Project Update: Mote Science Education Aquarium (SEA)

RSI recently finished the Gulf of Mexico tank as part of its turnkey concrete package for the new Mote SEA project in Sarasota.

The Gulf of Mexico tank is the largest and most complicated of the tanks at the Mote SEA and is a major project milestone.

When completed, the new aquarium will be a 110,000 square foot, $130 million facility on 12 acres near the Sarasota and Manatee County line.

Other tanks in the structure will include a large manatee tank, an otter tank, and other smaller tanks for a total of 16 tanks. The facility will also have a food court, gift shop, and other amenities.

RSI is working with the general contractors, Willis Smith Construction/Whiting-Turner JV, and we continue to enjoy our work on this exciting, landmark project.
