TSA Installs Roof on Caribbean Jungle Exhibit
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -
The Texas State Aquarium has put the top on one of its newest exhibits. On Thursday morning, crews with Fulton/Coastcon Construction moved the frame of a glass roof onto the top of the new Caribbean wing.
The frame will be filled out with nearly 450 glass window panes. The glass window is made up of a system that includes three panes of missile impacted rated hurricane glass. The aluminum structure weighs about 145,000 pounds without the glass and has been placed atop the new jungle habitats.
Construction of the Texas State Aquarium's new Caribbean wing is expected to be completed by Spring Break 2017. The total cost of the project has been set at about $56 million.
