Royal Wharf Marketing Suite
The Royal Wharf public park is a stunning housing development built upon a 40-acre site on one of the most iconic waterfronts of the River Thames in East London.
Plants were contract grown and trees were imported from a German supplier ensuring all the soft-landscaping added impact to the project.
A tidal terrace was construction to make a marginal habitat along the River Thames next to the marketing suite, with marginal planting being added over 4 years to keep it in flower and maintain coverage for different habitats.
Kings were brought in by Mt. Anvil at design stage to price for the marketing suite.
Planters were rolled steel fabricated off site on sections and built on site, then top soiled and planted with the trees and planting scheme.
Paving with the lighting strip started in the building and carried out onto the main landscaping area in the front using Dutch on edge brick with every line of bricks being laid by string line.
Benches were installed by hand on pallet trucks and A-frame to set in situ.
