Particular care was taken to retain all significant vegetation and to work with the exisitng site topography in order to minimise the amount of cut and fill that will be required. The scheme also involves diverting some of the roof runoff to provide water for the animals.

Detailed design of the first phase animal enclosure was subsequently undertaken.

What our clients say …

"We are very grateful to Mark Stefan, his dedication and attention to fine detail approach was first class, especially as our brief was rather unusual. Creating a farm in a relatively small space of a primary school presented all sorts of issues. Without him, our project would never have got off the ground".
