The Welsh Mountain Zoo, near Colwyn Bay in north Wales, hosted a networking event for CIOB members in June, after its director of estates, Neil Morris, secured chartered status.
The event included a presentation on its construction programme. Over 45 people attended including former CIOB president Martin Chambers and Gordon Brown, chair of CIOB Wales.
Luke Jones from D2 Architects, designer behind the snow leopard enclosure, was also on hand.
Chartered status enables Morris to take a more hands-on role. He said: “Even with a three-decade-long background in senior-level construction, the majority of our projects have had to be outsourced in terms of management to main contractors.
“While I’ve had the skills and experience to manage these schemes internally, compliance can only be guaranteed via chartered status or similar, which I now officially have.”
