Value:          £1,300,000
Duration:   25 Weeks

 

DESIGN - Read have long standing relationships with many local design practices, resulting in a favourable service to ensure a robust, sustainable and efficient (both in terms of buildability and operational cost). By rationalising the design and understanding the brief for the new ticket sales area, a structural solution for the roof was developed which generated a programme and cost saving to the client.

By agreeing a strategy with the client team in advance, routes, segregation and public protection measures, communication approach and emergency preparedness are all considerations which were effectively managed on site. Clear demarcation and signage ensured the works were physically segregated from visitors and staff at all times.

Having worked adjacent to the public and animals at Chester Zoo on high profile projects for over a decade, Read maintain a record of ZERO complaints, accidents or injuries.
