Project Overview

ATM was retained by Jacoby Development to create concept plans for the replacement of the existing dolphin and aquatic life habitats in Marineland in order to create a state-of-the-art research and resort destination. Following an inventory of the existing infrastructure, which dated back to 1938, it was decided that the entire structure should be demolished to accommodate a new facility. ATM staff worked with the project team to develop conceptual designs that evolved into the design of a modern habitat for dolphins and other marine life consistent with the client’s vision. Services included design and engineering of a 1.3 million gallon concrete saltwater lagoon with multiple interconnected tanks, a beach area for human-dolphin interactions and viewing windows. ATM also design the associated hydraulic systems providing both raw and recirculated seawater to the dolphin habitat.
