”The completed works are of an extremely good quality and we would have no hesitation in recommending Priory Gate for future projects.” Robin Fitzgerald, Senior Projects Officer, ZSL
Priory Gate has been privileged to spend the last two summers at Whipsnade Zoo, constructing unique facilities for the zoo’s smallest and tallest guests! Hullabazoo provides an incredible indoor play centre for the under 10’s and this £750k project is in a prime location next to the children’s farm.
Working in close proximity to free roaming animals and accommodating the daily elephant walk were two of the more unusual challenges faced by our site team. Following our successful delivery of Hullabazoo and opening in time for the autumn half term, the Giraffe House extension includes a 40m timber ramp leading to a circular viewing platform, allowing visitors to literally come face to face with the giraffes. With superb surroundings and the added benefit of a glorious summer, it has been a hugely exciting time to be working at Whipsnade Zoo .
