Founded in 1973, the 250-acre landscaped park in Bewdley homes a number of endangered and exotic wildlife. The popular tourist attraction has continued to increase its purpose-built space to meet the growing interest in animal conservation and study. It is estimated that the site receives up to 46,000 school children per year from more than 1,000 schools across the UK, who come to learn about wildlife and take part in activities.
In 2017, a new £1 million enhanced facility and African style walkway was constructed on land adjacent to ‘Hippo Lakes’ which comprises research, media, education, and fund-raising space.
500 m2 of the Kingspan TEK Building System in a 142 mm thickness were pre-cut to specification by delivery partners, Glosford SIPS. The entire building envelope was manufactured off-site and transported to the park then craned into position above screw pile foundations.
