Guildford Business Park, Surrey
Radically transforming a Business Park
Guildford is an important business centre and is home to a large number of international and national corporate companies. Ericsson, Colgate-Palmolive, Philips are based at the Guildford Business Park and Legal & General, our client, wanted to remodel Guildford's most prominent corporate destination, installing a range of works to radically transform the business park to provide a contemporary environment befitting the parks status as a premier office location.
This 10,000m2 area design and build contract for hard and soft landscaping project required us to completely de-construct the site and demolish existing hard and soft landscapes.
As principal contractor we were responsible for the installation of a deep drain, bringing in new gas and electric services to the site, installing new street lighting, highway works, and the erection of illuminated signage and security bollards.
Key to the re-design was the installation of a new car park and laying 1,440m2 Kellen Breccia block paving along with 1,500 linear metres of kerbs and 2,500m2 of laid tarmac.
For the soft landscaping, 194 semi mature trees were planted along with 1,172 pre-prepared hedges and 10,000 3ltr plants.
We continued to be involved with the Park by providing full landscape maintenance services.
