Welcome to Tropical House's Zoo Design page.
Here you can see some of the jobs we have completed in the past and I can tell you about the services we offer.We can work from the start of a concept right through to the arrival of the animals and beyond. We can draw the plans, make models, project manage the work, supply all trades for the construction, fit equipment and life support, theme and dress, source livestock and train staff in the care of more specialist species. In fact we are the partner you need to make your next season ‘rock’. 

The Walk Through Aviary Project, 2013
    The walk through Aviary at Five Sisters Zoo in Scotland is a perfect example of what we can do.
The site was originally a mix use site housing Asian Short Clawed Otters, Skunks and various bird species. These enclosures were at the very centre of the zoo and did not represent what the owners wanted as their centre piece. We proposed a number of solutions, of which the Walk Through Aviary was the most ambitious and grandest.
Work spanned around 2 months and the new aviary dominates the zoo. It is a fitting focal point from all directions and is a landmark of the zoo from a distance away.
It currently houses Herons, Glossy Starlings, Weavers and other African bird species. It is fully landscaped with hard paths throughout.

     "Andrew and his team came up with the Walk Through aviary and then completed the job under budget and on time. The cost was a lot lower than we had planned for and the finished result exceeded our expectations"     Brian Curran, Owner, Five Sisters Zoo
The Lost Kingdom Project

A major project between 2014-2015, we undertook a fantastic project, The Lost Kingdom Tropical House in West Lothian.
A space of 25000 sq ft was turned from a soft play centre into possibly the most impressive Reptile and Exotic Animals Exhibition in the UK. Tropical House were responsible for all of the construction and supplied all trades to the project. We also oversaw the Health and Safety aspect of the job, supplied the CDM coordinator and liaised with all relevant authorities thoughout the 6 month contract on behalf of the client.
Work involved a long walk through cave, an Aztec Temple facade and a walk through tropical area with birds and iguanas.
    "Tropical House brought innovation and cost effective ideas to this project. They took our initial concept and put their own stamp on it. Get Andrew in at the beginning, I would have no hesitation in recommending his company or using them again"  
Jay Wood, Manager of The Lost Kingdom, West Lothian
