It's All Happening At The Zoo

A zoo is a city -- rather, a world -- unto itself.  Its inhabitants run, swim, fly, or even travel through the rainforest on vines; some of them get oxygen from the air and others breathe it in through their gills underwater.  Their natural habitats range in climate from the Arctic to the Sahara and everything in between; they come in all shapes and sizes and their diets are just as varied.  As if replicating so many different natural environments were not enough of a challenge, there are the zoo visitors to consider as well!  Exhibits must be designed and built to create the optimum experience for those on both sides of the viewing window.

Site/civil and structural engineering services play a significant role in creating and maintaining optimal environments for the animals, zoo staff, and visitors.  Silver Creek Engineering has provided these services to the Indianapolis Zoo for several exhibit areas throughout the zoo, including the International Orangutan Center, the Cheetah Exhibit in the Plains, the Tiger Forest, the Encounters Exhibit, and the Oceans Building.
