Minera Roof Trusses Chester Zoo

Minera Roof Trusses was approached by Read Construction to supply trusses for a wide variety of unusual roof shapes that were being installed as part of the Islands projects at Chester Zoo.

In total it supplied eight separate buildings with trusses for the Islands Project; each with its own individual design, the shape of the roofs themselves creating a dramatic feature to the look of the building.

The Tongkonan Restaurant roof and the Bali Starling roof required the most trusses at 68 and 66 respectively. In addition the majority of the trusses on these two buildings were ‘one offs’ i.e. virtually each truss was different and not repeated anywhere else on the structure.

The Islands at Chester Zoo is a project that Minera Roof Trusses is extremely proud to have worked on. The sheer scope and individual nature of each of the buildings is a true testament to its abilities when it comes to designing and manufacturing roof trusses for specialist projects which deviate from standard roof truss requirements.
