An Alcester based builder and landscaper has landed an unusual project at Fife Zoo in Scotland, four hundred miles from his hometown. 

Jake Grainger of Grainger’s Construction and Landscaping, is more familiar with garden transformations, patio design and driveway construction, but has agreed to carry out works to build an enclosure at the zoo for a Madagascan carnivore which predates lemurs inits natural environment.

Fife Zoo had been struggling to appoint a local contractor since 2021 to carry out building works as part of the zoo’s ten year master plan.

Jake said: ‘’The project at Fife Zoo is incredible exciting and after carefully viewing the specifications for the works we were able to source the best team and materials for the job at hand. We spent some time breaking ground at the zoo in late March and have already mapped out the foundations for the expansion project. It’s certainly the first time that I have completed works under the watchful gaze of a herd of endangered zebra.’’
