Project:Pridelands, Auckland Zoo
In delivering this project Garyth gave special consideration to the speechless group – Animals. A fundamental part of the project delivery was noise and disruption to the animals be kept at an absolute minimum and continuously monitored and managed.
To ensure workability and safety access for keepers to the animal areas, Garyth developed computer models participating in the final detailing of such construction. He constantly coached, mentored and motivated all team members, sub-trades, sculptors, and artists influencing them to take positive action and accountability for their assigned work creating an effective team with a great collaborative approach.
Excavation work was preceded by thorough site investigations ensuring that vital services to the zoo and animal enclosures were not compromised. Contaminated material found on the site during occupation of WW2 resulted in all future excavation being tested for contamination before works could proceed.
Garyth was consistently positive and constantly striving for solutions to difficult problems and challenges resulting in a highly successful project.
