MazCon has been hired to construct a new Off-Site Bear Habitat for the remaining mature bear, “Lady”. Lady’s new home will be built on University-owned property located right off University Parks Dr. just East of the La Salle intersection. The property currently contains a large fenced area with climbing obstacles, tires, trees, and plenty of room to expend energy throughout the day.
The new 1,100sf building will consist of load-bearing CMU walls, steel beams for the roof structure and a “Baylor Green” metal roof to match the campus standard look and color scheme. Within the building there will be 2 bear enclosure areas with automated sliding gates that will open up directly into the existing fenced play area for easy access. The building will also contain a small workroom and a restroom for the trainers when on site.
