TWYCROSS ZOO NEW GIBBON ENCLOSURE ISLAND MOATS
With family values, our small company was sought out by RCA Construction to assist them in consultancy and then design-and-build of these four new moats. Gibbons neither like getting wet nor will jump across water, so a five metre width was computed, designed and then built for us to line.
With approximately 400,000 litres of water per moat, state of the art automatic OASE ProfiClear filtration was added with eco-friendly supply pumps. We also created three streams which are stand-alone from their lower moat, but give the illusion of a full re-circulatory system.
This is now the largest Gibbon enclosure in Europe. It was an amazing project to work on, assisting and working alongside RCA who pulled off an amazing job in sometimes difficult circumstances.
