Long-standing client Cooper Parry came to Urban Planters Derbyshire with a challenge: to create an interesting planting scheme in an awkward space between two sliding door entrances to its East Midlands office. The lack of space, busy footfall and dramatically fluctuating temperatures in this space meant creative thinking was needed to find the perfect solution.
The answer came in the form of a densely planted green wall with a variety of UV-resistant artificial plants creating a vibrant and dramatic green arch to welcome people as they entered the building.
As part of an overall planting refresh for the building, Cooper Parry also asked for a homely, biophilic look, so a selection of large-leafed plants in natural pots were casually positioned around the workplace to create a domestic, relaxed feel.
“Cooper Parry are all about Disrupt: Lead: Make Life Count! The wellbeing of our staff is hugely important to us. We have therefore worked with Urban Planters for a number of years and provided them with quite a tough sketchy brief during the fitout of our East and West Midlands offices. They take the time to listen, get to know what we are trying to achieve and have nailed the brief every time. Paul Rogers in particular has worked with us to achieve exactly what we want on time, on budget and with a first-class delivery. I cannot recommend Urban Planters highly enough, not just for their delivery but also aftercare.” Jo Giles, Cooper Parry
