Southbank Place SE1 360
We have completed the hard & soft landscaping work on the three roof terraces at Southbank Place which is the redevelopment of the Shell Centre, York Road, London, SE1. This new vibrant quarter is adjacent to Westminster and next to the London Eye. The developers, Braeburn Estates Limited Partnership are adding to the diversity of the public realm on the South Bank and the capital and are creating an elegant landscape and roof terraces for the residential properties being built.
The roof terraces support a number of bespoke planters which were constructed at our Four Elms Nursery in Kent. These mild steel power coated black planters, 17 in number, hold over 122m3 of panting material and incorporate benches and storage, and are cladded in air dried FSC 100% Cumaru timber. The planters contain a range of shrubs and herbaceous plants, the palette being designed by Townshend Landscape Architects.
We are proactive throughout a project lifecycle which includes input into design development, value engineering, delivery logistics and programming aspects. For this project there are specific designs for the planters and we prepared mock-ups down at our nursery in Kent for the client’s approval before construction.
The complexity associated with any installation of roof structures, especially in central London, requires meticulous planning and careful programming of deliveries. Lift time can also be in high demand by all trades working on a scheme, so coordination and micro managing every aspect ensures not only the safety of our operatives but also ensuring completion of works on time and within budget. We are sharing with you below, a 360degree pictorial view of the works which took place on Level 5 earlier in 2018.
