The Vision

To create one of the most environmentally innovative schemes in the world, comprising buildings, conservatories, structures and gardens.

Our Role

We were appointed as Design Managers on the scheme by Grant Associates and Wilkinson Eyre.  We were asked to assist the design team in taking the scheme from their innovative design competition winner into reality, by providing specialist design procurement and construction planning services.

We provided complete design planning and programming to the team, monitoring the organisation of this huge and complex scheme.

Using our detailed construction knowledge we were able to test the buildability of proposals to ensure the greatest value to the client.

The Gardens opened in July 2012 and recently won the WAF World Building of the Year Award.
