The Maryland Zoo
The Maryland Zoo lacked accurate documentation for many of its buildings, including historic items like fountains, the Old Elephant House, and the Round Stand. Additionally, newer structures like the Giant Tree in the Maryland Wilderness posed difficulties in documentation due to their unique materials. Restoring the Crise Fountain had to rely on old photographs as no drawings were available. However, the partnership between the Maryland Zoo and Existing Conditions has greatly facilitated repairs and proved a more cost-effective and accurate alternative to hand drawings.
Existing Conditions successfully documented approximately 176,425 square feet, encompassing various areas such as the Old Elephant House, Round Stand, Mansion House, Maryland Building, and more. Existing Conditions' comprehensive efforts aimed to accurately document the structures and areas of interest at the Maryland Zoo, including conducting a drone survey of Celebration Hill.
