International Quarter London IQL
We continue our involvement at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, in the development known as the International Quarter London (IQL). This will be our eleventh consecutive year we have been working on the Olympic transformation project. Since 2009 we have installed the Willlerby Security Planters, the installation of the London Olympic South Park, 2012 Gardens and Stadium landscaping, maintainence of the 2012 Gardens during the Games, then in 2013 we installed our BALI Grand Award installation, the QEOP South Park Plaza and Pleasure Gardens. In 2014 we completed The Canal Park and Here East project installations. The IQL development has provided new homes, work spaces and retail outlets and following completion of the soft landcaping between buildings S5 & S6 we now commence work on the area known as S9.
The S5 & S6 project involved us in installing the soft landscaping which comprised of avenues of trees, not too dissimilar to The Promenade we planted back in 2013 within the Pleasure Gardens at South Park Plaza. Some of the trees such as the Tillia cordata (Limes) have girths between 90 -100mm and were planted within an avenue along with the Quercus palustris which have girths of between 90 – 100mm. In total we have planted 38 trees and over 8,000 herbaceous perennial plants within an area of 560 sq mts and working around the large Olympic Marker Tree, the Metasequoia glyptostroboides, which we planted a few years back.
The S9 installation involves the installiation of over 15,000 shrubs and plants, 50 semi mature trees and an irrigation system.
August 2017 and we installed phase 1 of the project, the Oak trees
