White Hart Lane London
The new Spurs stadium has had its challenges from a construction point of view, but we have been able to finally complete the works and the first real test for the stadium will be on the 3rd April 2019 when Spurs welcome Crystal Palace to their new home.
We have successfully installed the soft landscaping, planting 42 semi mature trees with girths ranging from 100 to 120mm, and planting 7,500 shrubs, have installed 10 bespoke planters, a podium garden, 3 irrigation systems and 3 stair-way gardens! We hope Spurs and their supporters enjoy the landscaped areas and wish the club well in their new home.
80 Fenchurch St EC3
In the heart of the City of London, the new construction at 80 Fenchurch Street will offer a rare alternative to City towers through the inclusion of six landscaped roof gardens. We have been successful in being awarded the hard & soft landscaping along with bespoke irrigation for this project, working for principal contractor Skanska.
Construction is underway and scheduled for completion in Spring 2020 with our works commencing in November this year. Landscape architects are Hyland Edgar Driver
Reviving a Garden
Calling on our expertise to reinvigorate a garden new or old is an often a plea for help when either a client is not happy on how the landscape has been cared for or wishes to ask our advice on implementing a dedicated maintenance regime to bring a garden back to life.
One such plea was made early last year at the new Nine Elms Sky Garden where a client was seeking our advice and guidance on a recently installed Sky Garden on the 35th Floor, an atrium in the 8th floor and interior garden on the 1st floor. Our maintenance manager and head gardener visited the site and drew up a bespoke maintenance plan for each garden to deliver and meet the client’s desired expectations.
Wood Wharf London
Further to our earlier announcement on securing the works for the installation of roof terraces on two new buildings currently known as A2 and A3 within Canary Wharf’s new district, Wood Wharf further hard & soft landscaping works have been awarded for the infrastructure at ground floor level which includes irrigation and the installation of over 60 semi mature trees.
IQL Stratford S9
We are continuing with our involvement in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park transformation project at Stratford, East London with works starting shortly at the International Quarter London (IQL) S9 build. Having completed soft landscaping installations between buildings S5 & S6 we are tasked to install over 15,000 shrubs and plants, 50 semi mature trees and an irrigation system.
We manage all contractual requirements with regular inspections and audits following an installation of hard and soft landscaping. Once the planted areas have established and we have fulfilled our defects period, we pass responsibility for the ground maintenance to the client. However, following the successful completion of our contractual obligations, we are often contracted for a further term of ground maintenance having established good plant husbandry on the project.
Recently we have secured contracts for Nova Victoria SW1, B1 Southbank SE1, Riverwalk SW1, Rathbone Place W1 and Paddington Central WC2 & White City Place W12 where we have placed gardeners to oversee the maintenance.
We are proud sponsors of the Otford Utd Juniors FC Wanderers Under 16s football team by providing support for the team's kit. The lads are well into the new footballing season playing within the Crowborough & District League and have had a reasonable start to the season. We wish them well for their remaining matches.
Bat & Bird Boxes
With many new builds and landscape installations we are seeing part of the planning permission conditions include an Ecology Report on the development area. One such project we are working on, Teddington Riverside, an Ecological Mitigation and Enhancement Scheme report by The Ecology Consultancy has recommended specific measures to meet these requirements. A full report is shown on our Environment page.
Four years on and we are still very active within Crest Nicholson's Finberry new homes development in Ashford Kent. Having just completed the Finberry Village Centre Play Area we are now continuing with landscaping works which include hedgerow plants, tree installations, timber benches, play and sports equipment installations will commence in one of the new neighbourhoods known as Captain's Wood. The play area equipment involves the installation of various units such as a Forest Bug Springer, Triple Balance Beam, Entry Seesaw Nest swing, Village House, a climbing structure and Hexagonal Swing.
Principal Place London
We are back having been instructed to install the hard & soft landscaping for this desirable residential development in the east side of the City of London. The scope of works comprises shallow drainage, ductwork and MEP containment, EPS and subbase, concrete topping slabs, street furniture, architectural metalwork and soft landscaping. The site is divided into Zones and is progressively released by Multiplex to us in sequence.
Phase 1 of our works were completed by installing the soft landscaping for the Marketing Suite. This involved removing the existing hard & soft landscaping in-situ and replace with new paving and the planting of shrubs. Now that one of the new prestigious apartment buildings is complete the Marketing Suite has moved within this building and we have installed the landscaping around the apartment. Other phases include hard & soft landscaping continuing around the complete build including the installation a small number of activity pieces.
RBS Head Quarters Scotland
Willerby Landscapes have again secured the maintenance contract for this prestigious BALI Award for Maintenance site for a further 4 years! We have been proud custodians of the campus grounds for over 15 years and the extension to our contract is testament to our team of operatives, most of whom have been working on the grounds for all these years. The Willerby team work closely with the client and supports various RBS employee community programs along with providing a monthly newsletter on what is going on within the landscape.
Night Time Tree Install
It is not unusual for us to install mature trees within our programme of works, just take a look at the Battle Bridge Place Oak Tree on the King Cross Development page as an example. However, being called upon to install a mature 90cm girth Quercus palustris (Pin Oak) on a bridge over a London Tube line requires precise planning and coordination with several stakeholders and involves night time work for our team. Once the necessary authorisations are in place, a date was set and at 2am in the morning our team were ready to lift the tree and place it in the previously dug tree pit at Principal Place London EC2. With an installation window of only a couple of hours between the last and first Tube we had to get it right…no room for errors!
