Ireland Brown Constructions were engaged to construct a new state of the art veterinary hospital within the grounds of Werribee Open Range Zoo. The new vet hospital is critical to the future plans for Werribee Open Range Zoo, being a vast improvement on the current out-dated facility.

As a standalone architecturally designed structure, the new Veterinary Clinic incorporates the full range of services and finishes expected within a medical facility. The construction and fit out works included the erection of structural steel and timber framing, and the installation of a range of external finishes. External works include the installation of a client supplied 104,000L Water Tank and paving.

All works were undertaken within a fully operational zoo facility. This coupled with the sites location along a main interior road and the tight program, required the delivery of the building to be carefully considered and planned.  Such planning ensured the safety of zoo staff and visitors was maintained.
