Zoos & Aquariums
Interpretation • Visitor Experience
Arterial directors Jan Nowell and Nick Lawson have worked on zoo and aquarium environments for over 15 years. Together with the Arterial team, they have worked collaboratively with animal behaviourists, zoo keepers, maintenance teams, architects, landscape architects, horticulturalists and other specialists on some of the most significant precinct renewals and developments in Australia and Asia.
Further to our extensive zoo work, Arterial worked closely with Merlin Entertainment on all of their aquarium refurbishments in New Zealand, Australia and South East Asia for six consecutive years. Working globally with locations in Germany, Europe, the UK, Korea, Thailand and the USA, often at the same time, gave us invaluable project management experience, and experience in working cross-culturally. These projects have earned Arterial the reputation of being a unique design company that understands the specific requirements, challenges and opportunities of working with animals and marine life of all shapes and sizes. As a team, these projects have enabled Arterial to express our commitment to conservation issues in a meaningful and effective context.
