Days out at London Zoo
Our Building Pathology team have been carrying out bridge inspections at the world-renowned Zoological Society of London (ZSL) HQ.
This particular package of work included non-destructive and both intrusive/non-intrusive investigations to a bridge linking the main zoo to the famous Snowdon Aviary. The aviary is undergoing a major restoration and is expected to open in summer this year.
The bridge was constructed in the early 60’s and our work will assist with ensuring public safety and planning of any maintenance required. Innovative techniques are employed to understand the condition of the concrete and reinforcement. Following completion of the physical work our report will confirm requirements for any remedial works and a general assessment of the structure.
We have a long track record of surveying and inspecting historic structures, recent examples include Royal Parks bridges , a Saxon church and heritage steel framed buildings of the Edwardian era. For the latter we have designed, installed, and continue to monitor cathodic protection systems.
It wasn’t all work …we got the opportunity to see a month-old Sumatran tiger cub with her mother, quite a privilege
