zoo structures and enclosures

Zoo Structures

Our mesh zoo structures offer the perfect wildlife and animal enclosures for zoos and conservation areas. We have unrivalled specialist experience in building bespoke animal enclosures tailored to each species and environment.

From snow leopard enclosures, Sumatran tigers, to orangutans, howler monkeys and other species like otters, ferrets and raccoons, we’ve designed, sourced and built a number of landmark bespoke net and mesh zoo structures and animal enclosures across the UK and Europe.

Robust and Safe Zoo Structures

High-tech architectural mesh is used to create a robust zoo structure that maintains its strength when tested or put under load, and can equally withstand the worst of weather and wind conditions.

Our team have extensive expertise about the behaviours of different animals and have worked with many animal specialists to understand the requirements for each different type of animal habitat and enclosure to keep the animals and the public safe.

An Invisible Barrier

Our zoo structures create an open feel at the same time as providing the safety, security and peace of mind you need when creating the perfect animal enclosure.

Providing a nearly invisible barrier, our mesh zoo structures can also significantly enhance visitor experience by allowing the maximum opportunity for seeing the animals in their built environments and surroundings.

Animal Welfare

Over the years we have developed an extensive amount of in-house specialist knowledge around the habitat requirements for different animals and challenges faced by zoos. We always work closely with the zoo’s team and other animal specialists to find enclosure solutions that prioritise the well-being of the animals, maximise the space within the constraints, and that meet zoo’s requirements.

Additionally, native British wildlife needs to be protected from cross contamination of captive animals. Base Structures can discuss and advise you on the various options to manage these challenges and create zoo structures and animal enclosures to meet the requirements of each species.

Expertise at Every Stage

We have a large amount of experience in designing and organising the right zoo structure for you. We know that no one will know their animals better than you, and working with our team of specialists, we can handle your entire project from concept to completion, taking into account both the initial steel construction and the installation of the mesh itself. We are highly qualified and experienced in rope access and working at height  too, so you can be assured of being in a safe pair of hands from beginning to end.

A One Stop Shop

Not only do you get our expert team at your disposal, but we can also offer the added benefits of having all our animal enclosure knowledge under one roof, meaning you don’t have to deal with a range of suppliers. From the simplification of costs to the benefit of having one point of contact, we can ensure your project runs smoothly and your zoo structures are delivered to appropriate budgets and timescales.
