The Peoria Zoo : Peoria, Illinois
2,505 square feet | undisclosed
The Peoria Zoo was expanding to include a new Takin animal enclosure. This enclosure required unique electrical designs, based around the specific needs and abilities of the animal. Anything within reach of the animals needed to be indestructible and corrosion resistant. The enclosure would need to include lighting, fans, and electric waterers.
KED SOLUTION : Designing for Exotic Animals
We designed the system to incorporate all necessary features for the animal’s habitat, including the lighting, fans, and electric waterers. All materials and equipment were chosen based on their durability and corrosion-resistance, ensuring a safe and secure system for the enclosure. As a result of the project, the Peoria Zoo now has a Takin Exhibit, creating a home for the animals and expanding the zoo experience for visitors.
