The Associated General Contractors of Ohio honored the Toledo Zoo for its aquarium renovation with a 2015 Build Ohio Award. Rudolph Libbe served as construction manager.
The Toledo Zoo had a unique vision for this project – to preserve the historic 75-year-old building’s exterior and create a 21st century aquarium inside the 30,000-square-foot building footprint. The remodel nearly quadrupled water volume from 46,000 to 170,000 gallons. The aquarium now includes 32 exhibits with 200 species.
