Renovation of Life Support Piping Systems in Fort Walton Beach, Florida
Fort Walton Beach, Florida
Owner: Gulf Exhibition Corporation
General Contractor: McKenney’s, Inc.
Pipe Shop Prefab
Engineer: McKenney’s, Inc. and
Georgia Aquarium, Inc.
McKenney’s renovated the life support piping systems at the Gulfarium
Marine Adventure Park in Florida.
Working within the customer’s budget, McKenney’s had to renovate the
life support piping systems at a popular aquatic park during a seasonal
shutdown. There were no designs or drawings to guide the work, and
the team had to replace a badly damaged overflow line as well as unclog
and stop leaks in remaining steel pipes.
McKenney’s conducted the work in two phases to accommodate the
customer’s budget. With the knowledge gained from a previous large
aquarium piping project, the Georgia Aquarium and McKenney’s team
coordinated the design with facility personnel and created drawings
for fabrication and installation. To unclog pipes that would remain in
place and prevent future leaks, McKenney’s cleaned and lined the
pipes with fiberglass.

McKenney’s resolved the life support piping system issues and performed
the work on time and under budget while returning savings to the owner
of Gulfarium Marine Adventure Park.
