Phase 1

Design

The first phase addresses feasibility, budgeting, concept development, creative themes, visitor-experience design and journey-mapping, detailed engineering and project planning.

Phase 2

Build

The second phase focuses on acrylic manufacturing, construction and installation, the supply and installation of life support systems, waterproofing, lighting, filling and stocking the tanks.

Phase 3

Operate

The third phase includes handing the aquarium over to its owners and operators. Also included this phase, for older aquariums, are services relating to refurbishment and renovation.

Worldwide

Project Delivery

We typically combine on-site construction teams with the timely delivery of high-quality components and skid-mounted, prefabricated life support system equipment made in our global production hubs.

Exceptional

Versatile

Markets We Serve

Aquariums come in all shapes and sizes.

Some are enormous, award-winning destinations that draw visitors from near and far.

Others are smaller installations providing unique features and experiences in shopping malls, resorts, transportation hubs, community services, commercial spaces and private dwellings.

AAT has helped build all of these and more – we even installed a circular tank for salmon in a Norwegian fish market!

So whatever your project, give us a call.

Strategic Suppliers

Unsurprisingly, pumps and piping play an essential role in the successful operation of an aquarium.

AAT maintains longstanding and mutually valued relationships with some of the world’s best component suppliers such as GF Piping Systems (HQ Switzerland) and Prochem Pumps (HQ South Africa).

In collaboration with GF and Prochem, we successfully deploy, inspect and maintain these products anywhere in the world.
