Although quantities were not large, the variety of different types of very specialized wood made this project one of extreme challenge for Ace’s staff. Our project managers had to plan way ahead and order just the right amount of materials months in advance since they had to be custom ordered to our dimensions and specifications and the order was coming all the way from Africa. Our staff certainly made good use of all their previous years of experience and lots of ingenuity to complete this project.

The scope of work carried Ace Fence staff through the Alligator Swamp, the Arroyo Lagarto Exhibit, the Tortoise Enclosure and the Oak Woodland Pond Exhibit.
