Brookfield Zoo

Exhibit Additions and Restaurant

“Brookfield Zoo, also known as the Chicago Zoological Park, is a zoo located in the Chicago suburb of Brookfield, Illinois. It houses around 450 species of animals in an area of 216 acres (87 ha). It opened on July 1, 1934,[4] and quickly gained international recognition for using moats and ditches instead of cages to separate animals from visitors and from other animals. The zoo was also the first in America to exhibit giant pandas, one of which (Su Lin[5]) has been taxidermiedand put on display in Chicago’s Field Museum of Natural History. In 1960, Brookfield Zoo built the nation’s first fully indoordolphin exhibit, and in the 1980s the zoo introduced Tropic World, the first fully indoor rain forest simulation and the then-largest indoor zoo exhibit in the world.”

Lane Tech College Prep

Stadium and Locker Room Renovation

“During the spring 2007 season, the Chicago city building inspectors declared the stadium at Lane Tech College Prep unsafe and condemned the eastern half of the field. Since the stadium was built on top of a covered over landfill, there is still great concern on capacity levels. However we were able to renovate around this issue and continue renovation in and around the field. Lane Stadium reopened with a new turf field, IHSA regulation track, and new locker rooms.”
