BRIDGEPORT, CT – Diversity Construction Group of Cheshire has been awarded a design-build project for the renovation and construction of the Andean bear habitat at Connecticut’s Beardsley Zoo in Bridgeport.

Diversity Construction Group will be teaming with Zoo Design, Inc., a Seattle- based design company specializing in zoos, conservation and animal welfare organizations; and Diversified Technology Consultants, Inc. (DTC), a Hamden-based engineering and landscape architecture firm.

Connecticut’s Beardsley Zoo is proposing to construct an Andean bear exhibit which it will call the “Spirit of the Cloud Forest” to allow the Andean bears to reside in a natural setting, while being part of the AZA-accredited Zoo’s Species Survival Plan (SSP) for endangered species.

The project will consist of a bear holding area, a viewing building, an outdoor viewing platform and walkways, and landscaping which will include two on-exhibit exterior habitats and one fully enclosed habitat.
