Snowdon Aviary, London Zoo
In January 2021 Pringle Richards Sharratt were appointed by the Zoological Society London (ZSL) to act as client Technical advisors on the refurbishment of the Grade II* listed iconic structure the Snowdon Aviary. The aviary is being converted to a Colobus exhibit and a new Monkey House is also being developed. The contract was let as a Design & Build contract to CBRE and has been on site now for the last 22 weeks. PRS carried out an in-depth familiarisation exercise, including a series of workshops with the various stakeholders to fully understand the rationale behind the requirements and wider objectives. PRS sits alongside the ZSL and project managers Mace ensuring that quality is maintained and that all sensitive heritage features are respected and safeguarded. Together with Mace we assist in monitoring progress of the works.
