A £30M scheme to create a sub-tropical environment for endangered species at Chester Zoo is taking shape.
These images have been released of Laing O’Rourke’s Exotic Islands project in the North West.
Due for completion next spring, the exhibit will feature six South East Asian island climates housing Sumatran orang-utans, Sulawesi macaques and the sunda gavial crocodile.
Subcontractor Peri is carrying out in-situ concrete works, creating specially crafted bridges and secure internal walls.
Peri sales manager Ian Higginbottom said: “We always relish the challenge of being involved in the most ambitious projects.
“The Chester Zoo islands exhibit has presented many technical challenges including ensuring that the correct sequencing of PeriI equipment was used.”
