Scope of Work:
The “Staff Hub Relocation Project” is the first phase of the Bristol Zoo’s wider capital works programme to relocate the zoo from its historic site in Clifton, Bristol to the Wild Place Project on the outskirts of Bristol.

The works involved the internal and external refurbishment of the Grade-2 Listed Hollywood Mansion House and included;

  • Strip-out of existing out-dated M&E installation and finishes
  • Design and installation of new M&E systems to meet current Building Regulations and future proof the building to see current and future needs of the society’s management teams
  • Full internal fit-out of entire building including offices, board rooms, kitchens WC areas including the restoration of significant heritage assets
  • Restoration and repair works to external facade and windows
  • Re-roofing works
  • Design, manufacture and installation of specialist heritage roof lantern
  • Design of new fire strategy to meet current standards and modifications/upgrades to existing building fabric as required

The on-time completion of the projects was critical in unlocking the wider capital works programme. To achieve the programme close collaboration and intensive discussions were required with the Conservation Officer and our appointed heritage consultants.

Due to the close collaborative efforts and hard work from all members of the project team the building was handed over on programme and on budget to a delighted client.

“The project was delivered in time for staff to move in, on a tight budget to huge success and praise by staff and visitors and is now the proud base for the society. We look forward to an opportunity to work with Oakland again in the near future.”
