Toyota Elephant Passage at Denver Zoo
Denver, CO United States | 2012
The new Oregon zoo railway incorporates 20' high steel girders in the forest north of Elephant Lands. This open air railway takes passengers on a optimized spectacular view of animals including the new Elephant Lands exhibit and the annual winter Zoolights. The train trestleway is subject to Oregons extremely wet winter and spring seasons. Similarly the large sun shades, which received a duplex coating for aesthetics, are exposed to the same inclement weather. For these reasons, the two sun shades, railing for the main approach bridge and walkway, and train trestle support with clips for the railway were all hot-dip galvanized.
The 14,000 square foot barn encompasses a complex system of stalls...
The feeding tower in the center of the Forest Hall offers the asian elephants a place to exercise their curiosity by exploring surprises hidden in small holes. The spiral staircase in the center of the tower and the radiused cage at the top of the tower were galvanized for corrosion protection due to the corrosive environment and exposure to elephant traffic. The 14,000 square foot barn encompasses a complex system of stalls, gates and chutes to safely hold, treat, and care for the wonderful Asian elephants. The $57 million Elephant Lands is a cutting edge project and serves as a model for other zoos to follow.
All of the supporting beams for the 33,000 square foot Forest Hall with auditorium seating, feeding tower and sand dune play area as well as the 14,000 square foot barn with feeding stalls and holding areas were hot-dip galvanized for corrosion protection.
