Lagoon aquarium: part of the project “Leben am Stettiner Haff und in der Ueckermünder Heide, Umweltbildung und Geschichte”

Basis of the new building: demolition of the old building: Fa. Jesse, Eggesin

During the demolition a time capsule of the year 1962 was discovered. There were old coins, an example of the newspaper “Freie Erde” and a paper of Waldemar Scholze, the former director, signed on November 5, 1961 describing the career of the building of the “Brehm House”. A new time capsule was lowered.

After tremendous work for the ground, the new building was constructed since December 16, 2011.

Logistic challenges were the way for the 40 t low-loading vehicle and the mobile crane within 4 hours, already all 6 parts of the walls of the new aquarium were placed. There was no good weather all the time.

Winter started early in December 2011. Work was very difficult due to minus 25 degree.

The building with an area von 250 m2 was constructed of local raw material, constructed in the production halls of the company HOKO in Ueckermünde. Wood of local forests was transported by transport companies. OSB and MDF plates were constructed which were used for the walls.

The construction managers A&S from Neubrandenburg coordinated the process, they were accompanied by electro planning company Mr. Schade as well as planning of heating, air conditioning, sanitary company “Walter and Partner”, represented by Mr. Benecke.

Company Jesse, company Hafftrans, company HOKO, company Rickelt, company Kühn, company Ritzrow were the construction companies. The aquaria were delivered by Company Spranger from Plauen. The big aquaria were constructed by a special company in England.

The opening of the new aquarium with various fish species of the Szczecin lagoon took place at the 50th anniversary of Ueckermünde Zoo (August 11, 2012).
