Project name: Chester Zoo, New Maintenance Facility

Contract: JCT IFC with Contractor Design 2016

Value: £2,015,000

Duration: 38 weeks


This collaborative scheme with a long term repeat client, saw the construction of a new maintenance building with access road and service yard to house the Zoo’s maintenance teams and workshops.

FLEXIBLE – The new facility was positioned adjacent to the Zoo’s live lecture theatre. Our site team worked closely with the Zoo to programme works considerately around the Zoo’s busy lecture schedule. Disruptive works were rescheduled to avoid lecture times, and clean, safe access was provided.

CONSIDERATE – Read staff respect client sites and understand that their undertakings reflect on our client’s image, and manage all projects in accordance with the principles of the Considerate Constructor Scheme. Having worked adjacent to the public and animals at Chester Zoo on high profile projects for over 20 years, Read maintain a record of ZERO complaints, accidents or injuries.
