‘Africa Rocks’ Behind the Scenes Tour Benefits Foundation

Two dozen members of the National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) enjoyed an exclusive behind the scenes tour and construction site walk of the new ‘Africa Rocks’ exhibit at the world famous San Diego Zoo. Hosted by construction project manager Rudolph & Sletten, the fundraiser benefitted the Future Construction Leaders Foundation.

Participants were able to see the construction site in many different stages of completion, from underground utility installation, to a three-acre wire canopy that will become the enclosures for many of the animals. This will give an open feel to the exhibit,
allowing the animals a more natural habitat. The group also viewed the finished section where penguins and tiger sharks are displayed.

A big thank you to Rudolph & Sletten for generously hosting NAWIC and Rudolph & Sletten’s ongoing support of our programs to develop a quality construction workforce.
