Chimpanzee Exhibit Refurbishment, Taronga Zoo


Taronga Conservation Society of NSW


Bradleys Head Road, Mosman





Project Description

The project is the refurbishment of the existing Chimpanzee Exhibit at Taronga Zoo for the Taronga Conservation Society Australia. The project consists of the demolition and refurbishment of the Chimpanzee Nighthouse – the demolition of the existing boardwalk with the construction of a new viewing platform and viewing shelter adjacent to the refurbished moat. The ‘open paddock’ area has five 10m high ‘climbing structures’ made out of structural steel and timber. The project has a stainless steel mesh ‘aviary’ structure which forms the separation enclosure to house the chimpanzees.

“There is that consistency with Lipman throughout the projects we have used them on, and that’s a really good thing for us. It’s an environment where we feel comfortable, it’s a ‘set and forget’ contract we can have with them, we know that they’re going to be honest, we know that they will do what say they will do and I know one of their catch cries is ‘One team. One Goal’ and I think Lipman make you part of that one team and we feel like that that one goal is a group experience that Lipman are more than encouraging to involve us in.

Its value for money. We use other builders as well as Lipman and the experience is ok… but it’s not the same. So we would like more builders to come out and be like Lipman, with all these little bits and pieces that make the icing on the cake and it’s that experience for us that means we know we are not over spending, because like I said before we are a ‘not for profit’ organisation, and we can put that money back into our residents, back into those people that we are here for. Lipman are part of that team and that’s the really instilling thing I must put forward…. They are very, very, very good organisation as far as that goes.

You can see that their culture is instilled in each individual throughout the whole company, from their Managing Director all the way down to their labourers.”
