Featured Zoos Projects

Browse through this selection of projects to see some of the many ways Sprung structures are helping to support the exhibit and event-space needs of zoos around the world.

Solutions for zoos and aviary buildings

Zoos are turning to Sprung to help increase revenue-generating activities through the addition of new buildings and spaces. Sprung structures are a fast and cost-effective way to add multi-use facilities for exhibition spaces, event and entertainment centers, banquet facilities and specialty animal housing such as aviary buildings. Sprung structures are permanent but are also designed to be adaptable, which means they can be easily repurposed or moved as needs change.

Permanent and temporary enclosures

Sprung has provided fast and effective building solutions for many zoos across North America. Examples include the Buffalo Zoo’s walk-in interactive aviary building, which showcases over 300 birds native to the Australian outback. The National Aviary in Pittsburgh has also expanded its footprint by using a Sprung structure as an on-site aviary enclosure.

Choose Sprung for zoo structures

Sprung structures provide much more appealing aesthetics when compared to conventional zoo tents. Our technology includes highly tensioned and extremely durable exterior membranes, optional insulation packages, high-visibility glazing walls, and a wide variety of door and exterior color choices.

Many zoos have already made Sprung their building solution of choice. Sprung structures have been used for retail space at the San Diego Zoo, exhibition space at the Toronto Zoo, elephant enclosures at the Edmonton Zoo, warehousing facilities at the San Francisco Zoo, and banquet spaces at the Conservatory of Flowers in San Francisco.

All-weather aviary buildings

A Sprung structure is engineered for year-round use and is an ideal solution for a multi-purpose zoo facility that can be utilized for large-space zoo exhibits such as an elephant enclosure, giraffe range or aviary structure. You can also rent your structure out for special gatherings or corporate events, including weddings and parties. Our convenient in-house leasing option allows zoos to rent structures from one month to five years with the option to purchase.
