Acamas provided civil engineering and permitting for renovations to the Main Camp Safari Lodge, the Zambezi River Restaurant, the Australian Adventure, Rhino/Cape Buffalo facilities, administrative offices, and the jaguar exhibit range at the Jacksonville Zoo. The project included the design of an interconnected waterway system that meanders through the zoo. This system mimics a natural waterway with waterfalls and flow into the adjacent river, while simultaneously providing water quality treatment of storm water prior to discharge.
