The Zoo had a need to replace their Public Safety office where they run their security department and screen employees and contractors for entrance to the facility. Their existing building was in a state of disrepair and it was time for a change. Anchor Modular Buildings worked closely with the Zoo’s facilities and security departments to design a new prefabricated office that would meet the architectural and aesthetic requirements of the surrounding buildings but also allow the installation of electronic locks, video cameras, secure access and more.
