Ashwood has the principal contractor capacity and capability to deliver bespoke solutions on projects of huge national and international significance in the most sensitive and logistically testing of live environment surroundings.
We constructed two new separate panda houses (one with cub den) to exceptionally high acoustic standards, with natural habitat cooling and robustness of structure and finish to provide absolute panda comfort and keeper safety and two new enclosures to allow for panda feeding, stimulation and play and for optimum visitor viewing experience.
Key requirements to observe animal and visitor priorities and for controlled movement of materials by telehandler and golf-buggy from Zoo entrance to site outside of feeding times and opening hours was managed without incident. For a delighted Customer we are currently undertaking repeat business works forming the new Giraffe Enclosure.
