During the works we removed and replaced 530 tons of soil, 1,500m2 of paving and 375 tons of subbase and drainage material. Some of the voids that were located in the old roof structure were infilled and planted using 60m3 of specialist light weight substrate and drainage layers supplied by zinco.
A rainwater harvesting system has been incorporated under the podium paving to enable the storage of up to 95,000 litres of water that supplies the irrigation system that was installed by Watermatic. This means that the new trees and planting are thriving and the gardens look fabulous just a few months after installation.
It was a pleasure to work closely with Refolo Landscape Architects, Colliers International and Makers Construction Ltd on this exciting project, and the whole team was delighted when the project won a prestigious award at The UK Roofing Awards 2019 and Liquid Waterproofing Project of the Year 2019.
