Fota Wildlife Park

This project involved the creation of a completely new entry area to the existing wildlife park from the existing car park, including new entry plaza with ticket kiosks, a new café and shop building, a new office and administration building, and a new wc block.

The project also involved the conversion of the existing buildings to an education centre.

The new buildings were intentionally kept ‘low key’ with the use of simple materials to fit in with the informal nature of the park and also sit comfortably with the wooded setting.

Overall master plan and landscape design by Jones + Jones (USA). Project/contract management and structural, civil, mechanical & electrical engineering by Hayes Higgins Partnership.
