The Maryland Zoo in Baltimore Penguin Coast

Penguin Coast is the largest outdoor African penguin habitat in North America. The project covers an area of nearly two acres and includes a 200,000-gallon, ring-shaped pool with rockwork and water features; four separate buildings; and extensive life support and filtration systems. The new exhibit also includes both above and below water viewing areas to the perimeter of the pool, as well as a main penguin holding building located in the center of the exhibit. In addition to construction of the penguin exhibit, the project also includes improvements to site utilities including stormwater systems, telecommunications and electrical feeds.
