Bison Viewing Decks


Fort Worth, TX

Anchor Construction sponsored and provided design-build services for new bison viewing decks at the Fort Worth Nature Center and Refuge. This exciting project, sponsored by Anchor Construction, the Ryan Foundation, H-E-B, and Friends of the Fort Worth Nature Center and Refuge, started being planned for in October 2020, and construction was completed late last year.

Anchor contributed to the project by donating money, designing, and constructing the new ADA-compliant parking lot and two elevated decks, one 5 feet tall and 160 sq. feet and the other 14 feet tall and 780 sq. feet. Through Anchor’s design-build approach and careful consideration of preserving nature through the construction, the deck layout was modified to avoid knocking down larger trees.
