Projects in this category include non-prestressed structures such as domes and shells made from more traditional materials like concrete.

Prestressed structures may include saddle shaped cablenets, planar wall or roof glass surfaces supported by a stressed cable network.

Externally supported roofs (cable supported) also come into this category.

Taronga Zoo Chimpanzee Enclosure - Sydney 

APPLICATION OF PROJECT:   Separation Enclosure for Chimpanzees.

The Taronga Zoos’ chimpanzee troop is one of the largest captive groups in the world with recognized wild behavior patterns and a sophisticated social hierarchy.  With its population including four maturing sub-adult males jockeying and promoting themselves within the group, the zoo cited a need for the construction of a fully enclosed and semi-transparent separation paddock within the chimpanzee exhibit to allow the chimpanzees to be easily divided as needed, without moving them to an entirely new location, and thus avoiding potential commotion.

The Seperation Enclosure:

  • facilitates the introduction of new chimpanzee females to maintain the genetic pool.
  • provides the necessary infrastructure for the current troop management strategy and philosophies.
  • permits the troop to remain outside in summer unsupervised where this was previously not possible.
  • maximizes viewing time for the public.
