CLM Services Ltd won the contract after tender to design, manufacture and install a 22m screen to the Elephant enclosure in Chester Zoo. The screen would be used by the Keepers to undertake health checks on the Elephants.
Site access was restricted to 6 hours per day, 10 am until 4pm. The enclosure was still being used by Elephants outside of these hours.
Each panel was 3m wide by 3.2m high and weighed just over 400kg. Moving the panels around the site and into position took careful consideration and planning due to their size, and also to accommodate the daily running functions of the enclosure.
The programme only allowed 9 days for completion of the project, which had to be met. The job was delivered on time and to budget, much to the delight of the keepers and Project Manager.
The keepers now find it easier, but more importantly, safer to complete their daily welfare checks on the elephants.
“Working with CLM on this project was a pleasure, CLM provide a fantastic service and their work is of the highest standard. CLM kept us informed through the whole process from detailed design to installation. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending them.”
