Shark Shallows


  • Owner: South Carolina Aquarium, Charleston ,SC
  • Cost: $39,500.00
  • Completion Date: November, 2014

Scope of Services:

Cape Romain is a subcontractor to Division Five, Inc. Division Five is the structural steel fabricator for this project. Division Five contracted Cape Romain because some of the project can only be accessed by using a barge and crane. The project is to construct a large display tank for sharks that will be on an existing exterior deck of the Aquarium. The deck overlooks the Cooper River. Cape Romain will install a large steel beam underneath the existing deck to structurally improve load carrying capacity of deck where shark tank will be. Additionally, Cape Romain will install the structural steel above the new tank for the roof and canopy system
