Asdauntingofataskasitis,Mrs.Copeland,weacceptthechallengeofbuildingyour

tower.Themeasurementsareprecise,andthedesignischallenging,butwebelievewecando

thisjob.Wewilldedicateourselvestothisproject,andhopewecansatisfyyourrequests.The

designoftheDetroitZooWaterTowerisverycleverandweareenthusiasticandexcitedabout

recreatingitasahome.Theaquariumtiesinnicelyaswell.Thefloorofthetowerwillbefour

inchesofPlexiglas,justasyouasked.Weunderstandthatyouwantthetowertohave20sides,

andalsomaximizeitsspaceontheplotboundaries,whichare31’x31’.Thewallswillbeofone

footthicknessandthefooting,whichismadeofconcrete,willbe3.5feetdeep.Again,wewill

proceedintheconstructionofthetowerimmediatelyandwecertainlyhopeyouarehappywith

ourwork.
