Toronto Zoo

Before

The dining area at the Toronto Zoo was plagued by tripping hazards due to poorly installed pavers. They were also looking to incorporate permeability to help with drainage issues stemming from rainfall. Ultimately the Toronto Zoo needed a long lasting, high quality finished patio product with no risk of shifting, lifting or heaving of the individual stones that would be cost-effective and easy to install.

Preparation

The ground was prepared to accommodate a sub-base that the Ecoraster grid could be placed upon to prevent shifting and movement over time.

Installation

The Ecoraster Grid uses a locking system that connects the grid together with minimal risk of movement. Paving stones were then placed on the grid with great ease.

After

Ecoraster helped to stabilize the area around the tables, and was able to be cut to accommodate existing structures. Not only were there structural benefits to using Ecoraster, but they also saved more than 40% on the cost of materials for the base alone. The Toronto Zoo was very pleased with the finished results and the versatility of the Ecoraster Grid they chose.
