Case Studies / Zoo

The Project

This is one of the world's oldest scientific zoos. It was opened almost 200 years ago, and was originally intended to be used as a collection for scientific study. However, it was opened to the public in 1847. Today, it houses a collection of 673 species and around 20,000 animals.

As well as being the first scientific zoo, it also opened the first reptile house (1849), first public aquarium (1853), first insect house (1881) and the first children's zoo (1938). With all these facilities, our engineers were inspecting and testing in many contrasting environments, and were praised by staff at the zoo for their delivery of reports, understanding and adaptability.

Protest Es Ltd carried out a programme of PAT testing in order to achieve the following:


  • Achieve compliance with the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 with a structured PPM

  • Meet the insurance companies requirements following the internal audit

  • Ensure that any potential health and safety issues are quickly addressed and highlighted

  • Collation of electrical documents for the whole site are safely held electronically in one place

  • Paperless reporting that can be held and viewed at all times securely online

  • Peace of mind for the duty holder(s) who are deemed responsible for health and safety

It was a great responsibility to carry out these works at such a prestigious and historic location, and our engineers enjoyed the visit as well.


Protest ES Ltd were chosen by ZSL London Zoo to deliver a programme of PAT testing. Known as London Zoological Gardens, it is the oldest scientific zoo in the world.
