Project design & build

What we do and how we work depends entirely on what you and your project need

We can provide a full turnkey service – everything from design to handover. Our long experience of working this way for a diverse range of clients means we take the hassles and headaches off your hands, leaving you to focus on your project’s more exciting elements.

When it comes to design, Nautilus have recently expanded the possibilities even further by embracing VR technology: enabling clients to virtually experience their planned projects before they’ve even been built. 

Get in touch for more details!

We’re equally happy to consult, advise or help with any one-off aspect of a project if you don’t think you need our full range of services, whether it’s enclosure design, for example, or maintenance and planned upgrades to your existing projects

“Nautilus are extremely versatile and work to a high standard. they also advised and offered to help with any other questions I had!”

– James wright, SEA LIFE London Aquarium

our services

From initial 3d modelling to bespoke theming works & enclosure design, tank construction & life support systems. Nautilus create worlds above, below & everywhere you go.

AQUATIC
PROJECTS

Unparalleled Underwater

Although we never stop learning, the last 19 years have taught us an enormous amount about aquaria, so why not benefit from our experience?

From small mobile touch pools to brand new builds for large public projects, we cover aquaria from A-Z and back again.

ZOOLOGICAL
PROJECTS

Demanding guests, luxury accomodation

We pride ourselves on creating habitats and environments which perfectly meet their inhabitants’ needs and are sympathetic and non-toxic as well as easy to maintain for staff. Our displays are always attractive showcases for the exhibits, whether that involves water features and planting, or natural & architectural theming.

POOLS
& TANKS

Tanks…
very much

Whatever the size of pool or tank, we can either come and build it where you are, or construct it on our own premises and bring it to you.

Size is no object, at either end of the scale!

 

MURALS &
DISPLAYS

Where there’s a wall, there’s a way

Murals are more than mere decoration. The kinds of mural conjured by our scenic artists turn a wall into part of the display, extending its effect and giving the illusion of space.

Their singular expertise means a 2D backdrop can become a 3D theme, providing a seamless authentic experience.

THEMING &
SCULPTURAL

Make the most
of our creativity

We can supply, off-the-shelf, replicas from our range of artefacts. Or maybe you’d prefer us to create something truly life-like and unique to add to your exhibit’s wow-factor.

And rest assured, if it’s something we can’t currently lay our hands on, our talented sculptors love creating to order.

LIFE
SUPPORT

Creating & Maintaining necessary systems

Filtration and life support systems designed and installed specifically for you

 

TANKS &
GLAZING

BRILLIANT WINDOWS
ON AMAZING WORLDS

Nothing fazes our glaziers. Something small to look through? A larger panel, a walk-through tunnel, a floating, glass-bottomed walkway or raft? None of this is a problem – our team is as happy working with glass as acrylic.

And we’ll liaise with your team to make sure it is accurately designed for a seamless installation.

TECHNICAL
SUPPORT

CALL US UP,

The skills we’ve amassed in all the time we’ve been doing this mean we offer reliably high levels of support to quickly sort out any issues.

If you have poor water quality, a leaking tank or equipment that needs to be replaced or repaired, we have an expert who can help, whether by phone or by turning up on site to make a full report.
