Senior Project Manager Nigel Eady is one of the brains behind our biggest development ever.
Nigel describes the South East Asia Jungle Track as the most rewarding project he's ever worked on!
That’s high praise from the local Point Chevalier resident, animal lover, and former builder, who has over 30 years’ experience in construction management in New Zealand and the UK. He’s worked on everything from the Victoria & Albert Museum and Terrance Conran restaurant to local projects - like robotic operating theatres for organ transplants, schools, earthquake strengthening and creating a new gallery for Auckland Museum, an elite car showroom and workshop featuring Lamborghinis and Bentleys, and the Zoo’s giraffe house.
“The level of collaboration involving dozens and dozens of people – from architects and designers, engineers, builders, the Zoo’s Life Sciences team (our animal experts), our Facility Services team, local iwi and more, has been incredible,” says Nigel.
