary hospital, the Rhino and Hippo habitat redesign, and the award-winning, six-acre ‘Elephant Lands.’
Our services have included development and construction surveying services, as well as 3D scanning which helped reduce impact to animals and visitors while collecting project data.
Recently we provided construction staking for the brand new Education Center, as sub-consultant to Fortis Construction, Inc. Take a look at this great time-lapse video provided by the Zoo, showcasing this fantastic project which includes an Insect Zoo, event space, and numerous interpretive displays. We look forward to continuing work with the Zoo through 2020!
It’s finished! Meet the new Education Center.
