San Antonio Zoo Tiny Tot
San Antonio Zoo Tiny Tot Nature Spot San Antonio, TX
One of the first of its kind, this Early Childhood Development Center houses animals and elements for children from birth to four years old. The building also accommodates a pump house for the center's water features.
Structural elements include autoclaved aerated concrete block as the structural walls and serve as exterior enclosure, offering high insulating value. The foundations are post-tensioned beam and slab systems due to the expansive soil conditions.
The building is the first LEED certified project in San Antonio.
