Taronga Zoo is the Sydney city zoo located on the shores of the Harbour in Mosman and is managed by the Zoological Parks Board of New South Wales. Divided into eight zoogeographic regions across 21-hectares it is home to over 4,000 animals of 340 species. Taronga Zoo recently embarked on a series of refurbishment projects undertaken across the campus in order to upgrade the centre’s administrative facilities
CSM provided storage products for two concurrent projects undertaken by different designers and builders for the Zoo’s ongoing facilities upgrade project. CSM was specified for different projects in order to facilitate the aesthetic continuity of the storage provided as well as provide long- term storage solutions.
The first project for The Taronga Institute of Science and Learning was designed by NBRS + Partners and built by Graphite Projects. CSM worked closely on the design elements for this project providing a product mix to cater to the Zoo’s storage specifications.
The second project for the refurbishment of Taronga Centre’s Office was designed by Alasdair Macdonald and built by MPA. CSM products allowed Taronga Zoo to have the flexibility to incorporate the same products at different locations and hence future proof the fit-out.
On these projects CSM supplied Infinity Tambour Door Cabinets, Infinity Open Bookcases, Oxy Planters and Sistema Wall units. All works were completed on time and within budget.
