Riverbanks Zoo & Garden- Columbia, SC

Four sea lions, a harbor seal and thousands of visitors have the opportunity to watch each other at the Riverbanks Zoo & Garden in Columbia, South Carolina, thanks to the efforts of a dedicated general contractor and a series of subcontractors who utilized rented construction equipment.

Formerly known as the Citrus Bowl

Built in 1936, the Citrus Bowl was the place to hold bowl games, sporting events and out­door exhibitions in the greater Orlando area. When it was built, the stadium was an architectural marvel. Over the next 80 years as crowds grew and more modern stadiums were built, the Citrus Bowl looked worn by comparison.
