ORLANDO, Florida (July 25, 2014) – PCL Construction, Inc. has begun working on the $41 million Orange Country Convention Center and $40 million Zoo Miami New Entrance and Florida Exhibits.

“The PCL team is excited to collaborate with the community on these projects,” said Rick Goldman, manager of business development for PCL in Orlando. “Enhancing the convention center in Orange County and the Zoo in Miami-Dade County will provide Floridians with improved and enhanced services and facilities.”
PCL will renovate and upgrade 460,000 square feet of existing exhibit halls, meeting rooms, concourses, and back-of-house spaces at the Orange County Convention Center Phase II West Building. The project team will also replace and upgrade existing mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems and membrane roofing. Already underway, the project is scheduled for completion in July 2015.
For the $40 million Zoo Miami New Entrance and Florida Exhibits, PCL will improve the zoo entrance as well as provide additional exhibit space for new animal exhibits. The zoo will remain completely operational to guests throughout the duration of the project. PCL will build the hardscape, landscape, infrastructure, and back-of-house support facilities needed for new black bear, raccoon, panther, alligator, crocodile, owl, fox, and otter exhibits. PCL will also construct a boat ride and cloud-like roof feature in the entry way. Currently underway, the project will be complete in June 2016.
