National client Land Securities contracted Urban Planters to create a planting scheme to run underneath the refurbished shopping centre’s glass roof five stories, or almost 100ft, from the ground.
The challenge was not only to design a scheme which would catch shoppers’ eyes from down below, but would also suit the high levels of light, lack of heating and exposure to the elements under the open-sided glass roof.
In addition, the installation took place during the refurbishment works, with the main points of access for installing the plants up through the atrium from the ground floor.
Using members of Urban Planters’ technical team fully trained in health and safety when working at height, a row of 110 artificial trees and oversized bay tree balls plus 60 live displays – mainly seasonal flowering displays – were carefully lifted into place and the resulting scheme creates impact while softening the expansive glass roof.
