Citadel Construction is proud to have built numerous attractions at Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies. A large, multi-level play structure installed by Citadel required extensive welding inspections as well as safety checks. The steel structure towers in the atrium of Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies in Gatlinburg, TN. Citadel Construction managed the entire construction process on an expedited schedule from start to finish.
Citadel Construction later provided construction management for the new glass bottom boat ride. This feature attraction is built around a 3,500 lb glass bottom boat, which required retrofitting the building in order to accommodate the large installation.
Citadel Construction continues to help on various projects throughout the Aquarium, including the new penguin experience, among others.
Citadel Construction delivered the project on-time and on-budget. We could not have been more pleased with their construction management services.
