Information about the services Alan Bishop THEMEWORKS Ltd can offer…


As a Corporate Member of BIAZA, we pride ourselves on our excellent working relationship with both zoo designers, the in-house interpretation and educational departments, curators and keepers.

Specialising in theming for zoo exhibits and enclosures, Alan Bishop THEMEWORKS Ltd has the expertise, skills and resources to create highly realistic, “virtual” habitats, thus establishing the company’s reputation as one of the better exponents of immersive theming.

On both new build projects and renovations, today’s zoo designers and zoo management are completely knowledgeable about the impact of immersive theming, both to the paying public but also to the zoo animals and exhibits. Alan Bishop THEMEWORKS Ltd has a wealth of experience in creating themed environments, from small vivariums to walk through enclosures. Whatever the size and scale of the work, the company understands the complexities of marrying up good design aesthetics with the more practical elements of animal husbandry, keeper/curator requirements and zoo-technical demands.


Visitor Attractions


In addition to our zoo projects, we are actively involved in other areas of the visitor attraction market: water parks, theme parks and leisure centres, as well as museums, exhibitions, nightclubs, restaurants and shopping malls.

In all of these areas, Alan Bishop THEMEWORKS Ltd applies the same conscientious approach, and an eye for detail which ensures that clients keep returning.

Alan Bishop THEMEWORKS Ltd is one of the UK’s leading producers of bespoke, hand sculpted render rockwork, stonerock, waterfalls and trees.


Scenic Art


With the recent addition of a new team of scenic artists, we have been strengthening the reputation our Scenic Art department. Operating alongside our long established core business, Alan Bishop THEMEWORKS Ltd can offer the following stand alone art services: murals, scenery, decorative paint effects, trompe l‘oeil, figurative and animal painting.

The above art services can also be readily integrated with our three dimensional themed elements to produce a convincing theming package.


Private Commissions


Having promoted, and won awards for our faux rockwork at both Chelsea and Hampton Court Flower Shows, we enjoy the opportunity of working in the private sector, where we have carried out some truly original projects.

As with our commercial projects, we are mindful of budget and time considerations, but in addition we like to think we offer a true one-to-one relationship with our client, ensuring that their ideas are understood and implemented to bring their dreams to fruition.

Recent projects include rock and water features – both big and small, grottoes, follies, architectural sculpture, artefacts and other garden ornamentation. In addition we have also completed privately commissioned murals and other specialist paint effect projects
