South American Rain Forest Exhibit – Buffalo Zoo

Medical & Hospital Construction Projects

Resetarits Construction was contracted to perform the Construction Management of the immersive walk-through natural habitat exhibit at the Buffalo Zoo. This 26,000 square foot, fully enclosed tropical rainforest provides the Zoo with a signature, four-season attraction that is home to more than 30 species including exotic reptiles, birds, monkeys and giant anteaters. Completing the incredible tropical exhibit is a 30-foot waterfall.

Behind the scenes of the featured exhibit the structure is supported by extremely complex mechanical systems to maintain the climate control necessary to support the existence of the occupying flora and fauna. In addition to the delicate climate controls, multiple veterinary food preparation areas as well as specialized animal holding centers support the zoological complex. One unique feature of the complex is the roofing system that is comprised of pneumatic cushions restrained in aluminum extrusions and supported by a lightweight structure. The cushions are inflated with low pressure air to provide insulation and resist wind loads.

The projects complex building systems required international coordination resulting in a critical path timeline and field accuracy.
