Feasibility Studies & Due-Diligence

Before designing any aquarium project it is essential to understand the reasons why the aquarium is to be built and what it aims to achieve. The purpose of an aquarium can vary from a fully commercial operation, through to purely educational establishments. All of the ancillary aspects of an aquarium, such as cafes, restaurants and gift shops also require correct planned ensuring a successful facility. We offer full range of feasibility studies to our clients prior to any scale of aquarium project development.

Planning & Concept

Evolving from the initial concept designs that form the basis of the aquarium design, the individual aquaria need to tell their own story as part of the entire project. This is an opportunity not only to thrill the public with nature’s wonders, but also to inform and educate them of current scientific discoveries and ecologically significant information. ABT Aquatics is capable of providing initial outline planning to full scale design concept for exhibit to our clients with support from our extensive in-house and associated experts.

Management Support

Management support comes in many forms and stages of a project. We offer project supervision, including architectural construction overseeing and exhibit designs / commissioning. Our team of biologists also offers training for the aquarium staff and continual support ranging from veterinarian and pathology, through to nutrition and breeding programmes.
