Section 1

Tender Overview

Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service are seeking to engage a suitably qualified and experienced Architect, as the Principal Contractor, to complete the schematic design phase including site analysis, geotechnical testing and design documentation. Experience within the zoological industry will be considered as highly regarded to ensure wildlife standards, codes and welfare requirements (widlife, staff and visitors) are primary to design.

The intention is to develop the design for redeveloping the David Fleay Wildlife Park's small Nocturnal House to meet current standards for exhibiting wildlife in Queensland, daily servicing requirements, staff and wildlife welfare, and to enhance visitor experiences. An initial concept has been commissioned and may be utilised as the starting point for this schematic design phase. The proposed final construction budget should be no more than $1.5 million while addessing the following objectives:-

  • meet minimum standards for exhibiting wildlife in Queensland while providing flexibility in terms of wildlife that can be exhibited within each individual enclosure;
  • provide a safe, functional facility for wildlife, staff and visitors;
  • enhance safe accessibility in terms of delivering daily husbandry;
  • incorporate back of house space and facilities to meet associated wildlife care requirements;
  • deliver an immersive visitor experience from entry to exit;
  • optimise visitor viewing opportunities, including when wildlife are inactive;
  • maximise facility efficiencies through sustainable practices aiding operational costs;
  • capitalise on today’s technologies to enhance wildlife welfare, staff duties and visitor experiences;
  • minimise maintenance requirements; and
  • be reflective of the Park’s natural environment and design character.
