InfraBuild is proud to have supported the construction of a new baboon enclosure at the Zambi Wildlife Retreat in Sydney’s west.
Zambi is a retreat for exotic animals retired from the circus and entertainment industry, zoos and private owners. It provides an enriching habitat for big cats and primates and operates a rescue and rehabilitation facility for native, domestic and farm animals.
In October 2020, InfraBuild’s Steel Centre at Wetherill Park was approached by our long-standing customer, Steel Builders, to provide 7.5 tonnes of tubular product to construct a new baboon enclosure being built by Clarendon Homes.
InfraBuild in partnership with Steel Builders provided all the fabricated steel for the project, and while the enclosure was a complex fabrication project, it came together perfectly to create a new home for the baboons.
With 100 years continuous operations and 150 locations across metropolitan regional Australia, InfraBuild recognises that we are part of our local community.
Steve Tideswell, Sydney Steel Centre Manager, said that InfraBuild’s involvement in the project was an extension of its strong networks.
“This was a great opportunity to work with our customers and community in a different kind of construction project,” he said.
“We are committed to creating value for all our stakeholders and building strong, vibrant local communities.
“The new enclosure is such a worthwhile initiative. Our steel products are usually used for a range of major infrastructure and construction projects so to see our products used in this way is very gratifying.”
The new enclosure is now home to Zambi’s six baboons, the eldest aged 23 years, and features protected sleeping quarters, a large-raised platform with thatched roof, walking beams, perching, and a waterfall and pond. It has been landscaped with grasses, logs and boulders to replicate their natural habitat. The enclosure has also been designed to assist carers to maintain a high standard of care.
